What is the best packaging for salt, spices or herbs?


Rovema Solutions For Salt, Sugar & Spice Products

Rovema has been packaging spice for decades all over the world. The spice group is one of the most dynamic product group from Paprika, to pepper corns to bay leaves. Spice has been packaged in many type of packaging styles from pillow bags to more premium styles in flat bottom style bags with the gable top featuring a zipper reclosure or tin-tie. Spice is also introduced with other products such as rice, and many other food items.


Due to the wide variety of Spice products, the items can be filled with many different methods. For powdery type spices, such as Paprika, it can be dosed with ROVEMA servo auger filler, model SD. For spice products that are more uniform in shape such as salt or pepper corns, the spices can be filled by a cup feeder.

Either one of ROVEMA’s VDD cup filler or SD auger filler are an efficient dosing solution. The both can be mounted over a ROVEMA bagger for a compact and small footprint. This solution offers a single control platform via the HMI. A scale can also be used for spice products such as bay leaves. In this case, we have established relationships with a variety of scale manufactures to offer a turn-key solution. In some cases, multiple fillers are used for a product mixture.


There are many different package styles Rovema can offer with our family of Vertical Form, Fill, and Seal Machines from simple pillow style bags to flat bottom style bags with a shelf ready appearance. Typical vertical bag applications for rice can utilize a variety of films such as heat sealable laminates, or LDPE or films.

Additional recloseable features can be offered such as a zipper reclosure. An intermittent or continuous motion vertical bagger can be offered for spice applications depending on the application requirements. For customers that want to provide a premium bag and eliminate the glass or plastic jars, ROVEMA offers the SBS Brick pack machine. ROVEMA can provide flat bottom style bags with the gable top folded with a tin-tie or recloseable tape. This style will reduce your carbon footprint and reduce your overall packaging costs.


ROVEMA can offer a traditional bag and box line with a horizontal cartoner. In conjunction with our auger fillers, cup feeders, and baggers this is a winning turn-key solution with one control platform.
