5 Key Benefits of Using Plastic & Paper Food Bags

By using plastic food and paper food bags, your food service establishment can experience these wonderful benefits:

1) Preservation of Food:

Commercial food bags are crucial when preserving food. Depending on the style of the bag, they can offer protection against moisture, bacteria, pests, and air, which can otherwise cause spoilage and compromise the safety of food. This ensures businesses provide quality food to customers and maintain a positive reputation.

2) Convenience:

Commercial food bags come in a variety of styles suited to different uses. Many feature flat bottoms, handles, resealable closures, and easy-open designs, making them convenient for workers and consumers.

3) Hygiene:

Commercial food bags shield food from pests, contamination, pollution, moisture, and bacteria. This reduces the risk of foodborne illnesses and ensures food hygiene and safety standards adherence.

4) Cost-Effective:

Commercial food bags save money in several ways. They limit food waste by effectively preserving freshness and reducing the need to constantly restock spoiled food. They're also available in various prices that accommodate a wide spectrum of budgets, not to mention reusable bags that make long-lasting investments!

5) Environmental Sustainability:

Many plastic and paper food bags are recyclable or biodegradable, ensuring a minimal impact on landfills and ecosystems - making them excellent for environmentally conscious businesses and customers who prioritize sustainability.

Types of Commercial Food Bags: Which Is Right for Your Business?

There are many commercial food bags suited to all kinds of food service businesses, including catering companies, take-out restaurants, commercial kitchens, grocery stores, and more. Discover the right style for your business below:

Paper Grocery Bags:

Crafted from sturdy, gusseted paper and featuring a flat bottom for stability, as seen in the General Grocery Paper Bags, paper grocery bags are ideal for carrying large quantities of groceries at once. They are perfect for grocery stores and food market stalls, offering convenience for employees packing purchases and customers carrying their groceries.

Plastic Grocery Bags:

Plastic grocery bags, like the Interplast Group Thank You Handled T-Shirt Bag, are lightweight, waterproof, and tear-resistant, making them ideal for transporting food. They also feature handles for easy carrying. Because of their durable and ergonomic features, these bags are suitable for supermarkets, convenience stores, take-out restaurants, and grocery delivery services.

Tin-Tie Paper Bags:

Tin-tie paper bags feature a fold-over top closure, often with a metal wire for easy and secure sealing. They are commonly used as baked goods packaging and coffee bags, making them ideal for cafes and bakeries.

Zipper & Slider Bags:

Zipper and slider bags, such as the Hefty Slider Bags, feature a zipper or sliding closure mechanism that ensures easy opening and resealing. They effectively keep food fresh, making these bags the perfect solution for delis, restaurants, and catering companies that need to store ingredients, pre-made meals, and leftovers.

Point of Sale (POS) Food Bags:

Either made of paper or plastic, these bags are designed for quick and convenient packaging on to-go orders. They can also feature foil to ensure food stays hot, as seen in the Bagcraft Foil Single Serve Bags, and can be grease-resistant, like the Bagcraft Ecocraft Grease-Resistant Sandwich Bags. POS food bags are perfect for food service businesses that offer to-go meals, such as food trucks, cafes, and fast-food restaurants.

Food Handling Bags & Liners:

These disposable and leak-proof bags, such as the Interplast Group Food Bags, are made with food-grade plastic and designed for handling and storing food items. Crafted from robust, tear-proof plastic, they are excellent for preventing cross-contamination and simplifying food preparation and storage. These bags are essential for restaurants, caterers, and commercial kitchens.

Vacuum Sealer Bags:

Vacuum sealer bags are intended for vacuum sealing machines. They are used to create an air-tight seal that stores a range of food, such as fresh fish, meat, vegetables, and prepared meals, and keeps it fresh for longer periods. These bags are popular among food processing facilities, catering companies, and commercial chefs.

FAQs:

Do you have a question about plastic food bags? Find the right answer below:

What Is a Food-Grade Plastic Bag?

Food-grade plastic bags are a type of packaging made either from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) or high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Both plastics are non-toxic and approved by the FDA for storing food.

LDPE packaging is a flexible and lightweight material that's used to create grocery bags, restaurant take-out bags, and trash disposal bags. This material is also stretchy and resistant to tearing, making it a great choice for customers who are seeking convenient packaging for carrying food.

HDPE packaging is denser and more suited to heavy-duty, long-life grocery shopping bags, freezer bags, and industrial food packaging, such as milk cartons and water bottles.

Discover a wide selection of plastic packaging suited to different uses, such as coffee bags, bakery bags, grocery bags, and more.

What Are the 3 Most Important Functions of Food Packaging?

The three most important functions of food packaging include (1) providing effective food protection against contamination and damage, (2) securely containing food, and (3) providing customers with nutritional information and ingredients.

Beyond these three important functions, it is also essential for food packaging to be easy to open, close, and reseal.

Whether you're seeking packaging for your business's baked goods, candy, meat, dairy, or fruit/vegetables, we have a wide selection of commercial bag styles suited to all types of foods and establishments. Explore our range today!

How Does Packaging Impact Food Quality?

Food packaging that is durable, tear-resistant, and protective plays an essential role in ensuring the quality and hygiene of food products. They create a protective barrier against spoilage, oxidation, and bacteria, which can disrupt food quality and safety.

If you're seeking effective packaging that ensures your business delivers fresh, flavorful, and safe food products, explore our commercial food packaging collection today.

What Is Primary Packing?

Primary packaging is the protective casing that's in direct contact with food products, such as plastic containers, ziplock bags, metal cans, take-out boxes, and so forth. The main function of primary packaging is to keep food fresh and protected from contaminants.

Shop a range of quality primary packaging at Buy Direct, including slider food storage bags, ice bags, and more!

What Is Secondary Packing?

Secondary packaging is an external protective layer that further shields packaged food and drinks, such as grocery bags and restaurant take-out bags. They enhance the protection of food products that are being transported while offering convenience for both seller and customer.
