Side-gusseted bag for rectangular cheddar

The perfect solution for rectangular blocks of cheese: using Südpack side-gusseted bags, blocks of cheese up to 20kg, for example cheddar, can be packed fully automatically. Thanks to the special high barrier, the entire maturation time for the cheese takes place within the bag.

Side-gusseted bag

Safe packaging and maturation of large blocks of cheese

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.
