Stand-up Pouch with Spout
HALLE/STEINFELD, Nuremberg—NORDENIA recently presented its the Nor®SpoutBag at FachPack Trade Fair. Along with other typical features of a high-quality flexible packaging solution, the new Nor®SpoutBag also features a centered opening with a screw-cap integrated into the pouch top. This allows for optimal, attractive presentation at the point of sale. The handle on the back also makes the product easy to carry with just one hand.
"The Nor®SpoutBag offers manufacturers of liquid, paste, and dry bulk goods an innovative alternative to traditional, rigid plastic packaging," explains Alfons Kruse, plant manager of the Steinfeld Plant. "The pouch can be transported and disposed of in a space-saving manner, provides excellent product protection, and is easy to open, pour, and close again." Nor®SpoutBag can be used for a wide range of applications.
Throat Lozenge Tube
PARSIPPANY, N.J.—Reckitt Benckiser has launched a portable "Handy Tube" version of its Strepsils® line of sore throat lozenges.
The product has been traditionally available in blister packaging, but Reckitt Benckiser decided to launch the Handy Tube to give customers a more convenient way to carry Strepsils with them throughout the day.
Reckitt Benckiser worked with Süd-Chemie Performance Packaging to adopt its tube and desiccant stopper package design. Although Süd-Chemie can provide tubes already printed, the tubes are also conducive to labeling. Strepsils Handy Tubes are labeled with the product's standard brand imagery, as well as all necessary regulatory text as required by each market.
