Three Reasons Why Stand Up Bags Are Safe For Food Packaging

Most food businesses that have been packaging their food products in glass jars, glass bottles, or metal tins are skeptical towards custom printed stand up pouches. They mostly have the fear that the ink used in custom printing will mix with their product and spoil it, or worse, affect the health of the buyers. Let us show you how this skepticism has no base whatsoever.

StandUpPouches.net manufactures custom printed stand up bags which have been tested to package food safely. There are three strong reasons why you should put aside your anxiety about stand up pouches and start using them for your food and beverage packaging needs.

(1) FDA

The stand up bags offered by StandUpPouches.net are FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved. About 95 percent of your worries should have disappeared with this statement. After all, the FDA is the leading tester of food and food related products that are sold in the United States. These packages have been tested for food storage by the FDA which has found them perfectly safe for storing different kinds of foods and liquids.

(2) Water based inks

StandUpPouches.net uses water based inks in the custom printing of stand up bags. These inks are non-leaching. They do not react with the food product inside. They do not leave a layer of color on the packaged product. Moreover, water based inks are generally considered safer than dye-based inks which are stronger.

(3) Contaminants

Whatever worries you have can be put aside by this statement that our custom printed stand up bags have no contaminants. Contaminants can spoil your food and affect the sales of your product. Worse yet, contaminated food pouches can affect your brand, which is very difficult to rebuild. But when you are using stand up pouches from us, you can rest assured that no contaminants have found their way into the manufacturing of the pouches.

Our stand up pouches are made from food grade materials. The use of several barrier layers function as an effective guard against environmental factors which can spoil your product or decrease its shelf life. The pouches are sufficiently strong to protect your food from surrounding moisture, bacteria, and even mild physical blows during handling and transport. To sum it up, a lot of your inhibitions and worries about the use of stand up bags for your food products are without a real reason as these barrier bags are completely safe for packaging edibles.

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.
