How Groundbreaking Food Packaging Design Helped Steviva Grow & Expand

Steviva Dry Food Packaging in Custom Printed Pouches

Steviva Brands is one of the largest leading manufacturers of stevia-based sweeteners — a product the company introduced to the U.S. market well before it was FDA-approved and became a staple in households, bakeries, cafes, and restaurants.

Steviva not only pioneered a product, it also distinguished itself by embracing stand up pouches for sugar alternatives — a packaging style U.S. consumers see growing and expanding across a wide range of industries but was once relatively new to American markets.

Steviva Custom Printed Pouches Proof

While countries like China, Australia, and New Zealand have seen the widespread use of flexible packaging for CPG products, Steviva was an early adopter in our neck of the woods. The brand recognized lightweight, recyclable stand up pouches for sugar alternatives were an eco-friendly solution that aligned well with the company's values and commitment to producing and distributing clean-label, healthy, natural products.

The company has been a long-time client of StandUpPouches.net and has used custom printed pouches for its extensive line of all-natural sweeteners for several years. The brand recently launched a new store and announced a global expansion to meet growing demand for all-natural, clean-label sweetening systems.

To prepare for this boom in business and the changes that naturally go along with it, Steviva made an investment in high-quality photography for its custom printed pouches, as well as professional performance material.

Steviva made the smart, strategic move not to rush the process of improving upon its dry food packaging or launching a new store and visually stunning web presence. The results have helped the company consistently reach new customers and solidify its position as a global leader in the natural sweetener market.

Industry trends point to a move away from sugar — as evidenced by the FDA’s announcement of changes coming to its Nutritional Label requirements — which place Steviva in a position for continued growth as consumers focus more on their health and wellbeing and seek out brands that provide natural, healthy alternatives. Steviva Founder and CEO Thom King noted that the changing FDA label requirements from major and mid-market manufacturers has driven an onslaught of new business. As such, Steviva responded by increasing its research and development capabilities, along with the production capacity of its clean-label sweeteners.

Changing demands can come from all sides (consumers, clients, retailers, and even the FDA), and brands have to be able to pivot efficiently to keep up. Steviva wisely focused on increasing the professional quality of its food packaging design to market its new store, new manufacturing and distribution centers, new headquarters and active role as a pioneer, innovator, and leader in natural, eco-friendly food products and solutions.

Steviva has embraced innovative flexible packaging, such as a spouted pouch with handle for dry food packaging, custom printed stand up pouches for sugar alternatives, and custom printed pouches that feature professional photography and crisp graphics. King and the Steviva team made a conscious decision to choose product packaging that helps maintain the health of the planet as they balance their commitment to consumer and environmental wellbeing. 

Whether your brand is introducing new additions to your product line, expanding production, filling a need in new markets, or suddenly experiencing a boom in orders, excellent food packaging design and retooling your custom printed pouches can help market and promote your product.

Partnering with packaging experts who can solve any unexpected problems and provide hot-rush options or has a solid hold-and-run program in place in absolutely crucial. We’ve maintained a long and lasting partnership with Steviva — a successful, growing brand that understands the importance of cohesion between product, brand image, and packaging and works thoroughly and strategically to meet emerging trends and changing demands.

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.
