Convenience of Flexible Packaging
Give your customers the convenience to enjoy your product on the go with single serve portions that can bend, fold and be stored almost anywhere.

These packs are so small that they are more quickly produced on our machines, keeping the costs per-stick pack low.
Flexible packaging is one of the hottest packaging trends on the market, but it does require specialized machinery to transform the material into a finished… Read More »
