5 Reasons Why Flexible Pouches Are Better Than Rigid Packaging

Spouted pouch packaging is gaining traction in the United States, and for good cause. Jars, canisters, bottles, and other traditional, inflexible containers are too uninteresting and inefficient to compete with the creative design of contemporary spouted pouches.

Below are five reasons why liquid spouted pouches, squeeze pouches, stand-up pouches, and other types of bags with spouts would be worth ditching rigid packaging containers.

1. Sustainability

Stand-up pouches dispense flat as well. While consumers can utilize reusable plastic materials to make rigid containers and flexible pouches, a portion of them will inevitably end up in landfills. Rigid containers take up a lot of room with empty space, whereas pouches with spouts save space in the disposal location and have a lower environmental impact. 

To maintain its shape, a rigid jug or bottle consumes a lot of plastic. With spouted pouch packaging, you can help the environment while also feeling good about your packaging choice because it uses far less plastic to accomplish the same task. Reduced plastic messaging appeals to today's environmentally responsible buyers as well.

2. Fits into the available space

With the efficient structure of spouted stand-up bags, you can fit more of your products on the shelf. Flexible packaging can flex and adjust to the space's requirements without wasting room that you might use to contain more of your product. It also looks fantastic on the user's shelf since the package shrinks when customers fully consume your product.

3. Savings on costs and space

By opting to use flexible spouted pouches, you can substantially lower the cost of packaging. This is due to the decreased use of plastic in production, the savings on storage space for shipping, the little space necessary to keep your inventory, and fuel costs.

A shipping truck can only hold so many large empty rigid containers. How many deliveries would you have to make before you have adequate packaging to complete all of your product's orders? When it comes to spouted pouches, the answer is straightforward: one. You can order tens of thousands of pouches at once and have them delivered to your business in a flat, space-saving shape that can be easily stored until needed.

4. Easy to use and very convenient for dispensing contents

Pouches with spouts are often far more user-friendly than a hefty and bulky plastic bottle.

Instead of a top-mounted spout, you can opt to attach a spigot spout to the bottom edge of the packing so that the customer may leave it where it is and simply pour out the product without ever lifting it up like in boxed wine and water coolers.

5. Easy to design and stands out on the retail shelf

Your worst enemy is having the same packaging as your competitor. When all your major competitors are stuck with almost identical packaging, do something new to make you stand out from the crowd. Jugs are plain and uninteresting, and they will end up making your product appear drab and identical to all the others.

Stand-up pouches with spouts are unique, forward-thinking, practical, and eco-friendly. It's also easy to cover the whole package with vivid and appealing laser-printed branding without having to go through a separate labeling process.
