Why Should Businesses Choose The Packaging Lab for Custom Spice Packaging?

23 May 2023

Are you looking for custom spice packaging? If so, you’ll need to find the right packaging company. Ideally, their products should contain your spices, keep them safe, and preserve their flavors. At The Packaging Lab, we offer flexible packaging that would be perfect for storing spices. In this blog post, we’ll explore a few benefits of choosing us.  

Our Custom Spice Packaging Is Food-Safe 

All edible products, including spices, need food-safe packaging to keep customers safe. Non-food-safe materials such as BPA plastics can leach BPA, a harmful chemical that can lead to infertility, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, and other serious concerns. At The Packaging Lab, all of the films that we use are designed with food safety in mind, so you don’t need to worry about your customers ingesting dangerous contaminants. 

All Our Packaging Materials Are High-Barrier 

If you aren’t familiar with the term high-barrier packaging, it’s essentially designed to keep your spices safe from the elements. All of the films we use for our pouches and rollstock film are high-barrier. Whenever you order from us, you can rest assured that your products will be protected with the best quality custom spice packaging available. Here are a few things high-barrier packaging protects your spices from:

Flavor Loss

Flavor is everything when it comes to spices, and having the wrong packaging can change the taste. While spices don’t rot like food products do, they start to lose flavor as they’re exposed to oxygen. High-barrier packaging blocks out most oxygen particles. This is important since “contact with oxygen lessens [spices’] potency,” according to Insider

Another thing that can affect the flavor of your spices is light. Light exposure dries out spices and reduces the flavor over time. Our white EVOH and metalized polyester films can block out light so your spices will still be flavorful when your customers receive them. 


When mold contaminates products like spices, it releases mycotoxins. According to Science Direct, “On the whole, mycotoxin infected spices are not safe for human consumption.” It goes on to say that “most commodities listed under the spice family are very prone to mycotoxin contamination,” showing that mold on spices is a much greater problem than most people think. 

Though many factors before, during, and after the production process can affect infection rates, one critical factor is the packaging. High-barrier packaging can block out moisture and humid air, significantly decreasing the likelihood of mold growth. 

We Have Many Sizes Available 

As a spice manufacturer, you may want to sell your spices in smaller packages or sell them in bulk. Having many size options allows you to give your customers variety, which can make your brand more attractive. 

At The Packaging Lab, we offer many different sizes for our pouches. For our stand-up pouches, we offer 12 sizes between 3.25 x 4.75 x 2.0 and 12.0 x 12.5 x 3.5 inches. Meanwhile, our lay-flat pouches come in eight sizes, between 3.25 x 4.5 and 7 x 12 inches. If you have your own packaging machinery, like a stick pack machine, you can even order custom rollstock film from us in the exact dimensions you need.
