Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea Pouches

Our Sweet Pea Pouch is made from two layer 100% recyclable poly film substrate. This film substrate is categorized under recycle logo #5. Our pouches provide excellent film clarity to showcase the produce inside. We can also tailor-make our pouches to meet your specific requirements. Below are some of the additional product features we can include.

Our factory uses rotogravure printing plates instead of polymer printing plates to print all our pouches. The difference can be seen in our print quality. Our printing presses print on 175-line screens, compared to most North American printers, which use polymer plates that print on 125-line screens. This is why our printed bag quality is much sharper, with clearer images and more vibrant colours.     

Optional Features:
Anti-Fog-Produce Pkg
Anti-Fog-Produce Pkg


Construction:

A proprietary anti-fog coating is applied onto the film substrate during manufacturing.

Feature Highlight:

This feature causes the fog inside the bag to condense into water droplets when it comes in contact with the anti-fog coating inside the bag. The condensed water droplets then flow down the side of the bag and gives you clear visibility of the contents inside.

This technology was used on the visors of astronauts to give them clear visibility when they are in space. The same technology is now used on our bags.


Diamond Cut Bottom Gusset-Produce Pkg
Diamond Cut Bottom Gusset-Produce Pkg


Construction:

The bag is folded at the bottom to form a gusset. A custom-made die is used to cut a 45-degree angle on both edges of the bottom gusset. The edges are then heat-sealed together. This creates a diamond-shaped bottom when you open up the gusset.  

Feature Highlight:

Unlike the regular-bottom gusset bag, the 45-degree angle cut on the bottom gusset allows the gusset to open wider. With a wider base, the bag stands upright better. It also allows large fruits like apples to sit squarely at the bottom of the bag.


Die-Cut Handle and Slider Seal-Produce Pkg
Die-Cut Handle and Slider Seal-Produce Pkg


Construction:

An injection-moulded slider is mounted on a set of zipper seals, below the lip handle, at the front panel of the pouch. The front and rear panel of the lip handle is then flattened or grid heat-sealed together. A die is then used to cut a handle hole on the bag lip above the zipper seal to create a drip handle.

Compared to our regular zipper seal pouch, whereby the front and rear lip handle panels are not sealed together, this structure makes the lip handle stronger and more resistant to tearing at the die-cut handle. This built-in handle is only suitable for light to medium weights. For heavier pack sizes in the four to six-pound range, we may have to change the design of the due-cut handle, do a fold-over, or make a re-enforced patch handle.

Feature Highlight:

Injection-moulded sliders provide easier grips when opening and closing the zipper seal. This feature is ideal for seniors and children, or anyone who may struggle with finger dexterity.

The built-in grip handle feature allows for easy transportation of the product in the bag. There will be no extra cost if your custom requirement can be met by existing tools in our facility.


Die-Cut Handle and Zipper Seal-Produce Pkg
Die-Cut Handle and Zipper Seal-Produce Pkg


Construction:

Poly resin is extruded through a pair of male and female steel dies to form a continuous pair of zipper seals. The male and female zipper seals are then mounted on the inside front and back panel of the pouch bag by heat sealing. A die is then used to cut a handle hole on the bag lip above the zipper seal to create a grip handle.

We are one of the few factories that produces our own zipper seal profiles in-house. This gives us the edge we need to keep our overall costs competitive, as well as the ability to make custom profile zipper seals to meet our specific requirements. This built-in handle is only suitable for light to medium weights. For heavier pack sizes in the four to six-pound range, we can change design of the die cut handle, do a fold-over, or make are-enforced patch handle.

Feature Highlight:

Zipper seals are the most economical and widely-used form of poly bag closures. It is simple to use and convenient. The re-sealable bag feature helps the produce reduce excessive moisture loss and thus keeps products fresh for longer.

The built-in grip handle feature allows for easy transportation of the product. There will be an extra cost if your custom specifications require us to make new dies.


Fold-Over Lip Handle-Produce Pkg
Fold-Over Lip Handle-Produce Pkg


Construction:

A regular produce pouch bag has a Lip Handle of about 50 mm above the bag closure. However to produce a Fold-Over Lip Handle bag, the lip handle is extended by another 60 mm. This allows the extended lip handle to fold over and create a two layer film substrate handle. The bag closure is then heat sealed  and a steel die cuts the handle hole onto the folded lip handle.

Feature Highlight:

This feature makes the Lip Handle stronger and more resistant to tearing at the Die-Cut Handle. Ideal for heavier pack sizes like 4 Lbs and above. This is a fast and economical way of make a re-enforced Lip Handle without costly investment in new machinery.


Laser Vent Holes-Produce Pkg
Laser Vent Holes-Produce Pkg


Construction:

Precise holes are laser-cut onto a film substrate to create one or two continuous row/s of perforated vent holes. Our laser can cut round and clean micro vent holes less of less than than 1mm in diameter, which is not achievable through a conventional hot needle process.

Feature Highlight:

Precision-cut laser vent holes allow you to extend the shelf life of the product inside the bag. These laser vent holes help control the amount of oxygen and ethylene transferred in and out of the bag.    

