Benefits of a Doypack
The Doyen seal significantly enhances the stability of heavier products on the grocery store shelf. This is achieved through its unique “U” shape gusset, which positions your product inside closer to the bottom of the pouch. As a result, your pouch gains a solid and stable base, ensuring it stands up more securely.

Doypack Pouch FAQ
What is a doypack?
A doypack, also referred to as a stand-up pouch, is a type of flexible packaging that has become widely used in diverse industries. It stands out due to its distinctive design, enabling it to remain upright on store shelves or any flat surface. The term “doypack” originates from the French word “doyen,” and was coined by the French packaging company Thimonnier in the 1960s. It means “to stand,” and “pack,” representing its purpose as a packaging container. It was created as a brand name for their stand-up pouch packaging concept.
