What is a Flat Bottom Bag?
Box Bottom Bags (also known as Flat Bottom Bags) are a five-sided, free-standing pouch with a flat, rectangular base. The stable base ensures the packaging stands and stays upright. Unlike other flexible packaging where the folds create voids, flat bottom bags take full advantage of space and economise the size of packaging by ensuring all available space is used. The flat bottom bag is a versatile packaging option when filling and caters to a wide range of industries.
Common Applications for Box Bottom Bags:
- Coffee & Tea
- Food, Snacks, Cereals, Oats & Grains
- Supplements, Sports Nutrition & Powders
- Nutraceuticals & Personal Care
- Pet food, treats and animal products
Design & Functionality
Box Bottom Bags can be easily tailored to specific requirements. Their modern appearance and efficient use of space provide not only a prominent shelf presence but due to their lightweight and durable materials, are one of the most economical ways to store and transport products. The construction of Box Bottom Bags results in a stable base for the upright display of products. Excellent barrier properties ensure products preserve their taste and quality for longer, and resealable zip locks provide easy-to-use options for customers when the product requires multiple uses.
Full graphics can be custom printed on the outside surface to create beautiful finished packaging, showcasing different flavours, blends and styles. In the dynamic and changing world of consumer packaging, this flexibility in finished design allows for brand development and seasonal packaging to capture the full benefits of digital printing for customisation and personalisation.
