The pinch bottom is the best bag for medium and big content. It is available either with or without a gusset. A stable bottom forms as the bag is filled and allows for an attractive product display at point of sale.

A variety of barrier materials are available to optimally preserve contents. The bag can either be supplied with a step finish, with hot melt for heat sealed pinch top closure after filling, or alternatively as flat top to be sewn by the customer.


  • Excellent sealing properties: When using heat seal closure, pinch bottom bags offer airtight sealing on both ends which protects the product from external agents and makes for sift proof packaging. This closure method simply requires reactivation of the pre-applied hot melt.
  • Variety of barrier options: This packaging solution is available with coated material, laminated or free film between the paper plies, or greaseproof paper, which can bring the required barrier to the packaging. Different external finishes (matt/glossy effect) are available.
  • Optimal palletisation: Thanks to the square bottom and the tapered form of the bag after filling, the bags can be easily stacked to form a stable pallet.
  • Attractive bag shape: The square bottom shape,in combination with the bag tapering to the top, offers an attractive product presentation.
  • Hermetic bottom closure:Thanks to a thermo-sealed bottom and corners, a tight and hermetic closure is guaranteed.
