Spouted pouches (also known as fitment pouches) are becoming more prevalent across many industries due to advances in flexible packaging materials and an increasingly wide variety of convenient spouts & fitments available. Many products once limited to rigid packaging are now excellent candidates for spouted pouches.

Spouted Pouches vs. Rigid Packaging

Spouted pouches provide many benefits when compared to rigid packaging.

Spouted pouches:

  • Allow for near total evacuation of the product. (Rigid containers can leave 6 - 14% of product in packaging, while pouches can evacuate up to 99.5% of the product.)
  • Are conveniently lighter and more portable.
  • Provide shelf impact that differentiates your products from the rows of rigid packaging currently on shelves, giving you a competitive advantage.
  • Use approximately 60 percent less plastic than rigid plastic bottles.
  • Require approximately 50 percent less energy to produce.
  • Are much more space efficient and require less area to store in warehouses.
  • Generate less CO2 emissions during production.
  • Produce significantly less landfill waste.
  • Require fewer trucks for transportation—reducing fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
  • Provide increased printable surface area to present attention-grabbing graphics that resonate with consumers.
