Glenroy is launching the first premade VersaPouch solution at PACK EXPO International 2016, taking place from November 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

VersaPouch is an inverted standup pouch utilizing a patented closure developed by AptarGroup. The first premade version of VersaPouch was made possible by Glenroy's proprietary premade pouch converting technology. Providing a cost-effective alternative to existing form-fill-seal inverted pouches, the premade inverted pouch doesn't require the capital outlay of a new machine. Reductions in package and product scrap waste and reduced downtime can also be achieved when choosing premade pouches over form-fill-seal alternatives.

The VersaPouch solution provides optimal functionality and convenience for consumers. The ready-to-dispense, gravity-fed package eliminates the need for utensils when dispensing product, and the pouch allows for over 99 percent product evacuation. The space-efficient pouch is also designed for stability on shelves and for easy storage within refrigerator doors. AptarGroup's patented VersaPouch closure features an easy-to-open flip-cap, a built-in tamper-evident pull ring and an anti-spill SimpliSqueeze valve. The customizable SimpliSqueeze valve provides clean product cutoff as well as controlled drip-free dispensing.

Ideal for medium- to high-viscosity food, beauty and home products, the new premade version of VersaPouch places the innovative packaging format within reach of more brands than ever before. The unique packaging format is a win-win for both consumers and brands. The package provides on-the-go consumers with a lightweight and highly portable package, and brands can achieve heightened shelf visibility and differentiation with VersaPouch.

"We always strive to create pouches that maximize functionality for the consumer," says Glenroy product development manager Evan Arnold. "At Pack Expo 2016, we're teaming up with the VersaPouch supply chain, including the closure supplier and the pouch filler, to bring brands a new VersaPouch option with low cost of entry. This pouch is poised to disrupt entire product categories and help brands invigorate sales of their products."
