Stick Packs

Named after its shape, stick packaging is conveniently small, easy to handle, and ideal for “on-the-go” products. It is also a popular choice for many pharmaceutical and single-dose products. Stick packages are produced using flexible film (foil, paper or plastic), and the “form-fill-seal” method of packaging, which is suitable for a wide array of powders and granulated products. Dispensing the product from a stick pack is facilitated by its narrow, tubular shape; and an added benefit is that sticks use less film than other package styles, so the impact on the environment is reduced.
