Liquid Pouches for

Pouches are an innovative packaging concept designed to extend the shelf life of liquid products such as wine, fruit juices, edible oils, and detergents. Branded as Pouch-Up®, our pouches are made from films which have excellent oxygen barrier properties to preserve the liquid inside, ensuring the contents stay uncontaminated by the air outside. Liquid is dispensed through a high performance Vitop® compact tap, which prevents air entering the packaging during dispensing. The pouch and tap work together to prolong the shelf life before and after the pack is opened.

Pouch-Up® is unbreakable, yet extremely lightweight, with a very low carbon footprint in comparison to glass and PET Bottle packaging. Pouch-Up® is free standing with a single gusset on its base or a double gusset on the base and on the top. They can be high quality printed to attract consumer attention with color and graphics in the retail environment. They offer maximum customer convenience as they are easy to carry, easy to store, easy to use, and easy to dispose of. We also supply semi-automatic and automatic filling machinery to offer a totally integrated solution for Pouch-Up®.
