Protecting Bulk Foods During Transit: A Look at Food Grade Container Liners

Transporting bulk foods across great distances is a complex process fraught with challenges. Maintaining the integrity, cleanliness, and safety of dry bulk goods during shipping is paramount, and shipping container liners exist to solve this problem.

Food grade container liners have revolutionised the logistics of transporting foods and grains, providing an essential layer of protection between bulk food products and the shipping container itself. In this article, we’ll take a look at the variety of benefits that container liners provide in protecting and preserving quality during storage and transportation.

Why Are Food-Grade Container Liners So Crucial?

The inside of a shipping container is not always the clean environment you might hope for when transporting dry food products. From grain to seeds, these products must be protected from any potential contaminants, failure to do so can have a knock on effect for businesses and can often prove to be financially damaging. Container liners offer a barrier that guards against contamination from the container’s interior and any cross-contamination from previous cargoes.

Our standard woven polypropylene liners are built to comply with food safety regulations, these liners ensure that the food remains in a condition that’s safe for consumption upon arrival.

Customisation for Optimal Protection

One size does not fit all in the world of shipping container liners. Our liners are tailor-made to fit the inner dimensions of 20ft, 30ft, and 40ft containers, ensuring that every inch of the space is utilised, making the most of the space and leaving no room for contamination. This customization extends to the features of the liner, which can include loading and discharge spouts tailored to your specific loading and unloading processes.

Our range of shipping container liners include door fill/discharge spouts for automated access and egress, making loading and unloading large amounts of dried food products becomes a much more cost-efficient process.

We also manufacture polyethylene container liners for free flowing chemicals, foodstuffs, starches or sugars, and thermal container liners, offering protection for temperature sensitive items during transit. Our container liners are designed for use in agricultural, pharmaceutical and chemical environments. 

Maintaining Quality Standards

When it comes to transporting food, health and safety cannot be compromised. Properly manufactured shipping container liners ensure that food products are transported in a contaminant-free environment, complying with the food safety regulations of both origin and destination. They protect dry goods from moisture, pests, and other potential sources of cross-contamination. By using these liners, exporters can avoid costly waste due to spoilage, and maintain consumer trust. Adhering to health and safety standards is not just a regulatory compliance issue; it’s a cornerstone of public health and a pivotal to a company’s reputation in the global food market.

Our shipping container liners meet the highest quality standards, designed to maintain the integrity of the food from point A to point B. They are durable, resistant to tears and punctures, and impermeable to moisture and odours, ensuring that the food inside remains dry, fresh, and uncontaminated by external smells or substances.
