Flat Pouch

What is a flat pouch (aka 2 or 3-sided seal)?

The flat pouch gets its name from being completely flat with no gussets. It may also be referred to as a two-sided or three-sided seal pouch depending on the number of finished seals. This format is highly popular for one-time use products such as condiments and sauces, however, you can add a reclosable zipper to make the pouch reusable.
