Difference Between Pouch Filling and Bagging

A pouch and a bag are both forms of flexible packaging commonly utilized by various industries and retailers. While there is technically no substantial difference between the two, the main distinguishing factor lies in their size.

Smaller packages are typically referred to as pouches, while larger ones are often labeled as bags. It doesn’t matter whether the contents are in liquid or powder form – the classification is primarily based on dimensions. In summary, the disparity between a pouch and a bag resides solely in their size, with the former being associated with smaller dimensions and the latter with larger dimensions.

Lot Codes and Labeling

Packages are marked with lot codes and expiration dates through the use of high-speed batch coding equipment. This equipment is responsible for imprinting each individual unit with the necessary information to ensure proper tracking and product integrity.

Additionally, to ensure the quality and integrity of packages, periodic checks are conducted on the packages’ seals to guarantee their consistency and strength. Furthermore, we provide the option for third-party laboratory services, allowing you to have your product tested before it is introduced to the market.

Our comprehensive approach offers a turn-key solution, as we also offer aggressive sourcing for high-quality printed stand-up pouches that can be efficiently utilized on our stand-up pouching equipment.
