development achievement.

“We took one of our most successful product lines, >Your< Iron Line, and utilized our expertise in advanced product forms to develop a line extension with an ever-better user experience and even better differentiation for our clients,” commented PharmaLinea’s Marketing & PR Director, Matevž Ambrožič. “Market data shows that direct sticks are a very hot delivery format – for example in some of the most developed European markets such as Italy or Germany, some of the fastest growing SKUs among iron and UTI supplements are in stick pack form.”

PharmaLinea’s Technical Director, Denis Đalapa, added: “Direct sticks are a great format for consumers. They can use them on the go, without water, there’s less chance of spilling or wrong measurements. But for manufacturers, they bring several challenges. A lot of knowledge and effort is required to be able to deliver a pleasant taste, with no teeth or tongue staining, and the right texture and consistency.”

We are very pleased with the development achievement our R&D was able to deliver with the new products.
