Stand up pouches / Doypacks

Stand-up pouches are flexible, lightweight containers that stay upright thanks to a sturdy oval molded bottom. They are suitable for light products and liquids and are mainly used in the food industry.

Stand up pouches and doypack – the 8 benefits

Stand-up pouches, including the doypack, have many advantages. This form of packaging is often chosen for good reason. They are like this:

Thanks to the relatively thin film used to make stand-up pouches, the packaging weighs a lot less than, say, a can or glass jar.

Because the stand-up pouch or doypack largely molds to its contents and can be perfectly sized, it takes up minimal space.

Doypacks and stand-up pouches are made of a waterproof film that is fully sealable. This makes them ideal for the food industry, for both wet and dry products.

The film of stand-up pouches is not thick, so it can be easily cut open or, with the help of a notch, torn open.

When the contents of a doypack are unlikely to be consumed in one sitting, a resealable strip can be applied. This happens directly during the packaging process.

The film of stand-up pouches is strong, so it can handle quite a lot. Bumps, scrapes, falls, a doypack can easily withstand it and won’t break down.

Thanks to the small amount of packaging material required proportionally for stand-up pouches and doypacks, this packaging method is better for the environment than many other packaging methods.

Because stand-up pouches stand upright rather than on a shelf, consumers can immediately see the brand, contents and further details you want to display. Thus, they are the ideal packaging for optimal product presentation.

The difference between stand-up pouches and the doypack

With stand-up pouches, we also often refer to them as doypacks. It is actually a variant of it. In terms of appearance and properties, they are similar; you will notice little or no difference in the end result. Where the difference does lie is in the filling process.

With a doypack, we start with a roll of film that we still form into a stand-up bag ourselves before filling it. For this we use a special doypack machine.
