Guide to Choosing the Best Bulk Bag Supplier


In the world of packaging, bigger is almost always better. The Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC), sometimes known as a Bulk Bag, was created in the 1940s. Since then, FIBCs have been increasingly popular. There are many various applications for polypropylene bags because of their durable construction, low cost, and versatility.

What do you need to think about when you buy these bags and which suppliers will meet your needs best? At Trunel Bags we value your business and hope these buying guidelines will help you make the best choice.

What type of bulk bag supplier to choose?


What bag you should choose?


Large bags come in all shapes and sizes, as well as different materials. The first thing you need to keep in mind when it comes to shopping in bulk is that you should only purchase bags that you use up in a significant amount. Choosing the wrong bulk bag size is the most common error consumers make. Your loading and unloading process, will be hindered if your bags are the wrong size. The bulk bag's capacity is determined by the product's density and the weight of the contents it will hold.

What are the bags made of?


Typical bulk bag manufacturing materials include plastic, polypropylene, and polyethylene. Preliminary research into the contents and manufacturing method of a bulk bag will prevent you running any risks of a wrong buy. Chemicals such as dioxins and other particles found in some bulk bags have the potential to harm human health if they are not properly handled and discarded.


Will the bags be re-used?


Reusing FIBC Bulk bags for food or chemical products should be a careful and considered decision. Even though it is encouraged to recycle bulk bags, it is crucial to be aware that polypropylene fabric bags need to be reused with extreme caution, particularly if you are keeping food or chemical items. This is especially important to keep in mind if you are storing the bulk bags. Because of the potential for contamination, it is not advisable to reuse bulk bags for the transportation and storage of potentially contaminated commodities such as sugar, salt, pet food, or medications.


How big should the bags be?


Bulk bags come in a wide range of sizes. As one of South Africa's leading polypropylene bag suppliers, Trunel Bags can hold anything weighing between 12.5 kilograms and 1.5 tons. The level of robustness and ductility in the bag's construction are the two most important factors when determining weight capacity. Polypropylene bags are more durable than other options, which is why we use polypropylene strips that are firmly woven into our bags to create an extraordinarily strong material.


Choose a reliable supplier


To maintain a continuous supply of bulk bags, you will need to find a reliable supplier. Consider the supplier's history, the manner in which they conduct business, the degree of expertise they have on the subject of bulk bags, and the quality standards that they have attained when you are searching for a supplier. Your provider of bulk bags will provide you with detailed instructions on how to make the most of the various options at the best price.



It is essential that you use the bulk bags in accordance with the instructions provided so that you do not cause any unwanted harm to the bags and also so that you use them for the maximum output they were designed for.
