What is sachet packing?
Sachet packing is a cost-effective method for sealing small – often dosed or portion-controlled – products. It’s an automatic process that uses vertical bagging techniques to pack dry products, powders and liquids.
Sachets are sealed air-tight, to preserve products and keep them fresh – making it the perfect packing solution for foods and edible liquids.
Plus, our sachet packing services include built-in printing and a range of shapes, sizes and colours – for example, three-side weld sachets, with a fourth folded side. So, we create unique, branded sachets that are ready to hit the shelves straight from our facility.
What products are suited to sachet filling?
Sachet packing is ideal for a range of products, including dry food, powders and liquids.
Vertical bagging technology effortlessly weighs products and packs them in controlled dosed sachets, making it ideal for product samples or supplements, like magazine taster sachets or spices in cooking kits.
Air-tight sealing and built-in foil film preserve products, too – so food stays fresh and fragrances locked in, and smells don’t leak out.
Other items suited to sachet packing include:
- Non-food liquids like gels, lotions and creams
- Granular items like salt, sugar and spices
- Food products like small sweets and chocolates
- Capsules and tablets
- Pellets and bird feed
