Packaging of energy paste in stick packs: Technology against child malnutrition
Severe acute malnutrition is a sad reality for many children in the world, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. This condition is the leading cause of child deaths and it is something we should all care about.
However, there are organizations that are working hard to make a difference in the lives of these children. One of them is Project Peanut Butter, an organization that focuses on providing therapeutic food to severely malnourished children.
Project Peanut Butter (PPB) is a non-profit organization with the goal of providing nutritional and medical support to children suffering from severe acute malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere. With a mission to treat severe malnutrition, the world's leading cause of child deaths, PPB uses effective, locally produced, ready-to-use therapeutic foods.
How did they do it?
To achieve this important mission, PPB required an efficient packaging solution to meet their production and distribution requirements. That's why they decided to purchase the SP9 packaging machine with 8 lanes, compact and capable of running up to 70 cycles per minute, using reels up to 900 mm wide.
The SP9 machine is ideal for dosing powders, granules, solids, liquids or pasty products, making it the ideal choice for this project, as it allows efficient production and packaging of energy paste in stick pack format. In addition, its compact size makes it ideal for use in small and medium-sized production plants.
The stick pack packaging of Project Peanut Butter's energy paste has become a resounding success, allowing the organisation to expand its reach and improve the lives of even more children. The efficiency and versatility of the SP9 machine has been key to the success of PPB's energy paste production as a reliable and versatile solution that contributes to improving the lives of many children around the world.
