Candy Packaging

Whether you need a quick energy boost during a workout, your kids have earned a welcome reward, or you’re trying to win someone’s affections on Valentine’s Day, candy inevitably has a role to play. It’s no wonder that the average American consumes a staggering 25 pounds of candy every year. Candy makes for a great product to sell to a mass market — but first you have to think about certain important packaging considerations.

The first thing you must take into account is freshness. No one wants candy that has become stale through exposure to air or sticky through exposure to moisture. You can’t always know or guarantee how your retail points of sale will store and display your candy, either. All you can do is choose packaging that will protect the natural consistency, flavor, and looks of the product as effectively as possible.

You must also think about the visual impact of your candy packaging. A generic bag simply won’t do in the ultra-competitive candy market, no matter how brightly colored it may be. However, you can make your product stand out more effectively by choosing packaging that includes a clear window or panel. People love to see what they’re getting without having to trust a photo or other unreliable source. If your candy looks as inviting as it tastes, make sure to show it off.

Consider how your candy will appear when displayed on store shelves. A bag that simply lies flat may get buried beneath piles of other candies from your competitors. At the same time, you can’t depend on retailers to go to any special trouble to prop your product up vertically. Your best bet is to choose a stand up pouch that essentially serves as its own display board.

Benefits of Stand Up Pouch Packaging

Copious Bags stand up pouches offer numerous features and advantages to enhance your product line.

Stand up pouches are reusable and resealable for multiple uses — keeping the contents fresh and free from odors, moisture, and oxygen in an airtight environment. 

Heat sealed bags provide a tamper-evident finish that customers have come to expect. Heat sealing extends product shelf life, maintains freshness, and ensures food safety.

Consumers value convenience. Our stand up pouches are designed with easy to open tear-notches, resealable airtight zippers, and take up less shelf space than traditional rigid bottles, cans, and jars.

Stand up pouches provide an all-in-one package solution; no caps, lids, or inserts required. Flexible packaging typically costs three to six times less per unit than rigid packaging.

Stand up bags prominently show off your products on store shelves. The flat exterior surface provides ample space for branding and product information. Adds marketable value and distinction to your product line.

Our pouches are shipped and are stored flat — requiring far less warehouse space. In addition, the light-weight of stand up bags dramatically lowers shipping cost when compared to bottles, jars, cans, and other rigid containers.

Candy Packaging Bags

You don’t have to worry about oxygen or moisture damaging your candy when you rely on Copious Bags for your product packaging needs. Our barrier bags feature an airtight seal as well as a resealable zipper. This combination lets your candy stay fresh and dry all the way to the consumer, who can then retain freshness by zipping the bag closed between uses.

Our gusset bags make ideal candy containers. If you want to display your product with pride and give shoppers an idea of what they can expect, choose gusset bags with clear windows or completely transparent front panels. If you want to project an air of elegance and mystery, go with our black kraft paper. If you want to convey a homemade quality, consider our natural kraft paper.

Whichever look you select, your gusset bags will stand up proudly on their own, with no need for additional display support. Best of all, once your buyers try your candy as packaged in our airtight bags, the freshness of the product will keep them coming back for more.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right size Copious Bag® stand up pouch?

When choosing the right size bags for your products, it’s important to keep in mind the height and the volume of the product you are packaging.  The volume of your product plays a major role in choosing the right sized stand-up bag. For example, fine salt takes up less volume than whole coffee beans. The bulkier the product, the more space required. We suggest always going one size larger to accommodate your product. So this brings us to three measurements that might be helpful in finding the right size pouch for your product. Those three measurements are the fillable area, the area above the zipper.

The fillable area refers to the measurement of the bag below the zipper line to the bottom of the bag.The space above the zipper is often used to apply labels/stickers. It is also the area that can be heat sealed to preserve your product and to ensure a tamper-evident seal above the tear notches. It’s very important to remember that this area is included in the overall dimensions of the bags BUT it is not a fillable area. We have seen it so many times, where someone assumes that a bag size of 4″ x 6″ for example, will fit their product measuring 4″ x 5″ (sorry, but it’s not going to fit).

Our 1 oz stand-up pouch bags are specifically designed for single servings, and trial sizes.

Our 2 oz stand-up pouch bags are our most popular size and are designed for small items, or products.

Our 4 oz stand-up pouch bags are for medium products.

Our 8 oz stand-up pouch bags are our largest size and is ideal for larger bulkier products.

Are any of Copious Bags® pouches eco-friendly or recyclable?

We appreciate your concern about the environmental impact of our products.

Copious Bags® stand up pouches are an eco-friendly packaging alternative to traditional bottles, cans, and box packaging. Because they are made of lightweight materials and require 75-90% less material to produce, they reduce energy consumption and produce less CO2 emissions. The lightweight construction our bags is far more economical to transport than rigid packaging which saves on fuel cost and consumption. The bags ship flat and take up less space than jars, bottles, and cans. The bags are reusable and require no additional outer packaging for retail, therefore, they drastically reduce unnecessary waste and take up far less landfill space.

Our Matte Frosted Stand Up Bags and LoPro™ Clear Stand Up Bags are indeed 100% recyclable! Our Kraft Stand Up Pouch Collections are made with recyclable materials, however, due to the multi-layered construction of the bags, they are not classified as recyclable. And here’s why. Water is required to recycle paper, whereas, heat is required to recycle plastic and aluminum foil. Therefore, because the recycling methods for each material are different, our kraft bags are not classified as recyclable.

Also, please note that all of our bags meet all the requirements of the FDA for direct contact with food and they are BPA free. In general, stand up pouches saves more resources than it consumes.

Are Copious Bags® stand up pouches BPA free?

Yes. All of Copious Bags® products are BPA Free.
