Bag-in-Box FAQs

What is the advantage of a vertically integrated Bag-in-Box manufacturer?

One of the key benefits of a vertically integrated Bag-in-Box manufacturer is total control over the entire manufacturing process. This includes everything from purchasing high-grade raw materials to making the film and converting bags that meet exact specifications to final delivery to the customer. Customers have assurance that there are no unexpected surprises or last-minute substitutions that could cause defects or inconsistencies. This also significantly reduces potential issues within the supply chain that could potentially delay delivery of your bags.

What are some of the most important considerations for Bag-in-Box solutions in dairy packaging?

A primary consideration in the Dairy industry is the dependable and timely delivery of bags. Unlike other liquids, milk will spoil if there are any delays in packaging. It is critical that dairy processors have the bags they need at all times without any disruption to supply. That’s one of the many advantageous of working with General Films – we honor our commitments. Even in the most unexpected circumstances, like during the Covid-19 pandemic, General Films ensured that all of our customers had bags on-site and ready to run.

Why is Bag-in-Box a popular option for packaging?

Although Bag-in-Box has been around since the 1950s, it continues to expand worldwide into new and innovative liquid product packaging. Interestingly, General Films was at the forefront of the Bag-in-Box revolution, and we had several early patents specifically for the dairy industry. There are numerous advantages to a quality Bag-in-Box system. One of the most significant is sustainability compared to other types of packaging. Less waste, a lower carbon footprint, easier stacking and shipping, and other factors contribute to a more purposeful packaging solution.
