Here is a short list of more advantages:

2.Flexible packaging is made from high-grade materials. StandUpPouches.net’s stand up bags use FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved food grade materials which are contaminant free and perfectly safe. Manufacturers can enhance this safety by including additional features such as ultraviolet protection.
3.Retailers are increasingly looking for products that show some creativity in merchandise. Flexible packaging offers exactly what they need – they can make a stand up pouch hang in a peg display or stand up on a store shelf.
4.Flexible packaging is reusable. Features such as zip locks, spouts, and resealable seals make usage more convenient. With consumers increasingly looking for more convenience, these features can provide manufacturers just what they need to increase sales.
5.Rotogravure printing is a new printing technique. Manufacturers can get very vivid and clear logos through this technique. Flexible packaging, being relatively new, combines very well with rotogravure printing.
6.The gusseted bottom in flexible packaging expands when a product is put into it. This is a useful feature for liquid food product manufacturers who want something flexible, but durable.
7.Finally, flexible packaging is more environment friendly as it does not take many resources to produce these pouches. At the same time, being green does not hurt the pockets of manufacturers.
