StickPacks – slim, tube-shaped packets – have become a preferred packaging design in Europe and Japan, making available to consumers the convenience and flexibility their active lives demand.

Colonial Enterprises recognizes that the unique design of stickpack offers benefits both to its own customers as well as consumers, such as:

  • Ease of opening and dispensing
  • Convenience of single-dose dispensing
  • Fill weight range: 0.2 g to 4 g – subject to actual product properties, density and flow characteristics (results dependent on actual fill trials)
  • High degree of fill accuracy
  • Portability for use – office, school and travel
  • Ideal sample option
  • Product differentiation
  • Content preservation, with a shelf life up to 24 months
  • Reduction in paper and foil usage – an eco-responsible benefit
  • High-quality film available, from 7 micron to 12 micron foil barrier, provides zero MVTR and OTR
  • Flexibility of pack-out configuration
  • Marketing surface on individual stickpacks is ideal for messaging and instructions

With sophisticated technology and a dedicated manufacturing suite, Colonial Enterprises is equipped to run both stability and commercial production. The stability equipment platform is identical to the commercial equipment in a one-lane configuration, while the commercial version is configured with 3 lanes. The stability as well as the commercial equipment is located in manufacturing suites with low relative humidity and controlled residual oxygen in a temperature-controlled environment.

The equipment can:

  • Handle initial R&D
  • Manage stability programs
  • Create sales and marketing samples
  • Perform scale-up
  • Manufacture commercial production
