Recloseable, lidded flexible container is stackable

Recloseable, lidded flexible container is stackable
Flexible container has rigid lid, which aids in stacking.

This patent is for a flexible, stackable container for transporting and storing just about any type of product from foods to liquids to detergent and more. It creates a sealed bag or package formed from a flexible film and with a recloseable fitment or lid integrated into the design.

The lid fitment may be made from PE, PET, PLA or other thermoformable or injection-moldable material.

Besides offering consumer convenience, the lid also serves to structurally reinforce the package for stacking.

The sheet of film may be formed from PP, PE, foil, paper and/or of composites.

The filing also points out the cube efficiency of the rectangular shape in transport and distribution and at retail and describes the manufacture of the container using vertical or horizontal-form-fill-seal equipment or other machines or machine assemblies. This patent is assigned to Clear Lam Packaging, Inc.
