Side-gusseted bags by Südpack consist of multilayer high barrier material. Using these, large blocks of cheese can be packaged via a fully automatic packaging system. The process includes the bagging of the block of cheese, the shrink folding of the side gusset, vacuuming and sealing. The EVOH high barrier in the film protects the cheese against external influences during the entire maturation process. Due to its outstanding sealing properties, the side-gusseted bag also safely seals even through contamination.
