These pouches are suitable for various product types including liquids, dry goods and frozen free flow products. Using pouches to replace other packaging formats such as tin cans or glass provides an opportunity to reduce packaging material by up to 85%. Snell Flexibles is a partner in the Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme which means that pouches are now fully recyclable in New Zealand and Australia.

The side gusset pouch is well-suited for export with large volume capacity and a small footprint for packing and transport. Suitable for large volume/bulk products up to 10kg

Side gusseted bags offer large real estate with four printable sides for strong shelf presence. Print-registered side gussets enable ‘wrap around’ print for great brand impact. High quality end graphics and imagery can be delivered through gravure printing.
