Benefits

Leading the way
in Recyclable
packaging

Through continuous product development, we are able to offer a comprehensive range of films, pre-made bags, pouches and sacks, encompassing the most up to date production and material technology.

It was our mission to create a range of products that were not inferior to conventional mixed plastics, but equal.

Flat base pouches, also known as Box Pouches, 3D Pouches, 5 Panel Pouches and U 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.
