Stand Up Pouches - Product Packaging Done Right

Inside Report: 3 Questions Decision Makers Are Afraid to Ask Pertaining To Flexible Retail Packaging

Posted by David Marinac

I’ve been in this business for over 30 years and I’ve been fortunate to have seen some very cool trends in food marketing come and go.  I’ve seen paperboard packaging evolve from down and dirty plain corrugated bins holding plastic bags to full litho color wrapped boxes as well as folding cartons and clamshells and now flat bottom flexible box bags and large capacity spouted stand up pouches for liquids that are made to replace gallon jugs.  The point is, food marketing is a moving target and pertains not only to the product itself but the consumer and just as important to the retailer.  You can have a great product that consumers want but if you haven’t satisfied the major retailers or hit their price points, you are in trouble.  Or, if you have a great relationship with retailers but have packaging that is clunky and not consumer friendly, your chances of retail success are limited.

Food Marketing: The Best Way To Package Beef Jerky

Posted by David Marinac

Beef jerky ain't what it used to be.  Once merely a niche food consumed mostly by hikers, backpackers and other "outdoorsy" types, beef jerky (not to mention its more exotic cousins) has gone mainstream.  Now considered a healthy snack because it's an excellent source of protein for those on the run, behind the wheel or at their desks, beef jerky ranks among the most convenient of snack foods enjoyed by Americans.  For that reason, food marketing specifically for beef jerky is an essential component of any brand's success. Using the right barrier bags for beef jerky will go a long way to not only protecting the precious contents but standing out on a retail store shelf.

Stand Up Food Bags and Custom Made Samples

Posted by David Marinac

Food packaging comes in virtually all shapes and sizes, from 4 oz. cans of sliced olives to 5 lb. bags of rice and countless other examples, each more or less appropriate for the foods they contain.

There is one type of packaging that not only exceeds these standards but offers other features as well: Stand up food bags.

Posted by David Marinac

Flour is one of those products most of us don't use too frequently. When we do need to use it, however, it better be on the shelf and it better still be good, no matter how long the half-empty package may have been sitting on the pantry/kitchen cupboard shelf.
