Speed of Delivery

How do you keep a global operation running in a time of global disruption? You’d be forgiven if 2020-2021 wasn’t the time in history when you opened a business that depends on supply lines that stretch across regional and even country borders. Between the pandemic slowing production of key parts and supplies and logistical headaches such as 2021’s Suez Canal blockage, it might be simpler to tighten your focus and leave the big thinking to a later year. And that doesn’t even take into account comparatively more mundane disruptions like hurricanes and floods.

The worst thing that can happen to any bag, paper or woven polypropylene, is that it fails, either through tearing and puncture or through the common shipping or shelving incident of drops. 

5 reasons manufacturers demand pinch-bottom bags

More and more, manufacturers of consumer goods that come in large packages are looking for the capability of producing pinch-bottom bags at scale. These bags are used for pet food, farm animal feed, charcoal, bird feed, firewood and other products. Why are such familiar names as Purina, Frontier, Paws & Claws, Scott Pet, and others demanding pinch-bottom bags to distribute and sell their products?

Is your pet food bag good for the environment? Turns out it is.

If you’ve ever hefted a large pet food bag into a shopping cart, you may have wondered: Is this packaging good for the environment. The simple answer: Yes, you can be sure your pet food bag is environmentally friendly if it’s made of woven polypropylene. Woven polypropylene, which uses spun plastic (polypropylene) threads to create bags and other materials, is characterized by these features:

In addition to being lighter and stronger than paper and other types of plastic bags, Anduro’s woven polypropylene bags (also known as BOPP bags) are more environmentally friendly.

INTRODUCING THE Durofab™ PINCH CLOSURE BAGS

Polypropylene BOPP bags have revolutionized pet food packaging. Now comes technology to revolutionize BOPP packaging. The Durofab™ Pinch-Closure Bag is produced on newly developed dedicated machinery that delivers customized step-cut ends, a single-folded closure that translates into a host of marketing and product performance improvements.

PRINTING: PROTECTING YOUR BRAND

One of the main reasons feed and seed producers are moving from paper to polywoven packaging is their appeal in the retail environment. Functionally, polywoven or BOPP/WPP bags are stronger and more durable than paper, enough reason to switch. But they also print beautifully to be much more inviting to the eye of the consumer.

BENEFITS OF BUYING DIRECT FROM THE MANUFACTURER

Woven BOPP bags have become the packaging gold standard for animal feeds, and increasingly for pet food. Because woven bags are so much more durable than multi-wall paper, from filling to distribution to retail and the end customer, demanding retailers, like Walmart, require suppliers who want shelf space to use woven bags. And because the graphics are so much sharper and more colorful, producers have turned to laminated BOPP packaging to be competitive in the marketplace.

FABRIC WEIGHTS & MEASUREMENTS

Of the many elements that go into making BOPP/WPP bag packaging, fabric weight has the most impact on price. Typically, BOPP bag manufacturers measure fabric weight in grams per square meter (GSM). For a long time, 85 GSM was the norm for BOPP bags. That has trended downward to 75 GSM; some producers are running 65 GSM or even 55 GSM bags on their filling equipment. Obviously, the lower the weight, the less fabric, and therefore, the lower your per-bag cost.

FINISHING & PACKAGING:

All the good work done in manufacturing and printing your BOPP bags can be for naught if they are not finished and packaged properly. Poor finishing touches or shabby packing and palletizing will diminish product integrity and create problems in the filling process.
