Soup in the stand up pouch
The winter is here and with it the soup season. Who doesn’t love a hearty, warming and nutritious bowl of soup on a cold winter’s night, right? As you might have noticed, more and more products are now packaged in the stand up pouch, especially liquids such as soups, sauces, curries. That’s because food manufactures (and retailers) have identified the benefits of using stand up pouches instead of the old metal cans.
The pouches, for example, are cheaper to transport than heavy cans, they are also easier to open requiring no tools such as a can opener. They can also be resealed with a zip lock to maintain freshness. Stand up pouches are also great to take on camping or fishing trips, or perfect for work lunch.
Stand up pouch vs canned food
Another great reason to buy your products in a stand up pouch rather than in a can is the that you can return to the product numerous times without worrying that it will become contaminated or stale. The zip lock pouch also allows the consumer to push the air out in the package prior to re-sealing it. This creates a space-saving pouch that is easy to fit anywhere – in the fridge, backpack, pantry, etc.
Some pouches can also be microwaved for the perfect quick dinner or lunch! Plus the contents taste better from a pouch than a metal can.
