Appin Bakery is proudly known for its pies, cakes and bread. With almost 400 Google Reviews, their reputation is their business. Customer safety is also primary consideration for the team when selecting a supplier. Appin Bakery wanted to choose a bread bag supplier with HACCP accreditation as assurance that non-food products, such as Duraplas plastic bags, are safe for use in their bakery. Safety is at the forefront of their decision as they also cater to specific dietary requirements.
Duraplas plastic bags are manufactured to meet the high standard of food safety and carry the HACCP certification mark. As the Duraplas bread bags have contact with food, the HACCP accreditation scheme offered Appin Bakery the assurance the bread bags are food safe.
Appin Bakery’s bread is in hot demand and needs to reach the customer hot, fresh and fast. The team needed a wicketed bread bag that would reduce handling time and provide smooth bagging operations. The bread bags also need to be strong – and keep the bread fresh for as long as possible.
Appin Bakery was looking for food safe bread bags that were made from Virgin food safe material. The brief included that the bread bags didn’t contain bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates or epoxidised soybean oil (ESBO) for example. Upac was able to offer Appin Bakery a selection of choices from both low density polyethylene (LDPE) and polypropylene (PP) bags to suit their application.
Upac was selected by Appin Bakery as their packaging partner because Upac has adhered to the same, rigorous safety standards as Appin Bakery does every day. This enables the Appin Bakery team to focus on baking amazing fresh bread knowing that the plastic bags they use are safe for their product and customers.
Not only are DURAPLAS bags safe for Appin Bakery and their customers – they are also better for the environment. Each bread bag is fully recyclable through the REDcycle program, which transforms Duraplas bags and other soft plastics into a wide range of new products. Some examples include outdoor benches and play equipment, bins and even road base.
DURAPLAS bags feature easy to recognise recycling symbols printed on all bags to help customers recycle them responsibly. The symbols are designed to be easily recognisable. The logos provide customers with all the information they need at a glance to make the right recycling choice. The symbol helps reduces the chance that Appin Bakery’s bread bags will end up in landfill.
The DURAPLAS range of LDPE polythene bags is recognised for having the most reliable and highest quality bags that ensure the safe handling, protection and containment of foods, industrial product and manufactured componentry. With a strong bottom closed seal for packaging fasteners, foods, manufactured product, painted products and more, the Duraplas range is quality guaranteed and have been in use for over 30 years in Australia.
