What is a Flat Pouch?

An exciting tea and coffee packaging solution for packing smaller quantities of product. A flat pouch is sealed at 3 sides,and it is flat, meaning that it has no side or bottom gusset. This makes the bag a good choice for small or lightweight items.

For convenience hang holes can be added to the bag, allowing retailers to display the bag frontally suspended on display hooks or horizontally stacked on shelves.The lightness and compact size of this bag makes it great for having the choice of sending the orders to customers directly via postal delivery. If easy resealability of the flat pouches is needed, a zipper can be added.

Flat pouches with and without zipper are great for samples, portion-size bags, and for special promotions.

The benefits of using flat pouches

Flat Pouches have some great qualities that makes them able to provide opportunities for a product that other packaging options can’t fulfill.    

A growing trend through the last few years is the act of ‘unboxing’. In an analysis by Packaging Gateway they were told by Lifestyle Packaging that the trend of ‘unboxing’ online has become a crucial part of brand building.  

Unboxing refers to the act of unpacking products in a video that is later uploaded to social media. In the video the product will be shown and explained in detail.   

The Flat Pouch is ideal for this trend as it can easily used for compiling a taster selection of a business’s products. The size of the pouches is key as they can easily be fitted into a larger packaging to then be ‘unboxed’ from.  

The ‘unboxing’ trend is an active way that consumers can support a business that they like. This is even more the case for small and local owned business. Striving towards obtaining this support can therefore help your business.  

The Flat Pouch is a compact packaging choice that delivers opportunities for connection with your consumers. Companies with a need for single or limited size portion servings or for sample packaging should use a flat pouch.
