The category of nuts and nut packaging contains so many varieties that it simply doesn’t make sense to list them all on this page.
Some of the most popular nuts sold today around the world include cashews, peanuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, almonds, pistachios, brazil nuts, walnuts, chestnuts, and pine nuts. Even a number of seeds – such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseeds – are often treated as or mixed with nuts in a variety of snack food products and other formats.
Because most nuts are free flowing products – with the exception of candy-coated varieties which may have some stickiness – they are generally a straightforward product for linear and multi-head scales.
However, the variety of primary packaging formats used by nut companies necessitates that any nut weighing and filling machinery system is flexible enough to accommodate those needs.
Nuts are often packaged in pillow bags and premade pouches for convenience-focused packages, with larger quantities often packaged in tins, bottles, clamshell containers, and more.
