Flat base pouches are side-gusseted pouches with five main panels for product branding. Due to having a true flat bottom, they offer good product stability and presentation on shelf. The additional branding section, which is visible when the pouch is laid down, offers a more premium package vs conventional SQ4 and stand up pouches.

This pack format is suitable for products up to 4Kg weights, with options for multiple webs providing greater flexibility to designs and performance, and optional resealable press to close (PTC) zippers.
