Handtmann Unveils ConPro Sachet System: Revolutionizing Sustainable Packaging for Diverse Food Products

By Hensley Associates   

The Handtmann ConPro sachet system is a groundbreaking technology that offers a sustainable and innovative packaging solution for a wide range of food products. This new system packages fluid or pasty food products—from jams and cheeses to energy gels and meat snacks—into small, perfectly portioned edible sachets made from alginate, a seaweed-based material.

Unlike traditional plastic packaging, these alginate packets are completely edible and biodegradable, breaking down organically within weeks. This makes them an excellent choice for environmentally conscious consumers and businesses looking to reduce their ecological footprint.

Two key innovations of the newest Handtmann coextruding technologies make this possible. The ability to create an exceptionally thin yet effective alginate packaging and the precision to portion small, separated volumes at high speeds, preventing any squeezing or loss of contents at the sachet ends.

Potential uses:

  • Nutritional Supplements: Ideal for competitive athletes, these carbohydrate-rich sachets provide quick energy bursts during endurance activities and the packets can be composted post-use without leaving any residue.
  • Flavor Packages: Convenient mustard sauces and jelly packets are popular as an addition to cheeses, meats, fish, or desserts.
  • Cheese Snacks: Enjoy cheese in a new, convenient sachet form—perfect for on-the-go snacking.
  • Salami Pillow: Explore new culinary possibilities with raw sausage products innovatively packaged in edible sachets.

The Handtmann ConPro sachet system not only expands the possibilities for food packaging but also aligns with sustainable practices by eliminating the need for synthetic materials. It’s an ideal solution for both the food industry and eco-conscious consumers looking for convenient, innovative, and environmentally friendly options.
