Slõ Milkshakes+: the 1st pre-thickened powdered oral nutritional supplements for dysphagia have new sachet packaging.
We were going to wait until we had our new packs made up – but decided to show you some printed laminate taken off the press, because we are so excited about it?
We wanted to make using Slõ Milkshakes+ even easier, and so for the past few months, we’ve been working with a specialist sachet manufacturer. Darren and his team at Labels Unlimited (www.labelsunlimited.co.uk) have made it possible.
The triple barrier laminate has better product feature,s including ‘tear ability’, making them much easier to open. Something which is important for the elderly, or a spouse carer. It is light and flexible which makes holding it and emptying the contents out easier.
We are also trialling an antibacterial coating – another 1st for the sector. Applied to the outside of the pack, it prevents transfer of contaminents and pathogens on the hands to the pack. We are currently waiting further test results to confirm its longer term effectiveness and will let you know about those results when we have them.
Finally and just as importantly, the film allows us to print in colour? Our drive is always to make those with dysphagia feel totally included. By printing in colour it looks like a milkshake available in shops, but encapsulates all of our product information and legal criteria.
If you would like a sample, just email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post one to you.
