Plastic Bag Manufacturers Can Meet Your Packaging Needs

Plastic bag manufacturers supply a vast range of clients in South Africa.  For normal people, plastic bags are synonymous with the grocery store.  The plastic bag has seen its fair share of changes over the years and one of the most memorable ones were when free bags were outlawed and new, thicker, stronger and paid-for bags replaced them.  These types of bags are far tougher than the old ones and can be re-used several times.  Grocery bags can also be bought in bulk and printed on – as the large grocery stores do.

Besides these “shopping” bags, the plastic bag manufacturers also produce other types of plastic bags for other uses.  Chief among these are the knitted, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and the woven virgin polypropylene bags that are used for packing fruit and vegetables that need to be aerated.  Circular woven bags are also made from virgin polypropylene, but they are treated with anti-UV additives to ensure that they will have a life expectancy of at least three months.  Nurseries also use plastic plant bags and these are especially strong; sizes range from one litre to 18.8 litres.

Plastic packaging solutions have not completely overtaken paper bags and these are still preferred in some industries; potatoes are exclusively packed in paper bags, as are dried meat products like biltong and drywors.  Cardboard packaging is preferred for fruits and vegetables that bruise easily, like tomatoes, strawberries and grapes.

The International Group of Companies has been manufacturing packaging solutions in South Africa for over sixty years.  Besides being plastic bag manufacturers, we offer cardboard packaging solutions, moulded plastic products like chairs, basins and dustbins, as well as twines and an extensive range of hardware and protective clothing.  For more information on how we can help you today, contact us.
