)-- Northeast Packaging is encouraging food manufacturers to experience the quality and value of the company's customizable stand up pouches, available online at http://www.NEPack.com/products/stand-up-pouches-2/. A cost-effective alternative to cardboard food packaging, stand up pouches can be manufactured with a number of different features to suit a variety of needs. With domestic and international facilities, Northeast Packaging is able to provide custom flexible packaging options and offer them at industry-low prices.
"Stand up pouches offer a number of benefits over cardboard snack packaging and are the current trend in packaging. The pouches can be re-sealable, made to hang on a peg or stand free, and offer full front faced graphic exposure. As an added perk, the pouches are shipped flat for reduced warehousing and freight expense," said Stewart Braun, President and CEO of the packaging corporation.
Northeast Packaging offers its stand up pouches with a wide range of flexible features, beginning with its three bottom gusset options: round, K-Seal, and plow. Representing the most common style of stand up pouches, round bottom gusset packages feature gussets welded to the side walls along the gussets' edges and are recommended for light contents that weigh less than 1 lb.
Heavier products are better suited for food packaging equipped with K-Seal bottom gussets; here, seals on each side of the gusset connect to the inner walls at 30-degree angles to reduce the stress on the steals and provide additional volume. Plow bottom gusset stand up pouches are ideal for sugar, salt, and other granular products, as they are manufactured from a single piece of barrier film so that there is no seal.
For even greater flexibility, NEPack.com supports a number of additional options for its food packaging products. Clients can opt for a variety of closures, from resealable zipper closures to heat-sealed options to be applied after filling. Stand up packages can also be equipped with hang holes and handles for store display, or produced as wicketed bags for semi-automatic or automatic filling during the manufacturing process. For easy opening, NEPack.com offers both tear notches and laser scoring on stand up pouches, the latter assuring that the tear will progress in a straight line.
With core clients including Utz and Wise Foods, NEPack.com is a frequent provider of snack packaging, but can manufacture barrier films, stand up pouches, and other products for businesses in the pet food, horticulture, and pharmaceutical industries. The company is also well-versed in other areas of food packaging, including packaging for confectionery items.
