A new option for dry pet food manufacturers and pet treat operations looking to automate their packaging and reduce costs is the Bosch SVI series VFFS (vertical form fill seal) baggers.  The Bosch SVI series VFFS baggers have the potential to reduce material costs by up to 40% verse pre-made bags.

New VFFS machines, like the Bosch SVI, are now able to make a wide range of bag styles and can even incorporate popular reclose features that traditionally were only available in pre-made bags.   Reclose features have gained popularity, and are widely used in the pet treat market on doy style bags.  Horizontal pouch machines, another alternative to pre-made bags, can produce high quality doy style pouches as well.  However, they are significantly more expensive than VFFS machines and have a much larger footprint.

As a provider of both bag closers and VFFS machines, Bosch can help pet food operations decide which machine will help them best meet their packaging goals.  For many operations, pre-made bags continue to be the best solution; especially where large package sizes and high speeds are needed.  However, with the potential to reduce material costs by up to 40% over pre-made bags,  vertical form fill seal baggers should be considered for those operations where they fit the requirements.  For more information on the Bosch SVI and pet food packaging visit
