Easy-scoop-lock-tight pitcher bag for multinational food brands!

What flashes past your mind when you hear the word ‘Pitcher’- perhaps a glass jar full of your favorite cola drink! Imagine an aesthetically enhanced flexible pitcher that can pour out and can thereafter be locked tightly with equal ease, to keep the product safe for deferred use.

Uflex Limited has engineered an Easy-Scoop-Lock-Tight Pitcher Bag that effortlessly dispenses controlled portions of the product packed inside. The 4 panel bag comes with a reinforced handle on the side gusset spelling tremendous ease of carrying. Additionally the block bottom allows the bag to stand up without taking any support, thereby, enhancing the brand visibility. The pitcher bag has become a rage in the industry with more and more multinational food brands opting for it both in India as well as overseas. This bag is much in demand for packaging granular products like rice, sugar, pulses and pet foods.

Speaking about the Easy-Scoop-Lock-Tight Pitcher Bag, Jeevaraj Pillai, joint president, packaging and new product development, Uflex Limited said, “These are medium to large sized bags capable of accommodating 3; 5 and 10 kilograms of the product. We have provided a laser perforated easy to tear opening on the side at the top of the bag which peels open to form a perfectly versatile pitcher mouth-opening that is re-closable by a special press to close (PTC) zipper. The end user can easily pour/scoop out desired quantity of the product by holding the bag with the reinforced side gusset handle without actually inserting hands inside the pack. This makes the handling more convenient and hygienic. Further owing to the dispensing mouth that forms in the pouch there is no apprehension of any spillage while pouring out unlike other pillow and conventional pouches. The side opening can be tightly closed by pressing the PTC zipper keeping the product safe for deferred use throughout the prescribed shelf life of the product.”

It is particularly important to note that the reinforced handle on the side gusset is an integral and contiguous part of the pouch itself unlike other bags where the side handle is assembled/ pasted offline on a separate machine.

The Easy-Scoop-Lock-Tight Pitcher Bag is made of multi-layered laminate depending upon the barrier properties required by the product to be packed inside.

Talking about the new product, Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman & managing director, Uflex Limited said, “It is a classic example of process improvement and incrementally progressive efficient converting. We have invested in sophisticated pouch making machinery getting a clear edge above others in manufacturing the Easy-Scoop-Lock-Tight Pitcher Bag. Further value engineering is also underway to add more ergonomically enhanced functionalities and brand protection solutions in the bags to make them yet more versatile.”
