Transporting Food Products? Here’s Why You Need FIBC Bags

FIBC bags


If you work in a food manufacturing or distribution industry, you know the importance of a flexible container that can store and transport the products without the risk of damage or contamination. 

Since food products are items that people (or their pets!) eat, it critical that these packaging containers are made from non-toxic materials in a hygienic environment. In addition, you also need to ensure that no outside contamination can breach these containers during storage or shipping.

This is where FIBC bulk bags come in. 

Why Use FIBC Bags to Transport Food Products

The FIBC bags made at Palmetto Industries are designed and manufactured while adhering to several leading safety standards, including UN-certification, ISO, and FSSC 22000. This means our food-grade FIBC bags undergo rigorous testing to ensure the highest standards of quality assurance. 

We make our food-grade bulk bags from 100% virgin polypropylene material in certified clean rooms, and also sanitize the manufacturing equipment regularly with food-grade cleaners.

Regardless of what type of food items you are transporting – pet food, fruits, vegetables, canned foods, beverages, baked foods, or anything else – you can be sure they will reach their destination completely safe to consume. 

Preventing Contamination and Damage

Food products are highly sensitive in nature, so you need a packaging option that will prevent contamination and damage of all kinds while following all the proper regulations. If you are looking for food-grade jumbo bags, you will probably want some sort of certification or guarantee to ensure the bags are safe for handling food. 

And contrary to what you might think, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t certify packaging containers. Instead, this duty is performed by the Global Food Safety Initiative, American Institute of Baking, British Retail Consortium, Safe Quality Foods, and a few other organizations. Our food-grade FIBCs are certified by all of these organizations.

However, the FDA did create the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) after food-borne diseases became prevalent and various people fell ill. This standard is one of the highest safety and quality standards in the world of FIBCs. Our bags carry this FSMA certification as well.

At Palmetto Industries, we do more than just look at the cutting or sewing processes like other FIBC manufacturers. We focus on the entire manufacturing process and also what happens beyond it. This is why our food-grade bulk bags are certified from pretty much every agency you can think of. 

We pride ourselves in following the Zero-Contamination standards across all our manufacturing processes. Our product engineers and quality assurance officers go the extra mile to ensure the quality of our food-grade FIBC bags. 

And depending on your specific packaging and transportation needs, we can customize the FIBCs bags at a reasonable cost as well.
