In recent years, the standing pouches have begun to take over the shelves of retailers. Almost every type of food products can be found in the stand-up pouches – sugar, coffee, pet food and even tuna fish have migrated from traditional packaging methods to more modern and more sophisticated, stand up pouches.

And now the beverage makers are getting in on the action. Sports drinks, juice, and winemakers have all been experimenting with alternative packaging methods. What is of limited use in plastic or glass bottles and aluminium cans can now be packaged in a unique stand-up pouch made especially for liquids. You can also buy clear stand up pouches at for your business needs.

But before making a final decision on the bag spout, you must ask yourself the following questions:

1. What ingredients are in your products? The most spouted pouch is made of food-grade, FDA approved ingredients, but if your product is very acidic or oily, you may need a substrate that is thicker or stronger.

2. Because the bags are made of high-quality laminated film, you can custom print your package however you like. Here one laminated film is part of the printed stand up pouch. It is "trapped" between other layers to protect the print and make sure it can not be scratched or damaged in any way. 

3. Where do you want to drain into? It can be in one corner of the package or in the middle. Some companies opt for one or the other and then factor in this position into the graphic design on their package. The result can be very eye-catching and can really stand out in the retail shelves. You can also choose from various sizes and types of spouts, the most common being 6mm, 9mm, 18mm, 23mm and straw sizes. Your supplier can help you choose what is best for you.
