Fres Flow™ Bag-in-Box Flexible Packaging Solution (BIB)

Bag-in-Box Goes Modern and Cost-Efficient with Fres-co’s Fres Flow™!

Fres Flow™, Fres-co’s latest packaging innovation for shelf stable or refrigerated products, gives yesterday’s Bag-in-Box (BIB) a long overdue makeover. Using our VFFS machines, we apply pierce-at-first-use dispensing taps to the outside layer of high barrier rollstock as pouches are formed, filled, and sealed. No more pre-irradiated bags or fitments required!

  • Extended product shelf life
  • Easier handling, shipping, and storage
  • Decreased product waste
  • Package design appeal and customization

Benefits of Fres-co’s Fres Flow™ Packaging Solution:

Fres Flow™ may look identical to Bag-in-Box (BIB) on the outside, but don’t let that fool you. Save time and money while ensuring the integrity of your product with these unique Fres Flow™ benefits:

  • Higher output using consistently reliable, built-to-last VFFS machines
  • Longer shelf life due to elimination of oxygen ingress through traditional BIB fitments
  • Compatibility with low acid aseptic, high acid aseptic, ESL, Ultra Clean, hot fill or cold fill technology
  • Sterilization of rollstock right on the machine when packaging aseptic products, plus no need to sterilize pierce-at-first-use dispensing taps
  • A wide range of package sizes
  • Reduced material, shipping, storage and waste disposal costs

Traditional BIB technology is more than 50 years old, but Fres-co has the next generation ready! And if you’re not yet using BIB, “easy pour, easy store” Fres Flow™ packages can help you make the move to flexible by replacing rigid gallon jugs, PET bottles, and paperboard cartons. Whether you are packaging wines, spirits, ready-to-drink cocktails, juices, iced teas, dairy, dairy alternatives, broths or edible oils, enjoy the Fres Flow™ advantage!

Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Packaging Alternative

Fres Flow™ offers a more eco-friendly packaging option, with a lower carbon footprint compared to glass, plastic, and other rigid packaging options. Additionally, the lighter weight material combined with a significant improvement in the product-to-packaging ratio will reduce shipping, storage and waste disposal costs.

Our Pierce-at-First uses Pierce Tap to extend the shelf life of your product with superior barrier protection against light and oxygen.

Fres Flow™ Product Safety

We prioritize consumer safety in our product packaging solutions. We have a rigorous mechanical and quality testing process for all of our machines and package materials. This includes sterilization of rollstock right on the machine when packaging aseptic products.
