The Stick Pack /Pillow provides an objective advantage over flat packages with three or four seals: for the same content, it saves approximately 30% of packaging material, although this also means a smaller surface area for including product information or highlighting the brand name.
The Stick Pack format appeared in the 1970s and emerged as a novel alternative to the flexible single-dose packs that had existed up to that time. Its tubular and elongated shape, very different from traditional flat packs, made the Stick Pack an aesthetically attractive package that quickly became popular. Today, the Stick Pack format is present in products of any sector, and has become consolidated as an everyday single-dose presentation.
