Food Packaging

Get Superior Protection with  Flexible Barrier Packaging 

The technology of food packaging has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 50 years. Gone are the days where a business was limited to flimsy cardboard boxes or breakable glass jars. Flexible Barrier packaging is specially formulated to create unique packaging solutions in non-rigid form. It’s a lightweight, economical choice that can be custom-built to provide maximum protection for your unique product.


CarePac specializes in using high-quality flexible barrier film to create custom packaging for your business. Our experience with layering different barrier films means we can create packaging that is made to your exact specifications. We know there are two things that cause food product to spoil more quickly – air and moisture. To maintain maximum freshness and shelf life, our films are built to block oxygen and water vapor from coming in contact with your products. This process locks in flavor and extends the shelf life of your food considerably.  

Custom Pouches Perfect For Your Every Packaging Need

Stand Up Pouch

The stand up pouch is the most popular flexible barrier configuration we make. These bags are outfitted with a bottom gusset, that when deployed, allows the pouch to "stand up" on a shelf in a store. Add features such as a zipper closure and a tear notch for extra convenience. 

3 Seal Pouch

With a 3 seal pouch configuration, you load the product in the same way your customer would remove it - through the top. Additionally, bags with a zipper closure could be used without heat-sealing. 3 seal pouches pack well in standard cardboard boxes, saving you money on transportation costs.

Liquid Spout Pouch

Spout pouches launched into popularity several years ago and are idea for dairy, baby food, yogurt and other liquid food products. They are convenient, and easy to open and reseal. All of our pouches are food safe and approved by the FDA. 

Food Packaging Designed for Top-Shelf Product

CarePac understands the needs of small and medium-sized food distributors. Our custom packaging offers a professional appearance — like the packaging used by Fortune 500 companies.

We Save You Money

Even with smaller budgets we offer you the opportunity to compete with the biggest brands in the industry.

Fast Shipping

We offer some of the fastest lead times for food packaging in the business. Expedited lead times for digital and plate printing come in at 4 weeks and 5 weeks respectively. 

Lock in Freshness + Flavor

Packaging your food product in flexible barrier packaging keeps your product fresher for longer, and makes storage simple for your customer.

Low Minimum Order Quantities

Print and customize as few as 1,000 bags (5,000 bags on some configurations and sizes). 

Art & Design Services

Need a logo or design? No problem! We provide brand design services to help you create the branded custom food packaging your product deserves. We'll get your product to stand out from the crowd!

FDA Approved & Kosher

All our packaging is FDA approved, Kosher, TSE free, BPA free, and Sulfer & Phthalates free.

Avoid the China Trap

Purchasing pouches from China does not provide cheaper or faster alternatives, like many small and medium sized businesses have been made to believe. In fact, many of our current clients have encountered problems when ordering from China due to the language barrier, the lack of compliance documentation, longer lead times and, above all, higher tariffs. 

High Quality Pouches Start with the Right Material

CareSilver

CareSilver is our silver barrier material that offers a great barrier to cost ratio. These pouches are strong, durable, and a wonderful surface for your custom printing. This material is compatible with both custom digitally printed pouches, or plate printed pouches. CareSilver comes in both a Gloss, Matte, or Custom finish. 

CareClear

CareClear is a clear base material. That means you can use it to build windows into your custom bag to see the food inside. CareClear comes in many variations but all of them can be custom printed, both digitally or plate printed. CareClear is an attractive choice for your bags where viewing windows are allows by your state's laws. 

CareFoil

CareFoil is our highest barrier material. In essence it is like putting your food inside an aluminum can, but in this case it's a flexible pouch with an aluminum foil layer of protection. Don't worry your product never actually touches the aluminum, but you get all the benefits of using it, including maximum shelf life and retained potency of your product. 

Custom Flexible Barrier Film Packaging

Here are some of the configurations available for custom food packaging.

Stock options can offer typical unit sizes for your food packaging, however, if you find your company’s needs are different than stock sizes, flexible barrier packaging allows for creating the size best suited to your needs.

Choosing the Right Flexible Barrier Food Packaging

Flexible barrier food packaging has become a popular solution to preserving the freshness of your food product

There are certain considerations that should be taken into account when deciding on the right type of barrier packaging film for your food product. How long is your product going to be in the package? What is the required shelf life? How important is the freshness of your product?


Compare packaging Corn Chips vs. Dried Berries. Corn chips are a low margin retail item usually packaged in economical medium to low barrier materials. Because they are generally consumed quickly, nobody expects chips to have an extensive shelf life. Dried berries, on the other hand, are a more expensive product and require a longer shelf life. they are highly stable and are not usually consumed in one sitting. Therefore, the packaging must reflect these differences. 

Think about these questions as you consider your packaging needs:

  • Where will my product be sold?
  • Are there space constraints, or retail requirements?
  • How much product do you need in each pouch?
  • Will the product be stored in a freezer? Shelf?
          Indoors or Outdoors?
  • How is it transported? Air freight is subjected to
          higher pressures than truck shipments.
  • What is your "fill philosophy" - how much product do
          you want in the packaging?
  • Is your product single-use or multi-use?

These are just some of the questions our packaging specialists will walk you through as we prepare to create your custom flexible barrier packaging. We are here to serve!
