We all know the ubiquitous condiment packets of ketchup, mustard & mayo - right? I've found that these are often referred to as sachets. Does anyone here use these for their products? I suspect that a packaging machine may be rather expensive if a retail solution is purchased but a DIY solution may be an option if a large volume is not necessary.

I would think that a roll of heat seal able plastic film/tubing would work but the hardest part would be if a "tear off" point is needed.

I'd like to be able to package 1/4 -1/2 oz of product (about same density as water so 7-14ml) and think this might be feasible if a process could be devised.

Here is a place that offers some solutions.
