Stand Up Pouch

Also known as Doypacks, the Stand Up Pouch is a functional and lightweight pouch that can stand on its bottom for storage and use. It consists of a zip-lock closure used to maintain the freshness of the product. The Stand Up Pouch has become increasingly popular against the many different packaging options in the market due to its flexibility and customisation ability, making it the go-to choice for producers of F&B industries, household items, pet food, and many more. Stand-up Pouches’ applications include powders, snacks, liquids, and ready-to-drink beverages. Unlike ordinary packaging mediums such as cardboard boxes and glass bottles, the Stand Up Pouch is known to consume fewer resources, resulting in a lower manufacturing cost. 

However, this low manufacturing cost of the pouch does not compromise its quality. The Stand Up Pouch is more complex than it looks. Apart from being made from slightly more rigid materials that allow it to stand independently, the Stand Up Pouch is manufactured through several layers of barrier material that perform different functions. When these layers come together to provide a durable and puncture-resistant film, its multiple layers can be classified into three main groups, each with specific functions. 

  • Outer Layer – Carries advertising which communicates a brand message and appeals to consumers. 
  • Middle Layer – A protective barrier that keeps the pouch’s content safe and fresh. 
  • Inner Layer – This most critical layer is food graded and is FDA approved to ensure that it is safe when coming into direct contact with a food product. It is heat-sealable to assure customers that the pouch has not been tampered with. 

Additional features such as zippers, spouts, top holes, and tear notches can also be customised in stand-up pouches for various packaging requirements. To learn more about Stand Up Pouches, please visit our blog.
