The Importance of HACCP Approved Plastic Bags


Consumer safety is a primary consideration for both the food manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries. HACCP accreditation is a highly recognised certification that offers assurance that non-food products, such as Duraplas plastic bags, are safe for use in the production process.

Manufacturers need confidence in their entire supply chain in order to protect their reputation. Customers can be assured that by choosing a HACCP accredited supplier, that the non-food products that form part of the manufacturing process are safe from a variety of hazards. This accreditation means that the supplier has adhered to the same, rigorous safety standards as the manufacturer. This enables them to focus on operations knowing that the plastic bags used in production are safe for the product and customers.

Duraplas plastic bags are manufactured to meet a high standard of food safety and carry the HACCP certification mark identifying to demonstrate ‘fitness for purpose’ for manufacturers governed by a HACCP program.

As Duraplas bags may have contact with food, or have a significant impact on food or pharmaceutical safety in their application, the HACCP accreditation scheme offers buyers assurance that they do not pose a risk to food safety.

DURAPLAS bags are food safe and made from Virgin food safe material. They don’t contain bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates or epoxidised soybean oil (ESBO) which may be found in polycarbonate food containers and PVC based drink bottles for example.
