About Stand Up Pouch Packaging
Stand up pouches and bags are called such because they have the ability to stand up on their own by design. Stand up bags feature a strong bottom gusset that creates a base to hold up the product.
Stand up pouches and bags are available in a variety of volume capabilities and filling weights. Functional enhancements can be incorporated into the packaging based on the needs of the application, including re-sealable zippers, tear notches, hang holes, and degassing valves.
For operations seeking to reduce their carbon footprint, stand up packaging is typically better for the environment than more traditional packaging. When compared to bag-in-box, cans, and cartons, stand up pouches and bags use as much as 75 percent less packaging material.
In addition, stand up pouches and bags can be created using various combinations of protective coatings and barrier films. No matter what type of product you’re packaging, solutions already exist to meet the needs of your specific application. Clear, metallic, or paper materials are often used in the construction of these bags and pouches.
