Five Reasons Why Barrier Bags are Right for Beef Jerky

Beef consumption in the United States stands at 67 pounds per person each year. Thirteen percent of this beef is processed meat, and beef jerky is a part of it. There are a variety of packaging options available for beef jerky. Barrier bags are one of them. They are made with several layers of laminate material fused together. These bags are an excellent method to package jerky. In this article, we will learn about the five reasons that make barrier bags the best packaging medium for jerky.

(a) Best materials

One-size does not fill all. This also applies to beef jerky packaging where the choice of materials in packaging depends on several factors. The factors include the method of transport, the climate of your area, and the tastes of your buyers. Based on these factors and your business objectives, we can suggest you the right materials for your packaging. The materials include clear, foil, and metalized films.

(b) Longer shelf-life

Beef jerky has a long shelf-life. This can be made even longer with secure packaging. A beef jerky bag can provide ample protection against vapors, odors, insects, and moisture to keep your jerky fresh for long.

(c) Cost – small and large businesses

Flexible pouches are a cost effective packaging medium. StandUpPouches.net can run as few as 5,000 bags. Alternatively, a business can order more than five million bags. This huge flexibility allows us to cater to small and large businesses in a way that is cost effective for both. StandUpPouches.net is the total lowest cost manufacturer of barrier bags for beef jerky.

(d) Unlimited designs – custom print

We have our own graphics department. Our designers can either create a unique professional design from scratch, or they can modify an existing design. In either situation, the choice in design is unlimited. A unique design helps build a brand and boost sales by attracting more customers.

(e) Guidance and assistance

StandUpPouches.net has a team of professional product managers to help you in every step of the way. They will hold your hand and guide you as little or as much you want. We have a proven process to bring your product to market faster. We assist you in material selection, design, marketing, and case studies. Our after-sales service is sans comparison.

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.
