In this blog, we discuss how our products contribute to South Africa’s Agricultural Sector.
The outlook for South Africa’s agricultural sector in 2023 is not encouraging. When the numbers for gross agricultural value added in 2022 are revealed in March, they will likely indicate a slight decline from the previous year. This would be a dramatic change from the previous two years, when the industry grew by 14.9% and 8.8%, respectively.
However, Trunel Bags continues to support South African farmers and agro-industries with high-quality products that have been designed specifically for improved transport and storage of produce.
Bulk bags, plastic bags, polypropylene bags, and sheeting are all products that Trunel Bags excels at supplying to customers all throughout South Africa.

When it comes to South Africa’s agriculture sector, bulk bags, or FIBCs (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers), can play an important role in a number of ways.
Bulk bags are a practical and economical way to transport and store bulk quantities of agricultural goods like grains, seeds, fertilizer, and animal feed. They can carry up to 2,000 kg of product, are reusable, and can save money and time for farmers and agricultural businesses.
Because bulk bags may be used more than once, they produce less trash than single-use plastic bags, which is good for the environment and cheap for farmers.
Bulk bags are constructed to seal out air, moisture, and dust, all of which can degrade agricultural products during storage and transit. This helps to keep the product quality high. They are an adaptable choice for farmers and agricultural businesses due to their ability to store a wide range of agricultural items, including grains, seeds, fertilizers, and animal feed.
Compared to other storage and transport choices like barrels, sacks, and pallets, they are more affordable, making them more widely available to small-scale farmers.
