Stand-Up Pouches

400 Series  |  425 Series  |  430 Series

The name, Stand-Up Pouch, aptly describes the package format. It is, in fact, a pouch that will stand up. 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 and come in a wide array of colors and structures. The stand-up pouch is one of the most popular formats in the market place today.

Features and Options


Located below the tear notch, the zipper is a "must have" feature in certain markets because it's convenient and user friendly.


Tear Notch

Consumers use the tear notch to rip open the top of the pouch.


Bottom Gusset: Pouches are made with one of the two gusset styles:

Plough Bottom

The plough bottom is made from one piece of material that has been folded and sealed into the bag shape. Because this style is made from one piece, it can hold more product weight. The plough bottom is common for products weighing more than 2 lbs.

Inserted Bottom

The inserted bottom has a "lip," which makes the pouch stand up by serving as the center of gravity. With the inserted bottom, this style is great for products that weigh less than 1-2 lbs. If the product is too heavy, the pouch may lean or fall over.

Constructed of high barrier foil and/or clear laminates, the PBi 400 Series stand-up pouches protect your product from oxygen and moisture. We recommend the PBi 400 Series Stand-Up Pouch for products such as coffee, nuts, flavored teas, and other products that need higher protection against oxygen and moisture.
