Snack Packaging

“It’s snack time!” When people of all ages hear that exciting announcement, they come running to enjoy their favorite between-meal treats. This behavior is practically universal; an astonishing 97 percent of the U.S. population reports snacking at least once a week, with 57 percent of them snacking at least once a day.

That audience represents a gold mine, not only for dentists, but also for snack makers. If you have some delicious goodies to sell to this enthusiastic audience, you need to make sure that the packaging reflects the good times to be had from your product.

Snack packaging requires a good deal of forethought and care. First and foremost, you must make sure that the freshness and deliciousness of the product is preserved for as long as it sits on a store shelf.

Packaging that allows humidity and outside air to penetrate it, for instance, may result in chips that have lost their crispness or cheese puffs that smell more like mold than cheese. You also need to consider the overall presentation provided by the packaging.

Ordinary snack bags and boxes can easily get lost in the surrounding “noise” of a dozen other, similar packages from your competitors. Snack packaging that stands up on its own, without the need for any special display help, can also help your product stand out from the crowd.

Last but not least, what image do you want your snack packaging to convey? You may want to appeal to the down-home, fresh-baked goodness crowd with a simple, natural paper look. Or you might capture the imaginations of luxury buyers with a sleek black, transparent, or frosted package.

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.

Why stand up pouches are perfect for snacks?

Keep your brand name continuously on the minds of your customer. The reusable feature results in a huge reduction of waste compared to traditional single-use packaging.

Package your snacks in a convenient, airtight zipper bag that provides barrier protection & keeps your product fresher longer, while dramatically extending the shelf life.

Water resistant packaging is ideal for snack products, to prevent the product from coming in contact with moisture. Choose from our water resistant and food-grade packaging options.

Snack Packaging Bags

There’s no more reliable and attractive way to package your snacks than in our Copious Bags. We make our bags out of high-quality materials that resist the elements, allowing for safe long-term storage that keeps your treats fresh and enticing.

They’ll stay that way, too, thanks to the zippered tops that let your buyers reseal their treats for future snack times. This extra touch can make all the difference in whether your customers buy from you again!

You’ll also love the other design features of our snack packaging bags. For instance, we employ a gusseted design that lets the package stand up on the shelf unaided. This presentation feature keeps the front label front-and-center in your audience’s line of vision.

As for the bag material, you can choose the option most likely to appeal to your target market. We offer both natural-colored kraft paper and elegant black kraft paper, each of which conveys its own message to different audiences.

We also offer transparent or frosted recyclable plastic packaging if you’d like to tempt shoppers with your product’s bright colors or fun shapes. Want the best of both worlds? Consider a kraft paper package with a transparent window for top-quality presentation inside and out.

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.
