Why use Setterstix paper sticks instead of plastic for your Lollipop production?

Productivity - our paper lollipop sticks and sucker sticks are strong and manufactured to extremely close tolerances to ensure consistent length & diameter, thereby providing the highest level of productivity and minimal waste.  Candy adheres to the paper stick more readily.  Plastic sticks normally must be notched or serrated so the candy doesn't fall off.  This extra treatment may make plastic more costly than paper.  Plastic sticks (normally hollow & very flexible) may also tend to jump or pop out during insertion or removal from the forming dyes if any excess pressure exists.  This may cause jams, lost product & increased down-time.

Safety - although the paper sticks are strong enough for all high-speed lollipop production machines, they are safer in the hands of children or if chewed.  They are odor & taste free, have no sharp edges or serrated surfaces and will not break or splinter.

Environmentally Friendly - paper sticks made from natural fiber will completely biodegrade as opposed to plastic, thereby posing no environmental threat.  Further, paper is made from a clean renewable resource vs.
the petroleum by-products used in the manufacture of plastics.