Our Laser Micro Perforated CPP Lychee Liners also help deter micro fruit flies from getting into the bags. Our Lychee Liners have been approved for used by the Australian Department of Agriculture and also the United State Department of Agriculture.


Micro Vent Holes-Produce Pkg
Micro Vent Holes-Produce Pkg


Construction:

Hot micro needles mounted on a steel roller are rolled onto the film substrate to create continuous rows of perforated vent holes. Cold Micro Needles mounted on a steel block are then punched into the film substrate to create a rectangle block of perforated vent holes.

Feature Highlight:

This feature allows the product to breathe without losing too much moisture. This packaging is ideal for vegetable products such as leafy produce, snow peas, shaved carrots, and more.


Microwaveable-Produce Pkg
Microwaveable-Produce Pkg


Construction:

The pouch is made from a microwave-safe Poly Film Substrate. A proprietary Hot Air Release feature is built into the laminated layer of the film substrate. This allows the film to ‘pop open’ and release the hot steam inside the bag.

Feature Highlight:

The hot steam inside the pouch will automatically cause the bag to ‘pop open’ at the Hot Air Release when the pressure inside the bag builds up sufficiently. This allows safe handling of the bag after the product is cooked.


PTO Wicket Lips-Produce Pkg
PTO Wicket Lips-Produce Pkg


Construction:

The rear lip handle is extended by an additional 38mm to create a wicket lip. The wicket lip is typically perforated at the bottom above the lip handle to allow for easy tearing. Two wicket holes – roughly 16mm in diameter are cut on the wicket lip. 200 wicket lip produce bags are mounted on a wicket wire through the two wicket holes.

For applications where a wicket wire is not required, the 200 wicket lip produce bags is hot needle heat sealed at 3 points to hold the wicket together.

Feature Highlight:

The wicket lip function of this packaging allows you to pack your produce quickly and more efficiently. The wicket can be mounted on your packaging machine or on your packing table. The bag openings line up on the wicket with the front panel facing toward the packer. The packer simply pulls the front panel of the bag toward them, dropping the produce into the bag while tearing the lip handle away at the wicket.


Regular Bottom Gusset-Produce Pkg
Regular Bottom Gusset-Produce Pkg


Construction:

The bag is folded at the bottom to form a gusset.

Feature Highlight:

This feature allows the bag to stand upright as a way to showcase your produce.


Regular Vent Holes-Produce Pkg
Regular Vent Holes-Produce Pkg


Construction:

Special Steel Die mounted with multiple punches, as many as 20 to 25 units, cuts 6 mm or 8 mm diameter vent holes on Poly Film substrate. These punches can be strategically located on the die so it does not cut away any printed graphics or texts. 

 

Feature Highlight:

Most Produce Pouches require multiple vent holes to allow the produce to breathe and extend the shelve life of the produce. Our factory is equipped with many sets of these Steel Dies because of our many years producing these kinds of produce pouches for customers. No extra charge if you can use our existing tooling. We can also make custom die to meet your specific requirement. Custom die cost is extra.  


Tamper-Proof Slider Seal-Produce Pkg
Tamper-Proof Slider Seal-Produce Pkg


Construction:

In contrast to our regular produce slider pouch, the injection molded slider is mounted on a set of zipper seals located between the front and back panel of the lip handle. The lip handle is not grid heat sealed together.

The tamper-proof product slider pouch features a lip handle that is roughly 70-80mm above the slider seal. This extra room accommodates for two-tear notched and “seal zone”. The two-tear notches are located roughly 13mm above the slider seal on both side edges of the pouch. The “seal zone” is located about 5mm above the two-tear notches and is roughly 10mm in height. The “seal zone” is typically below the die cut handle.

Feature Highlight:

Product that is packed in tamper proof slider seal packaging is sealed in at the “seal zone”, creating tamper-proof packaging.

When your produce is packed into this packaging and heat sealed at the 'Seal Zone', it creates a Tamper-Proof Packaging. This Tamper-Proof packaging prevents consumers from coming in direct contact with your produce. Heath Canada welcomes this feature on Produce Packaging because of Food Safety. Grocers welcome this feature for both Food Safety and Produce Wastage. This Tamper-Proof feature deters consumers from hand picking and damaging the produce


Tamper-Proof Zipper Seal-Produce Pkg
Tamper-Proof Zipper Seal-Produce Pkg


Construction:

Average product pouches feature a lip handle of roughly 40mm above the zipper seal. Our tamper proof produce zipper pouch by comparison features a lip handle that is 70 to 80mm above the zipper seal. This offers additional room needed to accommodate two-tear notches and a “seal zone”

The two-tear notches are located 13mm above the zipper seal on both side edges of the pouch. The “seal zone” is located roughly 5mm above the two-tear notches, and is about 10mm in height. The ‘seal zone’ is typically located below the die cut handle.

Feature Highlight:

Produce that is packaged in the tamper proof zipper seal bag are heat sealed at the “Seal Zone” to effectively create tamper-proof packaging. This prevents consumers from coming in direct contact with your produce. The tamper-proof feature deters consumers from hand-picking and potentially damaging produce.
