What Makes A Food-Grade Bulk Bag Different?

Food-grade bulk bags are a specialized type of FIBC designed specifically for food-grade products. There are three main differences between standard bulk bags and food-grade bulk bags:

  1. Materials Used in Manufacturing: Food-grade bulk bags are made from 100% virgin polypropylene resin, ensuring that no recycled materials are used, which could potentially contaminate food products.

  2. Facilities Used in Manufacturing: Food-grade bulk bags, when produced in BRC-certified facilities, are manufactured in clean rooms adhering to strict standards, ensuring they are safe for food-grade materials.

  3. Inspecting & Tracking Processes: Food-grade bulk bags undergo rigorous inspection and batch testing during manufacturing. Each batch is assigned an ID for tracking and tracing to the end user.


The Importance of GFSI

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is an industry-driven initiative providing leadership and guidance on food safety management systems across the supply chain. Established in 2000, GFSI's mission is to enhance food safety management systems, ensuring confidence in food delivery to consumers worldwide. While GFSI does not make policy or provide certification, it recognizes third-party accreditations such as:

  • BRC - British Retail Consortium

  • SQF - Safe Quality Food Institute

  • FSSC 22000 - Food Safety System Certification

  • IFS - International Featured Standards


GFSI is recognized globally as a leader in food safety initiatives, guiding food-related companies in safe food handling practices. Refer to Standard FIBC vs. Food Grade FIBC - Comparison Chart below.

BRC Certified Facilities

BRC Global Standards are a fundamental requirement for retailers globally and are recognized by GFSI. BRC certification guarantees that manufacturers follow specific quality, safety, and operational standards, ensuring legal compliance and consumer protection. To be BRC certified, facilities must pass rigorous inspections and adhere to standards including:

  • Proper ventilation

  • Pest control

  • Metal detection

  • Light table inspection

  • Record keeping

  • Proper personnel hygiene

  • HACCP program


Transparency and reliability are key attributes of a good bulk bag supplier. Reputable suppliers should provide manufacturing details and allow facility tours.


Finding the Right Food Grade Bulk Bag Supplier

When choosing a bulk bag supplier, especially for food-grade FIBCs, consider the following:

  1. Avoid False Claims: Ensure suppliers do not falsely claim FDA approval or GFSI accreditation for bulk bags.

  2. Verify Materials: Ensure food-grade bulk bags are made with 100% virgin polypropylene resin.

  3. Transparency: A credible supplier should be transparent about their manufacturing processes and facilities.

  4. Industry Experience: Choose suppliers with experience in the food industry and ask for references.

  5. Third-Party Certification: Ensure suppliers' facilities meet GFSI minimum standards, such as BRC certification.

With this comprehensive approach, Six Star Bulk Bag ensures the highest quality and safety for your food-grade bulk bag needs.

Food Grade Bulk Bags: A Great Choice for Commercial Food Companies

Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBCs) are widely used in food manufacturing and processing plants. Food-grade bulk bags are an excellent option for transporting and storing food and related products. Here are the five biggest reasons why successful commercial food companies prefer food-grade bags over other handling methods.

Reason #1: Made From FDA Approved Materials

Food-grade bulk bags are made from 100% virgin polypropylene resin, meeting the standards outlined by the FDA for contact with food-grade materials. The use of 100% virgin resin ensures that no recycled materials are included in the bags, preventing potential contamination of the food.

For more information on the importance of 100% virgin polypropylene resin, click here.


Reason #2: Safe for Food Contact - BRC Certified

When sourcing food-grade bags, ensure they are manufactured in a BRC-certified facility. BRC certification, recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) since 1998, ensures that the bags are produced in clean rooms and that the facilities meet stringent safety standards.

GFSI is a non-profit foundation aimed at globalizing the food safety process, supported by many of the world’s largest food manufacturers. GFSI also recognizes third-party safety schemes such as:

  • Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI)

  • Food Safety System Certification 22000

  • International Featured Standards (IFS)


Reason #3: Cost Effective

FIBCs offer cost-effective and versatile bulk packaging options. These bulk bags can hold thousands of pounds (up to 4,000 lbs.) and can be handled safely by various vehicles, including forklifts, cranes, and hoists. Unused FIBCs can be folded into a compact size, making them easy to store and saving valuable warehouse space and money.


Reason #4: Reusable and Recyclable

Made from 100% virgin polypropylene resin, food-grade bags are recyclable. Additionally, some bags are designed for multiple uses. Bags with a 6:1 safety factor ratio can be reused within a “Closed Loop” system where they are cleaned, reconditioned, and qualified for reuse for the same product in the same application.

Reason #5: Variety of Design Options

FIBCs are highly versatile, offering various filling and discharging options, bag bottom options, and a wide range of cubic foot capacities and safe working loads. They can carry almost any bulk material and can be custom-built to fit your specific product and application needs.
