The packs take aim at more common sachet packets designed for condiments, sauces, salad dressings, and olive oils.

Sarong’s polystyrene packs are vertically thermoformed, filled, and sealed in machines like the model FP-40, which is designed for liquid and semi-liquid contents. Contents can be hot- or cold-filled, and are heat sealed.
