  • Paper is a recyclable, sustainable, renewable resource, with a readymade recycling stream, high consumer confidence and is universally recognized as a “green package”.
  • Paper for produce offers superior light protection, has natural absorption characteristics and can be automated for efficient production.
  • Paper has a large international network of manufactures insuring constant supply with manageable market fluctuation. Paper is the new buzzword in new packaging with accelerated innovation unseen in prior substrates.
  • Paper is now very competitive with plastics due to innovation in fiber strength and “stretchable” products that improve package integrity.
  • Most major retailers are asking for paper solutions to replace plastics and laminated structures. Many countries are eliminating or taxing single use plastics in favor of paper.
  • Paper can be adapted to existing automated packaging lines such as form fill seal, stand up pouch and wickets, keeping the cost of change from plastics to paper affordable.



Is a 100 percent recyclable paper produce pouch designed specifically for the produce industry!  The PaperView package uses a unique wood fiber mesh window that can be placed anywhere on a package for ventilation as well as visual inspection by the consumer.  PaperView pouches can be made using proprietary sealing technology to allow packers the ability to use existing form fill and seal, stand up pouch and pre-made bag filling equipment enhancing their automation.  The PaperView pouch was designed along with several major retail reps and is the preferred package for sustainable produce packaging.  PaperView pouches can be made with a variety of mesh colors and are available in up to 10 color prints.

Paper Pouch

With the popularity of the stand up pouch, it only made sense for The Paper People to develop a paper stand up pouch. If you have been looking for a pouch that can give you the visibility and function of plastics with the benefit of being 100% recyclable, the Paper Pouch is for you. Add in the mesh or clear paper windows for viewing and make the move to a truly sustainable, recyclable package. No tricks, green washing or “almost” in this package!
