Nature’s Sunshine Products recently acquired a stick pack machine to allow the manufacture of all of our stick pack products in-house. Stick Packs are single-use powder drinks packaged in a convenient plastic “stick” that can be torn across the top and poured into water for easy mixing. Nature’s Sunshine uses stick packs in its Solstic® line of products and in the drink mix portion of CleanStart®.
Previously, stick pack packaging was outsourced. Purchasing the stick pack machine allows Nature’s Sunshine better control over the quality of the product and a shorter lead time. Within the next six months, NSP will also install a machine that will count and package all of the stick packs into cartons, further improving packaging quality and turn-around time.
