Most of us don’t wake up thinking about bulk bags (unless you’re Marty Dilworth). In fact, we often see bags as a necessity for our operations but not often a threat or an asset. When is the last time you considered the consequences of using the wrong bag?
Bulk Packaging Insights
Agriculture and polypropylene feed the world.
Yes, you read us right – agriculture and polypropylene go hand-in-hand when it comes to the storage and transportation of food.
The packaging industry is more alike to agriculture than you might have initially assumed: ongoing innovation, commitment to excellence and widespread public demand for their services have made them both integral parts of everyday life.
There is a lot of confusion surrounding what makes a bulk bag “food grade”.
Off the top of my head, I can think of the following entities that offer guidelines on food grade packaging: AIB (American Institute of Bakers), CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency), FDA (Food and Drug Administration), HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point), ISO 22000 (International Organization for Standardization), BRC (British Retail Consortium), and the latest, GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative).
