Customized Nuts Packaging Solutions That Make A Statement
Captivate Foodies’ Attention With CarePac’s Show-Stealing & Fully Customized Nuts Packaging
Time To Stand Out From The Market Mass
If you want to make your nuts’ presence felt in the market, you first need to wow your audience, increasing their nuts cravings with your one-of-kind packaging.
In the nut industry, having a quality, recognizable package is key to successfully marketing your product. Think about the major nut brands on the market today, from Planters to Blue Diamond: it’s likely that most consumers can close their eyes and quickly picture the brand’s package, logo, and design. According to Packaging Digest, 90% of brand owners report that packaging is critical to their brand’s survival and success in an increasingly competitive market. Nut packaging is central not just to brand appearance, but also to maintaining nut freshness and making it easier for consumers to snack for longer!
Pouches Have a Competitive Advantage For Nuts!
Common Nut Pouch Configurations
Stand Up Pouches
Stand Up Pouches are the gold standard of the nut industry packaging landscape today. Our stand-up pouches are designed for long-lasting products like nuts to ensure maximum freshness until all their nuts are eaten.
For larger quantities of nuts a box bottom pouch will help hold the nuts and avoid bursting. This flexible wide-sided gusseted pouch is best for higher weights.

Material for Custom Printed Nut
& Dried Fruit Pouches
When it comes to ensuring your product’s freshness, one part of the package is especially important: the barrier. “Barrier” is the name for the type of material that separates the product from the air. It’s this material that protects nuts from moisture and oxygen to make sure they’re tasty and fresh for longer.
As a nut manufacturer, you probably already know that barriers are especially important when it comes to storing nuts. Any food with a high fat content is more likely to spoil if exposed to oxygen, because the fats will go rancid. Roasted, flavored, or coated nuts are especially susceptible because they have a relatively high fat content. And flavor, texture, and odor may all change unpleasantly if nuts are packaged or stored improperly.
By contrast, trail mixes and nut-and-fruit mixes need different barrier considerations, because the moisture content of the dried fruit is important. Dried fruits need a barrier that keeps moisture out to stay fresh.
A final consideration is the size of your package and thus its expected shelf life. Large nut packages that are intended for long-term storage in a customers’ home will need a higher, more long-lasting and protective barrier than small packages that don’t need to stay fresh for as long. We offer multiple kinds of versatile and durable packaging barriers that work great for nut products.
Other Features for Your Nut & Dried Fruit Stand Up Pouches
Adding key features to your packaging can help make your product stand out on the shelves–and be easier for customers to open, re-open, and use at home. We offer customizable special features that allow your packages to perfectly match the optimal design you have in mind. Some of these features include:
We offer multiple zipper options. The standard, reclosable zipper is one of the most popular choices for nut products. Unlike chips or snacks, nuts typically aren’t meant to be opened and then resealed manually through chip clips (or eaten in one sitting.) Instead, your customers are probably going to want to grab handfuls of nuts over the course of a week or more. A zipper is a great solution. In addition to the standard option, we also offer heavy-duty flanged dual track zippers, pull-tab zippers, and wide flange zippers to create a neater tear line and an indication of where to place the thumb when tearing the pouch open.
For the same reason, having a tamper-free tear notch can be useful for a nut product. We offer tear notches and can work with you to determine their placement on the bag in comparison to the zipper. A popular option for nut products is to include a tear notch on top for maximum freshness over grocery-store storage, with a zipper beneath for resealable use at the customers’ home.
We can create a Kraft barrier bag with a clear window on your product. This is a great option for nuts and nut mixes so consumers can see what they’re getting. It’s a unique feature that can truly spell the difference for your product on the grocery store shelves. Industry research has shown that more than half of American consumers think it is important to see a product in the package before buying, which makes clear windows a beneficial feature to have for your nut product.
Custom Nuts Packaging FAQs
Whether you are new to custom printed packaging or a seasoned pro you may have a few questions about our products and process.
Q: What if I have multiple flavors or nut products?
We’ll work with you to determine the best option for what we call SKUs, or stock-keeping units. We can accommodate many different SKUs for your nut product–whether you have a salted/unsalted version, honey roasted or raw, or additional nut flavorings and coverings. We usually advise digital printing if you have many different SKUs with relatively low quantities in each–but again, we’ll work with you to decide the best possible arrangement.
Q: Are your packaging materials FDA Certified?
Yes. We have deep experience with barrier packaging and pride ourselves on using kosher, FDA-approved materials with no toxins. You’ll have peace of mind that you won’t have to deal with a regulatory inquiry or a safety issue from one of your consumers.
Q: Can I get color matching?
Yes. We use the Pantone Matching System, an industry standard for packaging colors. We use visually appealing, nuanced colors that can be matched to create a comprehensive and unified look for your brand.
Q: What eco-friendly materials do you use?
We use two main types of recyclable bags. The first is our “Code 4” material, a recycle-ready biax PE, meaning it has a lower barrier than traditional lamination but with visual clarity on the design and a capacity for matte varnish. The second type of fully recyclable bag is our “Code 5,” a cross-laminate material. Code 5 bags have a high barrier and high strength. They’re available in matte or gloss designs.
Q: I need packaging for a mixed nut product. What barrier should I use?
We can work with you to determine the best possible barrier for mixed products. Whether it’s nuts and fruit, nuts and seeds, trail mixes, chocolate-covered nuts, or nuts with special flavors, we’re very familiar with the benefits of different barriers, and the key axes that need to be considered: moisture, oxygen, and UV rays. We can work with you to determine a barrier that works best for a mixed nuts and fruit product, or any other nut assortment you’re looking to have packaging for.
Q: My company sells multiple products in addition to nuts. What do your packaging solutions look like for other products?
We’ve worked with a range of food products and can provide custom packaging for many different types of goods. Some of the other products we typically work with include candy, tea, snacks, cannabis, coffee, dog treats, supplements, jerky, meat, and cheese. If you’re interested in learning more about packaging solutions for additional products beyond nuts, you can check out the product pages on our website, or call us for more information.
