As bulk bags are being used more frequently in food, pharma, and chemical industries, there are more and more questions about the actual limitations of these versatile bags. The demand for bags that can withstand high temperatures and dangerous chemicals is rising. In this blog, we explain more about the possibilities of using FIBCs for high-temperature and hazardous products.
FIBCs are not only great for your product but also your business. These bulk bags are not just environmentally friendly, versatile and practical, you can also add cost-effective to that list. They make transportation and storage easier and reduce shipping costs. In this blog, we share 5 ways Bulk Bags cut your costs.
As we explained in our previous blogs: it’s the inside that counts. Modified Atmosphere not only protects your product from pests, contamination and oxidation, it also keeps it fresh for longer periods of time, without compromising taste or color. Without any added chemicals, but merely by changing the composition of gasses inside the Big Bag. That’s why it’s all the more important to keep the package intact.
Oxygen as the enemy: it seems like a big contradiction, but in the food industry it couldn’t be truer. Food producers have known for decades that exposing food to air, particularly the oxygen in the air, will reduce the shelf life of food products. The oxygen enables bacteria and bugs to grow, damaging the food. And if it’s not small insects, it is oxidation that forms a threat to the quality of food: it causes foods to go off, i.e. fats and oils becoming rancid.
In the world of packaging, bigger often is better. In the 1940s, the Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container was introduced, also known as the FIBC or Big Bag. Their forerunners were made from PVC and mainly used by rubber industry companies for the transport of black carbon. Since then, the use of big bags has spread many other industries due to the development of the packaging and its possibilities in the years that followed.
