Meeting consumer demand for portable, resealable packaging, Clear Lam Packaging Inc. has worked closely with Stonyfield to develop special packaging films for a new yogurt pouch that answers the demands of today’s consumers. The new yogurt pouch line is designed for on-the-go enjoyment and includes YoBaby, YoTot and YoKids yogurt-branded pouches. A recent report from Freedonia forecasts that demand for all standup pouches will grow at 6.5 percent annually and represent 27.2 percent of the market by 2023.
“Grab-and-go snacking is fueling demand for portable packaging while consumers gravitate to organic, nutrition-rich products,” says James Sanfilippo, president and CEO of Clear Lam Packaging Inc. “Stonyfield has been at the forefront of these trends with their natural, organic foods for babies, toddlers and kids. Clear Lam is proud to support this new product launch with a lightweight and durable packaging solution that meets real consumer needs while delivering sustainability benefits.”
Designed for consumer convenience, the new yogurt pouch packaging films produced by Clear Lam are used to assemble a pouch with a fitment on a horizontal form-fill-seal machine. The film material was selected for its ability to support a 60-day refrigerated shelf life, run on high-speed processing equipment and absorb distribution abuse. The material’s stiffness also helps the finished packages stand up straight on store shelves for better merchandising. Critical to this packaging application was ensuring that each package was properly formed, with strong side seals and tight fitment seals, while maintaining very high line speeds.
