The name, Stand-Up Pouch, aptly describes the package format. It is, in fact, a pouch that will stand up, and first gained popularity as the drink pouch (with a straw) for children. You will often see Stand-Up Pouch abbreviated to the industry term—SUP.
The stand-up pouch provides consumers with market-friendly features like zipper reclosure, tear notches, the versatility of hang hole features, strong shelf presence and an attractive billboard for label and graphics. Stand-up pouches are sold into a wide variety of markets including pet food, coffee, tea, natural products and specialty foods. Products such as crackers, cookies, nuts, dried fruit, candy, chips and powders are often seen in a stand up pouch.
