For many years now, stand-up pouches have continued to grow in popularity. They are one of the most utilized flexible packaging products. Here are some reasons why brands are switching from jars, containers, or boxes to stand up pouches:

  • Durability: They are made of strong laminated films, which help them keep their shape and withstand damage.
  • Impact: They offer a large amount of visual real estate for brands to make an impact with design.
  • Practicality: They provide easy portability and convenience for consumers with add-ons such as resealable zippers and tear notches.
  • Protection: They offer high barrier protection capabilities with the use of specialty films in production.
  • Sustainability: They can be made with environmentally friendly films, adhesives, and substrates.
  • Versatility: Their shape and size is completely customizable depending on the product you are packaging.

When they were first introduced, stand-up pouches were mainly used for food products like rice, nuts, or oats. After a while, they started to be utilized by coffee brands, to package alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and even for beauty products like bath salts and cosmetic sponges. Now, there is no limit to their use, and they’re used for an enormous range of products, from cannabis to clothing!
