The bag-in-the-box (BNB) packaging system is replacing the double package liner packing lines. BNB packaging uses vertical form-fill-seal baggers coupled with horizontal cartoners. Product is deposited in the bag (liner) during bag formation and is sealed prior to carton insertion. In contrast, traditional packing lines form a liner and carton around a mandrel prior to product fill. BNB equipment is more efficient and flexible, operates with wider liner material selection, and produces a higher quality cereal liner.
