Stick Pack Packaging And Powder Packaging

What Is A Stick Pack?

A stick pack is the ideal single serve packaging solution. Brands are drawn to this form factor because it is convenient and user-friendly. It allows for easy dispensing and on-the-go consumption. This makes it highly desirable for products such as single serve drink powders and vitamin supplements, like collagen.

Here are some of the top 5 reasons consumers are drawn to stick pack products.

  • Portability: Small and lightweight, making them easy to transport and carry with you on the go. This is ideal for people who are always on the  move, such as students, athletes, and business travelers.
  • Convenience: They’re easy to open and use. Simply add water, shake, and enjoy! This is perfect for people who don't have time to prepare a full meal or snack.
  • Freshness: Sealed with ultra- high barrier film to keep the powder fresh until you're ready to use it. This ensures that you always have a delicious and refreshing drink on hand.
  • Variety: There is a wide variety of single serve powdered drinks available, so you can find one that suits your taste and dietary needs.
  • Waste reduction: Single serve packages help to reduce food waste. Since you only use one serving at a time, you're less likely to end up with leftovers.
