Our customer approached us with a ‘custom-made’ request for small pre-printed sachets (around 20g) for salad toppings. The sachets are attached to the outsides of their salad bags. To do this in an automated manner, it was necessary to supply the toppings in the sachets, which were linked to each other with perforated edges. They would then be separated using a machine.
A challenging request, as it was not something we had ever done before. A great deal of flexibility and coordination was needed between the machine builder, the customer and ourselves in order for the project to succeed. It was therefore all the more satisfying that the packets of salad and the sachets of toppings attached to them reached the stores in Germany after nine months, and that they are proving to be a great success!
