Fox Packaging™ Announces a Film Upgrade to Its Stand-Up Pouch Bag
- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
MCALLEN, TX - Off of the four year anniversary of the launch of its patented Stand-Up Combo® bag, Fox Packaging™ announced a film upgrade that will improve the stand up pouch bag’s performance and visual appeal. Bolstering its efforts to give customers sustainable options, Fox Packaging™ announced that it has improved the bag's bio-degradeability.
Previously, the bag was made from a proprietary polyethylene blend. Fox worked with a film partner to develop a recyclable alternative that is compatible with existing polyethylene recycle streams without diminished clarity, physical properties, or the waste that laminated or non-recyclable materials create. This film upgrade, the company noted, improves both the stand-up pouch bag’s performance and visual appeal.
“Fox Packaging is committed to a variety of sustainability initiatives both in our manufacturing processes and in the packaging solutions we offer,” said Aaron Fox, Executive Vice President, in a press release. “We understand our responsibility to help our customers provide sustainable solutions to shoppers and are always investing in those efforts. This new and improved pouch bag film has been a top priority for us and we are pleased to finally unveil it at the United Fresh Show this month.”
The patented Fox Stand-up Combo® bag is constructed from a combination of poly and mesh for optimal breathability and ample printing space. It also features a functional, flat bottom for upright display. Ranging in size from 1–5 lbs, the patented Stand-up Combo bag is available in 12 colors of non-abrasive mesh and a convenient zip closure. Fox’s state-of-the-art surface flexo printing process produces a high dynamic range of colors to help customers’ branding stand out on the store shelf.
