Brief Guidelines for Food Grade FIBCs
When determining whether the type of FIBC is ideal for your industry, your need to consider several factors. One of the most important considerations involves determining the bag ideal for your application and the products you pack, store and transport in the bag. It is especially important when transporting and storing materials sensitive to environmental contamination, and the food industry fits perfectly into the category.
How is Food-grade Bags Different from Normal FIBC?
Food grade is a generic term that has different meanings for different people. Food industries utilize these special bags for packaging, storing, and transporting food items like sugar, grains, powders, and more. They are different from normal FIBCs in the following ways.
Manufacturers design food-grade FIBCs using 100% virgin polypropylene resin. The resin is free from recycled materials. Using 100% virgin polypropylene resin ensures that harmful materials are absent in the resin that might contaminate the food products. Above all, virgin resin meets the standards and certifications for contact with food.
Manufacturers manufacture these bags in facilities certified by BRCGS. They design these bags in clean and hygienic conditions and maintain a strict quality standard. BRC-certified facilities have proper pest control and ventilation, detailed record keeping, strict personal hygiene, light table inspection, and bag cleaning through the air and metal detection.
Vigilant Inspection and Tracking
The manufacturers take no chances with the quality while producing food-grade FIBC bags. Therefore, each bag undergoes a rigorous testing process wherein each has a unique ID and is tracked right from the raw materials to its delivery to the food industries.
Essential Qualities of Food-Grade FIBCs
The following are the essential qualities that Food-grade FIBCs must possess. These include:
Third-party certifications like BRC ensures an additional level of quality, cleanliness, and trust in the product. The high-level requirements of such an agency ensure that manufacturers design the FIBCs in a clean room and measures like pest control, metal detection, vacuum air cleaning, and record keeping.
The Food Safety Modernization Ac, created by the FDA, states that all the products with the certification promise good and safe quality products that are ideal for transporting food materials.
Manufacturers must keep the storage capacity of food-grade FIBCs in mind. If you load the bag beyond the specified weight, the bag might experience damage by spoiling the food products.
Different foods have different requirements. Therefore, companies must also follow specific packing, storing, and transporting demands. Manufacturers need to design the bags keeping in mind these needs and demands.
