While bulk packaging has been a mainstay in the food industry for decades, it has recently become popular among individual consumers. These customers show increasing interest in purchasing not only prepackaged bulk foods at club stores and similar outlets but also in obtaining their own containers to buy unpackaged bulk items. Because of this, it’s important to identify a quality food packaging provider like Econo-Pak.

With more than 30 years of experience across the packaging industry, we have the equipment and skill to package bulk foods of nearly any size or quantity. These characteristics let us efficiently and consistently meet precise specifications while adhering to high standards of quality and safety.


Bulk packaging offers many advantages for both manufacturers and consumers, such as:


By buying in bulk, this type of packaging promises an inexpensive alternative, decreasing material and labor costs. These savings are then passed on to the customer, leading to a lower grocery bill and a happier consumer.


By its very nature, bulk packaging decreases the amount of waste produced by the overall food packaging process. Bundling more food into a single container limits the amount of material used to transport the same amount of product. This benefit extends to environmental impacts as well as decreased labor costs and increased convenience for consumers.


A decrease in waste translates into environmental improvements. Bulk packaging also tends to be reusable, and consumers decrease the amount of packaging they purchase when buying in bulk. An investment in this packaging represents an investment in the environment, bringing with it the corresponding sense of corporate responsibility that encourages repeat customers.


Small or individual packages of food tend to obscure the quantity available, which isn’t appealing to consumers. Bulk packaging offers transparency—it’s immediately obvious how much food is being sold for a given price.


Bulk packaging can be applied to an array of food products. No matter how challenging your specifications, we will design and manufacture a suitable encasement. We offer a range of sizes of bags, flow wraps, cartons, gusset bags, and other containers, offering the flexibility to support any product. Examples include:

  • Biscuits

  • Candy
  • Powders
  • Chocolates
  • Grains
  • Cookies
  • Crackers
  • Water
