Doypack, stand up bag, or plastic pouch, is a type of packaging produced from multi-laminate plastic films.
Today, plastic is arguably the most commonly used type of packaging, and pouches are increasingly growing in popularity in the flexible packaging industry due to their versatility and environmental benefits when compared to other packaging methods.
What are the advantages of using plastic as materials for packaging?
Pouches are the most flexible and adaptable type of packaging, and allow you to customise the shape, size and materials according to your unique product specifications. Pouches are also lightweight and reduce storage space.
Plastic pouches use fewer resources to produce than other common types of packaging such as plastic tubs and tins. They also cut down the environmental impact of your products by reducing the carbon footprint during transportation and producing less wastage on disposal.
Are pouches suitable for food packaging and preservation?
Stand up pouches are an ideal food packaging solution thanks to their durability and ease of transportation. What’s more, our microwaveable food pouches are made from laminated PET and LLDPE food grade materials, produced to withstand extreme temperatures and high pressures.
What are the advantages of plastic packaging in retail?
Pouches enable product manufacturers to clearly and professionally include all nutritional (food products) and marketing information without having to apply costly and time-consuming labels.
Plastic packaging is highly economical and instantly impacts on consumers in a retail environment.
Plastic packaging allows manufacturers to print eye-catching, high-quality custom design, and thereby increase product visibility in a retail setting.
Why use resealable plastic bags for your product packaging?
Pouch packaging is consumer-friendly. Customers can simply tear open the pouch to access the contents. Grip seal closures can be used to enable easy opening or sealing for repeated use of products – no need to eat all of your chocolate at once anymore!
The rise in the popularity of resealable packaging over non-resealable counterparts, especially when it comes to food packaging and storage, is partly attributed to the fact that it allows consumers to access food on the go, as well as being able to store anything that remains uneaten for a later time without compromising the freshness of the product.
