Sachet Packaging, simplified by Nichrome.

Today across the world, across industries, sachet packs are growing in popularity. These small packets, made by sealing flexible packaging material on all four sides, are now the norm in the aviation and hospitality sectors. Along with sachets, you’ll see stickpacks too which are made by sealing narrow, tube-like packaging with a continuous side seam, at both sends.

You’ll see sachets and stickpacks in hotel rooms, restaurant tables, takeaway boxes, coffee shops and food trays on airlines. They are usually filled with condiments and spices like sugar, salt, dairy whitener, coffee, ketchup, sauces, herbs, mayonnaise, etc. or even candies and chocolates.

However, these light-weight, single-use packs are increasingly prevalent for a wide range of other FMCG products such as soaps, handwash, detergents, hair oils, hair colour, fairness creams, among others. Many pharma and cosmetic products too are available in these easy-to-carry & use, economical packs.
