The First Steps to Properly Package a Liquid Product in Stand Up Pouch Bags

Pouch bags are suitable for all sorts of dry foods, pet food, and other products. They are also a fantastic means of packaging and selling liquid products that range from salad dressing to motor oils, and other liquids. To get the stand up packaging process started for any type of liquid, we ask the following questions:

  • We need to know what type of product needs packaging: This gives us a heads up on the types of materials, design, and barrier films needed for the bags.

 

  • How will the product be put into the bag?- Will the liquid be put into the bag through a spout or a void? We need to know this information to properly design the bag.

 

  • What will the temperature of the product be during filling: Is the liquid going to be frozen, room temperature, or hot? This needs to be factored in when designing the packaging. We will also need to know how long the product will have that hot or cold temperature.

 

  • Where will the spout go?: Will the spout go in the center of the bag or on the side?

 

  • What type of spout: There are different types of spouts that can be used and this will affect the cost of the bags. We can suggest some spouts, use the ones you send, or take care of this part of the process.

 

  • Does the bag need a clear window?: Do you want clients to see the liquid product or does the bag need to be opaque to protect it from light.

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.
