Jute bags for packing 50 Kg foodgrains

IS Standard : IS 12650:2018

For many years, jute bags have been a reliable option for storing 50 kg of food grains because of its exceptional strength, sustainability, and breathability. Because they are made of natural jute fibers, these bags are a sustainable choice for carrying and storing food grains. Even after prolonged storage or transit, the sturdy design guarantees the safe confinement of grains. The breathability of jute bags is one of its main advantages. The natural fiber structure of jute reduces the possibility of moisture buildup and inhibits the growth of mold or spoiling by allowing enough air circulation within the bags.

Manufacturers of jute bags used to package fifty kilograms of foodgrains must adhere to IS 12650:2018. By guaranteeing product safety, quality, and adherence to food safety laws, these standards help to maintain food safety and quality during storage and transit. Food packaging bags are legally required to adhere to certain specified requirements. Producers that follow these guidelines may offer dependable and effective jute bag solutions that satisfy the food industry's packaging requirements and advance food safety and sanitation.

Note: Prior to entering the Indian market, all producers of jute bags intended to hold 50 kg of foodgrains must get the ISI Mark Certification.

Jute bags that are used to load 50 kg of foodgrains require ISI certification, which is essential since it attests to the bags' rigorous adherence to quality and safety requirements. This accreditation validates the dependability and appropriateness of Jute bags for foodgrain packaging, providing comfort to the agriculture and food distribution industries. It guarantees that foodgrains are efficiently contained and safeguarded by these Jute bags, avoiding contamination, spoiling, and spills during distribution and storage.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark.

Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
