Made with a film structure of DuPont Teijin PET film and Dow PE resins, the novel pouch package design lies in a patented built-in straw. Because the straw is inside the pouch, it won’t get detached and lost and it’s protected from contamination.
Building in the straw during pouch forming reduces the processing passes increases automation and reduces production costs.
The first application for this package submitted by Hangzhou Zhengda Printing & Packaging Co. Ltd. was a soy milk in China but the extension into other beverage packaging is being explored. The innovative pouch won a Gold Award in the food category. —Pat Reynolds
