This pouch is configured to maximize pack functionality during product use with its unique spout, design and material selection. It improves accessibility of a traditional dish and enhances consumer experience by encouraging fans to grab a pack, fry them and enjoy binging, making it a holistic, do-it-yourself offering.

Vada-cooking is not easy! However, the spout configuration helps in releasing the batter in round, doughnut shape formations while deep-frying. It’s shape and structure offer handling & squeezing convenience while an oil-grade sealant allows easy product application & preparation. Every consumer gets a brand new pack with a tamper-evident sleeve.

Registered Holograms for Sachets

This solution addresses brand-security & shelf-appeal needs. The sachet incorporates a unique holographic transfer process that creates registered holo-patterns without a holographic film in the laminate. This offers creative registration or marriage of the hologram with the artwork that improves aesthetics & pack identification among consumers with distinct shelf-appeal.

Shampoo sachets are offered at low price-points & rarely feature special & differentiating aesthetics.

This pack with its sachet format offers consumers not just product affordability and accessibility but also protection from counterfeiting.

Design USP: unparalleled drop resistance & package protection from counterfeiting. Being double-gusseted, the pouch expands to pack more product volumes while maintaining optimal shelf-space & visual-appeal. It features registered gold effects without using metallic inks.
