Features & Benefits

Stand up pouches are a versatile packaging option with fully customisable size and dimensions. Excellent for multiple use and refill applications. These pouches are suitable for various product types including liquids, dry goods and frozen free flow products. Using pouches to replace other packaging formats such as tin cans provides an opportunity to reduce packaging material by up to 85%. Snell Flexibles is a partner in the Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme which means that pouches are now fully recyclable in New Zealand and Australia.

Stand up pouches provide large printable faces for strong brand impact on the shelf. At Snell Flexibles we deliver crisp, on-brand, photographic quality imagery through gravure printing.

The stand up pouch is a modern, appealing pack that can be die cut to any shape or form. It can be fitted with a wide range of re-sealable/re- closable options including spouts, ziplock and velcro closures for consumer convenience and appeal. Replaces the single use pillow pack.

The stand up pouch is easily customisable and can be constructed using multiple film/laminate types to provide ‘fit for purpose’ barrier protection.
