Packaging for sports nutrition

Global trend for a healthy lifestyle is continuously spreading year after year. Consumption of specialized sports nutrition and biologically active supplements for keeping fit and improving training results is growing in popularity not only with athletes but also with health-conscious individuals.

Sports nutrition is a special group of balanced food additives that very often have form of powder mixtures. Such mixtures need to be protected from oxygen, moisture, UV-rays and biological or mechanical contamination, therefore the quality of packaging plays a crucial role.

Uniflex offers health supplement packaging not only for sports nutrition products, but also for vitamins, protein powders and nutrition bars.

Types of packaging for sports nutrition and dietary supplements

Uniflex produces several packaging solutions for supplements:

Can be made of single-layer polymer film or multilayer laminates.

Custom pouches for packaging vitamins and other health products consist of several layers of polymer material and are suitable for manual or semi-automatic filling. Optionally can be supplemented with notches for easy opening, a zipper (zip lock or press-lok) for repeated closure, and dispensers for convenient removal of liquids.

Uniflex, a leading nutritional supplement packaging company, manufactures self-adhesive labels of any complexity. Manufacturers of sports nutrition, supplements, and vitamins can apply them on bags (transparent or with unified design) and it will allow placing additional/promotional information on the pack and give more market appeal.
