The product conditioning consists of different layers of packaging, we review the key concepts for the selection of the optimal packaging of products. The primary packaging is the one that is in direct contact with the product and keeps it in optimal conditions.
This pack defines the smallest unit of consumption, facilitating the unit sale of the product. The single-dose packaging market is essentially divided into two formats: stick pack and sachet.
Sachet format is an airtight package, small in size with 4 seals. Maybe its most popular use is for powdered medicines, but it can also contain viscous products such as ketchup sauce or even a folded cosmetic wipe.
It is also common to use sachets in sampling and promotional purposes, since its format allows it to be included in magazines and publications.
Stick pack has a tubular shape and its size will depend on the type of product to be packaged. Perhaps the application that first comes to mind is sugar in the restaurant industry, but there are applications in countless food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic or chemical products.
We can find from small format stick packs with micro-dosages to large size packs for products that require larger capacity.
