Stand up pouches are the fastest growing segment of flexible packaging as they offer a wide range of benefits and options in terms of branding, shelf appeal, functionality and sustainability. Suitable for many applications across different sectors such as ready meals, pet foods, fruit, snacking, confectionery and non-food, stand up pouches offer a light weight solution that make efficient use of shelf space and move economically through the supply chain.

FFP can supply stand up pouches in 3 different formats with varying features. All products are manufactured in-house and to order, on our own state-of-the-art pouch making machines.

K-Seal stand up pouches get their name from the bottom welding seams, which are designed in the shape of the letter “K”. The advantage of this format is the larger filling volume due to the sealed seams, which allow more product to be contained near the bottom of the bag. The seals on both sides rise at a 30-degree angle, taking the pressure off the sides of the pouches to allow for additional volume and reduce the risk of puncture or tear.

Features of the K-Seal stand up pouch

  • Widths between 100mm and 580mm
  • Heights between 100mm (175mm with zipper) and 520mm
  • Gusset sizes between 40mm and 90mm
  • No bespoke die required
  • Laser scoring and tear notches also an option for easy opening
  • Can come with features such as zips, press closures, hanging holes and rounded corners
  • Generally ‘K’ seal pouches expand less and so the same volume of product may require a slightly taller bag than the Doy Pouch
