Stick Packs originated in Japan in the ’90s to reduce the carbon footprint of filled plastic bottles & lower transportation costs. It has become widely accepted in the US as a better single-serving solution for dispensing both powders and liquids used in food or non-food applications.
Its handheld size and narrow shape easily pour into bottles and cups compared to the old-styled rectangular sachet. The tube-like shape quickly releases using all the contents without leaving residue.
They are excellent for single-serve applications for portion-controlled products, concentrates, or on-the-go travel. Marketers use it for free brand sampling at trade shows & giveaway advertising promotions.
