How are Your Sachets Made?

A quick guide to how our sachets are made:

The high barrier laminate reels (either plain or pre-printed) are where the process begins, these are threaded onto the machine where they are then folded to form the shape of your sachet (either square or rectangle).

As the sachet passes through the printer the batch and best before details are stamped on for traceability and consumer information, we can also add several lines of text if required such as product name / flavour / instructions etc.

The machine then heat seals the laminate to form the sachet seals, these then have a tear notch added for easy opening.

The sachets are then accurately cut to size down the middle of the seal.

Meanwhile your bulk powder is loaded from above into the machine hopper and is dosed by the machine into your sachets which are then heat sealed at the top.

The complete sachets pass through a metal detector for food safety and an automated check weigher, all conforming sachets pass along the conveyor into bulk boxes.

We have a range of laminates available please feel free to discuss options with us.  You then just need to arrange for your powder or liquid to come into us and we will schedule your production slot.
