Retail Food Packaging


Flexibles are currently taking up the packaging industry by storm, with the retail foods sector being their biggest arena for unparalleled growth. And it’s justified—the advantages of flexible packaging over their rigid counterparts are numerous. With all the work you’ve put into perfecting the taste and quality of your food product, you deserve nothing less than the best when it comes down to your packaging.



In addition to maintaining a certain level of aesthetic appeal, your packaging has to attend to functional requirements as well. Remember, a flexible pouch is composed of multiple layers of engineered barrier films that are selected and combined specifically to cater to a product. At FlexiblePouches.com, we work to provide you with a customized flexible packaging solution that ensures:

  • Freshness and preservation of taste
  • Barrier from harmful elements including moisture, gas, light, and odor
  • Maximum shelf life
  • Protection from damage during handling, transit or storage
  • Aesthetic appeal based on customized artwork tailored to your brand




Obviously, flexible pouches come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Depending on what and how much of it you’re packaging, you may choose to go with a conventional stand up pouch, flat pouch, or a flat bottom pouch. Because flexible packaging delivers value and effectiveness when compared to rigid alternatives, many companies are making the switch. Virtually all retail food products can be packaged in a flexible pouch, including:

  • Baby Food
  • Baking Mix and Flour
  • Beef Jerky
  • Candy, Chocolate, and Sweets
  • Cereal and Granola
  • Cookies and Snacks
  • Dried Fruit & Nuts
  • Frozen Foods
  • Juices
  • Meat and Cheese
  • Popcorn (Popped & Kernels)
  • Salad Dressings, Sauces, and Soups
  • Sauces & Syrups (e.g. Honey)
  • Seasonings and Spices


Our manufacturing plant is ISO certified, and the films we use are food grade compliant and always exceed US FDA requirements. As with all pouches offered, FlexiblePouches.com allows you the ability to fully customize everything from the material, style, and graphics to the inclusion of any of the following features:

  • Re-closable Ziplocks
  • Closable Spouts
  • Tear Notches
