Frozen Food Packaging Suppliers Like Standup Bags

frozen food packaging suppliers Those in the frozen food industry are faced with different challenges than those who provide packaging for other food products.  Although frozen food packaging must protect contents from vapor, odor, moisture, pests, air and/or light (depending on the nature of each product), it must be able to do so in what  we can safely call a "harsher environment".  Frozen food packaging suppliers are, therefore, well-served when using stand up pouches.  

Multiple layers of special, food-grade film are laminated together to form a barrier pouch that will not only protect its contents, it will help extend the product "best by" date by sealing in freshness, flavor and nutritional properties.  Puncture-resistant, a stand up pouch can withstand the sharp edges that often result when some food products are frozen. 
Known, among other things, as custom print bags, Mylar® pouches and stand up bags, stand up pouches provide frozen food packaging suppliers several options for branding products.

The wide front and back pouch barriers easily accommodate product labels and promotional stickers, custom printing tailored to exact specifications (in up to 10 colors), the use of clear film in the construction of the pouch barrier, or any of these options.  

Products packaged in stand up pouches will stand out from the competition because they'll stand up on the shelf in the store's frozen food section.  When necessary, optional round or sombrero-shaped hang holes can also be provided, thereby offering a second display option.
Because they stand up on the freezer, stand up pouches store conveniently.  Also convenient is the available tear notch which makes initial product opening a snap.  Finally, the optional zip lock closure system provides extra protection and further functions to preserve the product's shelf life.  Trust your frozen food packaging suppliers for guidance as to what options you need for your particular product.  

Stand up pouches are also environmentally friendly.  Although consisting of multiple layers,frozen food packaging suppliers each pouch requires up to 12 percent less material to make than most other packaging bags.  This means that the pouches weigh less and, therefore, require less fuel per unit to ship.  It also means that less material is generated after disposal.  And, of course, most stand up pouches are recyclable.

What LEGO’s Sustainable Packaging Teaches Us About Overseas Innovation

Since 1949, children across the globe have fawned over tiny, plastic, interlocking bricks.

LEGOs are a not only a classic toy but a staple in many households. Many kids beg their parents to take them to the majestic LEGOLAND, an amusement park where all their wishes and dreams could come true.

Why Nestlé, Unilever & PepsiCo are Banning Oxo-degradable Plastic Packaging

Originally marketed as an eco-friendly packaging material, new evidence regarding the potentially negative impact of oxo-degradable plastics has led a number of companies and governments to restrict their use.

More than 150 companies and global organizations, including Nestlé, Unilever and PepsiCo, have recently endorsed a total ban on the material in light of its potentially negative environmental impact.

Oxo-degradable plastic packaging, which includes select plastic pouch bags, is often marketed as a solution to plastic pollution because it claims to degrade into harmless residues within a period ranging from a few months to several years. However, oxo-degradable plastics do not degrade into harmless residues, but instead, fragment into tiny shards of plastic that actually contribute to plastic pollution.

Often, consumers think that because a material is biodegradable, it can be composted or even littered on the ground, because, it is thought, the material will break down into nothing over time. This actually ends up leading to an increase in pollution, since consumers don’t end up recycling or repurposing the material, and misconceptions about how the plastic will degrade leads them to end up putting it back into landfills.

What is important to note in this case is that although oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable, being biodegradable does not necessarily mean that a material is eco-friendly. Although these plastics do break down over time, the tiny pieces they break down into are still plastics that contribute to pollution — they do not degrade into nothing or into another usable substance.

For companies looking to make the switch to sustainable packaging, it is important to consider that sustainable packaging does not necessarily mean biodegradable packaging, and vice versa.

Why New FDA Guidelines Could Bring Big Changes to Pet Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are demanding transparency and accountability from all types of products, and pet food is no exception.

Greater scrutiny over pet food ingredients, and an increasing demand for responsibility, sustainability and complete transparency from pet food manufacturers is driving change within the industry. As the consumer demand for “clean” pet food labeling evolves as a major topic within the world of pet packaging, FDA guidelines are shifting.
