Questions and answers to our stand-up and flat-bottom pouches

Our diverse range of materials allow you to use our stand-up and flat-bottom pouches for many different products. We offer packaging solutions for various foodstuffs such as ground coffee, coffee beans, tea, sweets, chocolate, snacks, baked goods, cereal, granola, health food, food supplements and much more. You can of course also fill our stand-up pouches with other products such as cosmetics, pet food, textiles and accessories. However, our pouches are unsuitable for meat, liquids, cheese, baby food, chemical detergents, medications and solvent-based or organic-based cosmetics.

If you want to pack products containing essential oils in our bags, you should do a filling test before to be sure. Essential oils are often included in aromatic substances which are used in tea, for example. Partially, these consist of so-called "terpenes" which can damage plastics. Depending on the concentration in the oil, it can attack plastics to a greater or lesser extent. To make sure that your product is safely packed, please talk to our sales team before ordering.
That’s no problem at all. We'll be happy to send you a free sample kit which contains our different materials and sizes. All samples are printed with different designs to give you an idea of our digital printing quality. You can easily request our sample kit in the shop by sending us your contact details. We are unfortunately unable to send samples featuring your own design.

Packiro is an active participant in the area of circular economy with sustainable packaging solutions. All of our innovative material structures are as sustainable as possible while offering maximum protection for various products. We currently produce 100% recyclable, transparent and metallised mono plastic structures as well as “high protection” and “natural” paper. Both of our paper based stand-up and flat-bottom pouches are made of FSC®-certified paper and other controlled material. Our natural paper (“Nils”) is even free from plastic films and zippers. This means it can be fully recycled in the paper bin.
