Low barrier flexible packaging in the form of polyethylene has been prevalent for quite some time. For “quick sale” products, this type of packaging has sufficed but with the mountainous rise in products such as Organic, Gluten Free, Rye, Mediterranean breads, Pita, and the like with their inherent requirement for extended shelf life, vacuum packaging has come to the fore. Even at the most elementary level, vacuum pouches extend shelf-life.
This packaging option has a wide range of applications but is a great way to showcase your products at the same time as keeping them in good shape. The formed container is generally transparent or semi-transparent and the freshness is maintained with a durable, flexible sealed lid.
Thermoforming films offer another cost-effective way to package products on the line, horizontally forming the pack, filling it and then sealing it. This option can be revolutionary for a growing business that needs to deliver products to a wider market and still maintain shelf-life.
Similar to the stand-up pouch, the box pouch adds another dimension to your shelf-life packaging. The base of this pouch has a much larger surface area which provides a more vertically stable product on the shelf.
Stand up pouches are a light-weight and durable replacement for cans and glass jars, providing a revolutionary packaging solution for many applications. This flexible packaging offers many advantages, allowing product visibility, better health and safety in handling, reducing transport and storage costs as well as improving production line costs.
