Why choose VFFS?

  • Effective volume control
  • Cost savings during transit: the lightweight bags can be flat packed to minimise transport costs
  • Film can be printed with full branding: ready for the shelves without the need for labelling

 

What products can VFFS pack?

Best suited to loose, dry products. VFFS is very good at preserving your food or product. A process called gas flushing can be used to help preserve the product.

How it works

A flat film is formed into the shape of a tube using a lap or fin seal on the reverse. The product is then weighed above the bagger and the appropriate portion is dropped in. As one bag is sealed, the bottom of the next is created.​
