"The stand-up bags address a consumer need for convenience and freshness, while providing retailers with easy-to-stock, appealing packaging that will drive category consumption."


The product will begin shipping in June 2012 to grocery stores, mass merchandisers, convenience stores, specialty retailers and more.


Suggested retail pricing ranges from $1.99 to $2.99, depending on the specific item, which vary in size from 5.5 to 9 ounces per bag.
