This means that it’s important to look further than a simple statement of FDA compliance because a supplier can say just about anything! Here are three key things to keep in mind:
- A supplier’s certifications: If a supplier has certain credentials, you can trust that their bags are food grade. (We’ll go into more detail about the certifications to look for later.)
- The presence of third-party audits: These audits help ensure that a facility exhibits zero contamination.
- The importance of a clean manufacturing environment: Did you know that bag contamination usually happens after initial bag creation? It’s not enough for a bag’s components to be clean—the environment matters too! Both certifications and third-party audits can help give you the confidence you need to proceed with a food-grade bulk bag order.
