This was the original pouch format and today it still remains the most used style of pouch. It is the most versatile and least expensive type of pouch and it can be used in almost any application that doesn’t require the pouch to stand up. It comes in a wide variety of different laminate structures for a range of applications including hot fill, retort, fresh chilled and frozen. It can be supplied with zippers and easy open features including laser scoring that gives a clean tear when the pack is pulled open. These pouches can be printed with up to 12 colours and can be supplied with a metalized finish.
