Jute bags for packing 50 Kg sugar

IS Standard : IS 15138:2010

It has long been known that jute bags are a great option for packing bulk goods, such as 50-kg sacks of sugar. These bags are a great choice for storing and shipping sugar and other agricultural products since they are robust, long-lasting, and eco-friendly. The exceptional strength and durability of their natural fiber content, which comes from the jute plant, guarantees the secure containment of the sugar throughout storage and transit. Because these bags are breathable, appropriate air circulation is possible. Additionally, jute bags naturally block ultraviolet (UV) radiation, providing protection for light-sensitive items from sunlight exposure while in storage or transit.

For producers of jute bags used to package 50 kg of sugar, IS 15138:2010 is essential. By guaranteeing product safety, quality, and adherence to food safety laws, these standards help to maintain food safety and quality during storage and transit. Adherence to these guidelines assists producers in upholding quality control throughout their manufacturing procedures, diminishing discrepancies in the caliber of their output. 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: In order to package 50 kg of sugar in jute bags for the Indian market, manufacturers must get the necessary ISI Mark Certification.

The ISI certification means that these bags have passed strict testing and meet the BIS's strict requirements, which are designed to assess the bags' strength, durability, and appropriateness for packing sugar. It guarantees that the sugar will be efficiently contained and protected in these Jute bags, avoiding contamination, spoiling, and spills throughout distribution and storage. This certification is a major factor in guaranteeing the quality and accessibility of sugar as a vital food item in India. It provides reassurance to the sugar business as well as consumers by validating the dependability and appropriateness of Jute bags for sugar packaging.


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. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. 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.
