Benefits of packaging your products in retort & microwavable pouches and doypacks

A popular food packaging option amongst retailers of microwavable goods are stand up pouches. In addition to providing high-visibility in a crowded retail environment, they are also highly flexible and cost-effective. The market for microwavable packaging is undoubtedly one of the key industries to truly define packaging-driven ‘convenience’ – time saving, ready-in-minutes, microwavable meals have become an increasingly popular choice amongst consumers.

What’s the most convenient packaging for microwavable food?

Thanks to being compact and durable, microwavable food pouches are the perfect choice for those who eat on the go – lightweight pouches can be easily slipped into a lunchbox or backpack to take to work, where the food can be prepared just as easily.

Microwavable pouches are a fantastic solution for removing lengthy meal prep – instead of waiting twenty minutes for a serving of rice to boil, consumers can have it pre-packaged and ready in a couple of minutes without compromising the taste! Moreover, since most pouches contain individual meals, it allows for groups of people to mix and match their meals without significantly stretching their preparation time.

 

How to make your microwavable food packaging stand out?

Packaging your ready meals in a pouch will not compromise other aspects of your business such as promotion and distribution. A combination of preserving the freshness of the contents, being lightweight enough to ensure safety of transportation and storage, as well as being easy to print on with creative designs which help you stand out in a competitive market, plastic pouches are created to take on the multidimensional requirements of contemporary food packaging.

Made from laminated PET and LLDPE food grade materials, our microwaveable pouches are produced to withstand extreme temperatures and high pressures without compromising the look of your products. Give your customers a preview of your products before they purchase with retort clear finish pouches or aluminium finish pouches, or opt for a bespoke microwaveable pouch complete with high-quality designed artwork, produced exclusively for your packaging.

Which is the most environmentally-friendly type of microwavable packaging?

Another reason for the growing popularity of microwavable pouches is as an alternative to thick plastic pots, and the effect this type of packaging has on the environment. Pouches and other flexible packaging types reduce the carbon footprint of your products by using less raw material than alternative packaging options. They are also more readily recycled and therefore more eco-friendly in their post-consumer stage, which makes them a favourite amongst environmentally conscious microwavable product retailers.

As eco-packaging specialists, we offer a number of bespoke pouch packaging options for a range of industries. Visit our printed & bespoke pouches page to discover more.
