After first opening, the consumer can reseal the zipper straight across or with the gussets back in place.The new Zip 360 flexible pouch format answers the consumer's desire for increased convenient product access, easy pouring and reclosability for freshness.


Developed by Zip-Pak, in partnership with form-fill-seal machine manufacturer Triangle Package Machinery Co. and film supplier Printpack, Zip 360 adds a zipper reclosure to the full width of a gusseted pouch (360 degrees). After first opening, the consumer can reseal the zipper straight across or with the gussets back in place. Opening just a corner area creates a pour spout for controlled dispensing. 


Zip 360 is suitable for free-flowing products, including snacks, cereals, frozen foods, candies, pet foods, lawn and garden products, and more. The Zip 360 can be adapted to various bag sizes. Although the current design uses a single-channel zipper, future versions could accommodate a double press-to-close zipper or a slider.


As a bag-in-box replacement, the Zip 360 gusseted pouch can be printed on all sides and the bottom for high shelf impact but with less packaging. Because the package is reclosable, consumers can keep products fresh without having to transfer them to a separate container so the brand message stays in front of the consumer from first to last touch.
