First-Of-Its-Kind BLOCKBAG® Combines Shelf Appeal Of A Block Bottom Bag With Fully Automated Production Capabilities

Telford, PA – Fres-co System USA, a single source provider of flexible packaging solutions, announced the launch of its new BLOCKBAG®, the first fully automatic machine that produces a premium package that mimics the block bottom bag. BLOCKBAG combines the shelf appeal and stability of a block bottom bag with the ability to produce it in a completely automated production process – something coffee roasters in particular have sought, but not been able to obtain until now.

Known for its industry-leading coffee market innovations, including the one-way degassing valve, Fres-co has introduced a unique packaging solution that delivers benefits both roasters and consumers will value. BLOCKBAG enables the precision and convenience of fully automatic production, the stability and reliability of a flat bottom, the product freshness consumers expect, and the unique aesthetics that make for an impactful presence on the shelf. BLOCKBAG supports full front-panel and back-panel printing and is ideal for packaging coffee.

“Coffee roasters appreciate the advantages of a block bottom bag, but until now they’ve had to use a manual or semi-manual process to fill and seal it,” says Chris Burger, business director, coffee at Fres-co. “BLOCKBAG solves that issue by enabling roasters to fully automate the block bottom bag into production for the first time, resulting in automatic product resulting in improved efficiency.”
