Cheerpack Australia introduced the Spouted Pouch packaging system to the Oceania region in 2001. Cheerpack is a patented, high quality spouted pouch packaging system, providing consumer convenience and maximising shelf appeal for both food and non food products.
Laminates can range from a cold fill laminate for dairy, hot fill laminate for purees, and retortable laminates for products requiring a long shelf life. All laminates have high barrier properties which are tailored to the requirements of your product.
We will work with you to provide a total packaging solution with packaging systems that include spouted pouches, design, filling machines, processing equipment and compatible upstream and downstream solutions to support the complete filling line.
Our network of independent consultants we can connect you with includes:
- Food Technology experts to develop or improve your product and processing conditions, determining the required barrier properties for the packaging.
- Designers with extensive experience in designing artwork for the Cheerpack packaging format.
- Contract manufacture and packing network in Australia and New Zealand with broad capabilities to produce your product on your behalf in fully accredited facilities.
