The dried, salted snack known as jerky commands enormous popularity among everyone from soldiers and astronauts to everyday citizens. This segment of the snack food business has grown steadily over the past several years, with no signs of stopping, in both the U.S. and European marketplaces.
But even though the whole point of drying and salting meat is to keep it well-preserved for long journeys, the long journey from your manufacturing facility to the store shelves — and, finally, to your customer’s pantry — requires some extra care and attention.
Pouches have traditionally served as the packaging of choice for mass-market jerky products. These pouches, which may be constructed of paper, plastic, or a combination of the two, protect the jerky from air and moisture outside the package. However, any oxygen left in the bag from the initial packaging process can still allow fungi and bacteria to damage the jerky. The addition of a small packet of oxygen absorber can remove this threat.
Jerky’s appearance can do much to sell it to your target shoppers, especially those who want to know exactly what they’re buying. Robust, seasoned strips of meat can look highly appealing, so you’ll naturally want to showcase your product’s appetizing looks. You can achieve this by making use of transparent windows, or even entirely transparent pouches, that put the product proudly on display.

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.

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?
