Soup Packaging Using Stand Up Bags

Soup in Stand Up PouchesFor many people, soup is comfort food.  There are times when nothing other than a hot bowl of soup will bring warmth to a day.  With an annual sales volume of over $4 billion, there are a lot of bowls of soup to be sold.  Soup packaging is critical in ensuring that the customer leaves the store with your product.

What does soup packaging require?  If we are speaking of soup in liquid, form, several things.  Obviously, the packaging must be strong and durable.  It must be easy to open, easy to use and should enable the customer to save any leftovers.  It should also store conveniently, in the cupboard or fridge.

For the producer, soup packaging should be cost-effective, attractive, customizable, simple to package, ship and display, and should stand out from the competition.

Stand up bags, also known as stand bags or stand pouches, are perfect for soups, sauces and stews.  The strength and durability of the stand up pouch will protect the contents while merchandizing them beautifully. 

Soup Packaing using Stand Up BagsStand up pouches are made from multiple layers of scientifically designed film that will protect the soup from oxygen, light, odor, moisture, and puncture.   Available with spout openings, stand up bags allow for convenient pouring and resealing.  Stiff and stable, they do what their name says they do:  Stand up on the shelf or in the refrigerator.  And, at the end of the day, there is no messy can (or dangerous can top) to deal with.

For soup makers, stand up bags provide many features that benefit marketing and, of course, the bottom line.  Stand up bag soup packaging has a wide face and back of the pouch which offers a
large amount of room to apply a label or for customized printing in up to 10 colors.  Other available  features include hang holes and even gas rSoup Packaging in Stand Up Pouchelease valves.

Stand up pouch soup pouches provides you with a unique and highly effective way to display your product on the shelf because it stands out while it stands up.  They ship easily and travel well.

Finally, stand up bag soup packaging has minimal landfill effect and is, in fact, recyclable.  A comfortable closing thought about a comfort food.  Interested in using stand up bags for soup?

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.
