Pre-Made Pouches and Bags


Stand-Up Shelf Appeal and Ease of Use

Flexible packaging has gained significant market share on supermarket shelves during the past several years, with juice, sauces, and other products shifting away from rigid containers.

A major part of that shift is the popularity of pre-made, stand-up pouches, which provide food manufacturers a tremendously marketing-friendly format which sticks out on store shelves and helps generate sales. And even if pre-made bags aren’t designed to stand up – they definitely stand out.

Flexible pouches are also often more environmentally friendly than rigid containers – requiring less energy and resources to produce, and allowing for a greater evacuation of the product to the end user.

Flexibility for Manufacturers

The other crucial benefit of pre-made pouches is the flexibility they provide food manufacturers – particularly as they grow from smaller brands, and may be using a semi-automatic solution tied into a multi-head weigher or other filling machine.

The ability to fill a variety of different sized pouches with easy changeover in any given day provides a great deal of flexibility to adjust production on the fly when needed.

Because the pouches are already made, the use of pre-made bags also reduces the level of expertise needed to operate a machine. An entry-level employee can manage the infeed of bags and collection of filled pouches with relatively little training, while a form-fill-seal machine likely requires more extensive training.
