Pouches & Bags
FFP offers a full range of Pouches & Bags
Bags and Pouches are the fastest growing segment of flexible packaging. They offer numerous benefits and options in terms of branding, shelf appeal, functionality and sustainability and are now seen in more sectors than ever before. These include high temperature applications, where the consumer cooks or heats the product in the packaging.
Across the retail environment, stand up pouches give dynamic shelf appeal to brands in categories as diverse as ready meals, pet foods, fruit, snacking and confectionery with brand owners valuing the full-face branding, efficient use of shelf space and ease of use throughout the supply chain. Retort Pouches are also being increasingly used as a lightweight alternative to the more traditional canning methods for products with a longer shelf life, again presenting numerous benefits to the brand owner.
FFP can offer a full range of pouches and bags for all market sectors. All products are manufactured in-house and to order, on our own state-of-the-art pouch making machines.
Sustainable Pouches & Bags
Addressing the issue of recyclability in packaging, FFP have developed FFPE, an all PE packaging laminate that is 100% recyclable by recycling with carrier bags at larger supermarkets, as classified by OPRL. This is a huge step forward in sustainable flexible packaging as it can also be supplied with high barrier, opening up the potential applications to many sectors and providing consumers with an immediate and viable solution to recycle their packaging.
FFPE can be gas flushed, is strong, flexible and lightweight, providing an exciting alternative for companies looking for a recyclable solution whilst still maintaining functionality and creating vibrant shelf-appeal. It is available in reel form, as stand-up pouches, pre-made bags and sachets.
FFP recognised the desire within the industry to move packaging towards a lighter, yet robust solution and we responded by investing significantly in our pouch making capability. We now have two pouch making machines which has substantially bolstered capacity enabling us to respond to market demand.
