On-Time Delivery

Perishable products don’t have the luxury of being shelved for later when Bag-in-Box bag shipments are delayed. At General Films, we commit to delivering what you need, when you need it. You can rest assured that your order will be delivered in a timely manner and have confidence in our open and transparent communication on the status of each order.

Grade A Protection

You need to have total confidence your liquid products will arrive in ready-to-serve condition. That starts by working with a Bag-in-Box packaging partner that prioritizes quality and service. We manufacture cap and dispenser bags using coextruded multi-layer film that provides exceptional pinhole resistance and secure seals. Our perforated web bags are fan-folded in a corrugated box for economical shipping and convenient storage.

Dependable Quality

Reduce revenue loss with bags and fitments that hold their seals. We make our own film, BIB bags, and dispenser tubes. Our bags are drop tested to ensure they are tough enough to withstand challenging processing conditions. In addition, we use a proprietary method to securely seal tubes and cap fittings to the bags. By maintaining precise control over raw materials and production, we can ensure the quality and reliability of our Bag-in-Box bags are consistent every time.

Customized Bags

Your options aren’t limited with General Films. While we manufacture Bag-in-Box bags in standard 2.5-gallon and five-gallon sizes, we’ll gladly work with you to design bags that fit your exact requirements. Need a unique formulation for your film? We can help with that, too. Our in-house manufacturing capabilities give us the flexibility to tailor our products to your production needs.

Sustainable Approach

With less weight and fewer raw materials, flexible bags offer a more sustainable option compared to many forms of packaging, such as single-service containers or rigid packaging. Less weight means lower shipping costs, and the boxes and crates used in Bag-in-Box are typically reusable or recyclable. In addition, the manufacturing process typically requires less energy, produces fewer emissions, and generally requires a smaller carbon footprint.

Attentive Service

Protect your margins and your brand with a partner that prioritizes your needs. As a family business, we understand the stakes you’re up against. Your reputation rests on fulfilling every order as promised. So does ours. If we promise it, we’ll deliver it.

We can also provide food-grade thermoplastic tubes for your other dispensing needs. Since General Films manufactures film for many food packaging and industrial applications, there are often convenient and economic advantages to consolidating your packaging buy.
