What is a stick sachet?
Stick type bags are the most common types of packages for various product groups:
- liquid and pasty (mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise);
- loose or granular (sugar, salt, coffee, spices, pepper);
- household chemicals and personal care products (shampoos, liquid soap, laundry detergent, creams, glue).
Stick sachets are a convenient form of packaging for a one-off use. The form of the sticks is an elongated narrow bag with tightly sealed edges. The dimensions of the long and the short sides have a ratio at least 2: 1. The packing volume of the stick is from 0.1 to 100 g. The material for production is a polymer film with different barrier properties and other materials. Such packaging is widely used in public catering, in long-distance transport, in retail trade.
Sticks with products are conveniently and compactly stored in the warehouse boxes or in the counter show boxes. Demonstration to buyers is realized in different ways. The most advantageous option is special sectional racks, where packages are placed vertically or horizontally in demo boxes. To increase the attractiveness, the stick sachet can be made from matte, glossy or pearl film and finished with partial varnish.
