Zipbox features a press-to-close zipper on top that allows easy opening and closing. An airtight seal configuration on the package bottom eliminates the need for an additional liner. The zippered pouch folds down after filling for efficient sealing and shipping, and is easily opened when the top flaps are lifted up by the consumer. The liner-less design also provides a minimum of 10% additional content when compared to traditional bag-in-box packaging, and up to 40% in some cases.
