Side Gusseted Bags

Side Gusseted Bags

Traditionally used for coffee and tea packaging, side gusseted bags are now gaining popularity within the food industry, particularly for snack foods, confectionery, baked goods, pet food, powdered goods, and other specialty food products. Its layout allows for the product to be displayed horizontally or vertically, providing retailers with greater presentation options. There are different types of Side Gusset Bags available and are also called as gusset bags, side gusset, side gusset pouch, cellophane bags, gusseted plastic bags or cellophane bags, gusseted cello bags or poly bags, easy peel or foil gusseted bags, side gusset bags seal on the side.

They are named for the gusset, or fold, on either side of the bag. The gussets expand when the package is filled with the product. They have a flat bottom, and they are self-standing with the weight of the product usually helping to keep the bag upright. This package format has two panels, one on the front and one on the back, that are ideal for product branding and graphic design customisation to make them more attractive to consumers. It can be manufactured using quality laminate materials that offer high-performance barrier protection to the contents if it is required.

Compared with stand up pouches of the same volume, side gusseted bags require less packing space in cartons. Its cubic shape when filled ensures volumetric and spatial efficiency for shipping and when on the shelf.
