Are Stand Up Bags Good for Candy Packaging?

Candy Packaging in Stand Up BagsEven after growing up, we all have some traces of our childhood left in us. Our love for candies proves that. Who doesn’t want to gorge on their favorite treat? This deliciously sweet (and sometimes sour) candy needs to be packaged with special care to ensure that you don’t find it stale. There are certain fears that nag us while buying a packet of candies. The novel way of packaging candies in stand up bags has taken care of these nagging issues. Let us discuss what these fears are and how stand up pouches can take care of them.

Fear of stale candies
It is really disappointing when you open the packet of candies and find that moisture and dust have found their way inside the packet. Stand up pouches make sure that the probability of such occurrence is brought down to zero. Stand up bags available at StandUpPouches.net are specially manufactured using multiple layers of barrier films to ensure that the contents stay the way they are the time of packaging, even after prolonged storage. Barrier packaging keeps the candies isolated from odor, sunlight, moisture, and dirt. One more added advantage of stand up pouches is that they are manufactured using FDA approved materials which ensure that the contents remain contamination free.

Fear of breaking the candy jar
Traditionally, candies have been packaged in glass jars. One fall and they can land in a scattered mess on the floor along with shards of broken glass. There is no such issue with stand up bags as they are tear resistant, puncture resistant, and unbreakable. So even under rough handling conditions, you can be sure that your candies will remain protected. Stand up pouches are available in different sizes and combinations of barrier films depending on the type of candy.

Fear of leaving the jar open
When kids take candy from the glass jar, they don’t usually close the jar because their tiny hands cannot screw the lid tightly. This allows moisture to seep in and ruin the candy. This problem can be resolved by opting for stand up pouch bags fitted with zip locks. The heavy duty zip seal ensures that kids can close the packet easily. The zip seal also keeps the freshness locked in so the contents stay fresh and delicious.

With these fears gone, you can walk into the market and buy your favorite candy without any hesitation. Just make sure that they are packaged in stand up pouches.

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.
