Gusset Pouch

Gusset Pouch is a flexible packaging solution with a unique material known as “gusset”, providing the pouch with an increased volume and strengthened structure. The packaging pouch is available in two different forms: Side Gusset Pouch – when the gusset is added to the side of a pouch; Bottom Gusset Pouch – when the gusset is added to the bottom of a pouch.

Difference Between Side & Bottom Gusset Pouch

Side Gusset is commonly used for products such as coffee, tea, and snacks as the added gusset to the side provides the pouch with more volume, maximising storage capacity for the pouch. This also allows the pouch and product to be displayed vertically or horizontally on the shelf, providing flexible aesthetical appeals to consumers.

The bottom gusset is one of the most common pouches used in the food industry. It can be classified further into three different types, the Round Bottom, K-seal Bottom, and Plow Bottom Gusset, to suit the various needs of customers. The Round Bottom Gusset is used to pack products weighing less than 500 grams, while the K-seal and Plow Bottom are used to pack products weighing more than 500 grams. The difference between the K-seal and Plow Bottom is that the Plow Bottom is typically used for flour and sugars.

Although both Side and Bottom Gusset pouches serve different needs and applications, they offer food manufacturers other packaging design branding options with creative graphic designs.
