Abstract (en)

The present invention is directed to a flow-wrapped package (10) for containing at least one unit of a consumer product, preferably at least one tablet of a consumer product, and most preferably at least one tablet of a laundry or cleaning detergent composition. Said package is made out of a non-oriented film, thus having high tear-resistant properties. A means is provided which helps an adult user to grab each side of a seal (14) and exert coordinated pulling movements for peeling off the seal and open the package. This means is achieved by providing at least two opposite sides of said flow-wrapped package with longitudinal seals that are to be unfolded and grabbed by the user. <IMAGE>
