Preference for aseptic packaging rather than metal cans increases the demand for stand-up pouches

Metal cans for food and beverages are gradually losing the battle against flexible stand-up pouches as consumers reject metal cans in favor of pouches. The preference for stand-up pouches over metal cans is diverse, with some metal cans notoriously difficult to open and possibly the heaviest form of packaging. Moreover, it makes up a large portion of the carbon footprint. Also, metal cans cannot be changed in shape or design, and they look the same when lined up on shelves. Additionally, metal can also be considered obsolete and harmful to the environment, and with the help of stand-up pouches, the chances of spills are also greatly reduced. In addition, these bags are becoming more popular as they are made by mixing multiple layers of plastic, which allows for newer printing and design techniques. The use of this packaging technology helps sterilize the package and food separately, then combine and seal them in a sterile environment. To invest in that innovation, India-based packaging company Uflex Ltd. has installed a wide range of high-speed bag-making machines to produce three-sided seal bags, zip-lock bags, and stand-up pouches.
