Side gusset pouches have revolutionized the packaging industry with their unique design and numerous benefits. There are multiple reasons why brands are shifting away from rigid cardboard packaging and towards flexible pouch packaging. Side gusset pouches, as opposed to something rigid and boxy like a cereal box, hold more products in smaller package sizes, resulting in a less wasteful, low-cost, and ideal storage solution.
The filling volume is one of the most noticeable benefits of packaging with a side gusset pouch or unprinted pouches. On the surface, an empty cereal box can hold more product than an empty side gusset bag. On the other hand, the side gusset pouch expands as the bag fills, allowing it to hold more product than appears at first glance.
Packing more product into a smaller bag also means less material waste after use. The side gusset pouch is more environmentally friendly because it takes up less space in the landfill. Side gusset pouches, like all of our flexible pouches, use various lightweight packaging materials and film layers for improved sealability, performance, and product protection.
When filled, the side gusset pouch resembles a box due to the quad siding, ability to stand upright, and canvas space for graphics. The difference is the larger product-to-package ratio of the side gusset pouch, which improves storage space both internally at the manufacturing facility and on the shelves once the package is consumer-ready.
Another significant benefit of side gusset bags and pouches is their ability to handle various product types. Certain snack foods, such as pistachios, have sharp edges that can puncture the packaging, causing the product to become rancid. Side gusset pouches use strong, long-lasting high-barrier films to prevent material deterioration and unwanted product recalls.
