How food safety starts with picking the right industrial packaging.

Are you a supplier of liquid raw materials or liquid ingredients? Then food safety and consumer health are certainly a top priority for you. Our Bag-in-box IBCs (Pallecons) combine the advantages of several kinds of industrial packaging. Read on to find out why the industrial packaging you use is crucial to your business.

Reason 1: Your product’s integrity is guaranteed

Even in a closed pool, you can never be 100% sure that your IBCs or steel tanks won’t:

  • Mix with those of other companies supplying your customer
  • Be reused by your customers

On the other hand, if you choose to use Bag-in-box, its plastic liner (the “bag” in the Bag-in-box system) ensures your product is protected. We deliver new liners after every use, helping to ensure that your product isn’t contaminated by any other liquids that might have previously been in the bulk container.

In addition, our containers are:

  • Tagged, so CHEP is completely aware of their history
  • Cleaned to avoid contamination
  • Repaired whenever needed

Making them safe, reliable, and ready for use when you need them.
 

 

Reason 2: It can increase the shelf life of your product without the need for additives

In most cases, the pipe for a machine that processes industrial liquids is about three inches thick. At the same time, the opening of a regular intermediate bulk container is about 6 inches. If during the filling process, you simply place the pipe above the opening of the intermediate bulk container, there is a serious risk of cross-contamination.

With Bag-in-box, you can customize the bag to your customer’s unique needs, ensuring the opening in the liner is placed right under the filling pipe of your machine. We can even adapt the type of closure being used, where it is placed on the bag, and the material being used for the liner - to fit your specific filling process. This allows you to connect the IBC to your equipment, resulting in a 100% safe, aseptic filling procedure.
