Features of pouches
that enhance the value of products
Properly designed pouches are essential for a quality finished product. Pouches can be made of one or more layers of plastic film, aluminum foil, vapor deposited film or other materials depending on product type and shelf life requirements.
Package shapes and functions can greatly affect product value.
Pouches made with dedicated pouch making machines in clean room environments further increase value by producing superior quality pouches incorporating convenience features useful to consumers.
