Many industries use plastic bags. The normal, soft type of plastic bag is perhaps the most common; it is the humble grocery bag. These are manufactured in a wide range of colours and can be printed with any design or logo for branding purposes. These soft bags used to break very easily, but South African legislation has outlawed these fragile bags many years ago and today, retail outlets are only allowed to supply the stronger bag type and charge consumers accordingly. Of course, nurseries also use plastic plant bags.
Whereas fomo trays are popular for seedlings, larger plants are sold in plastic plant bags that may vary in capacity from one litre to nearly nineteen litres for plants of many sizes. Plastic bags are ideal for this purpose because they are inexpensive and tough. Another type of popular plastic bag used widely in industry and in the fresh produce sector is the woven circular bag, which is made of virgin polypropylene and is available in a variety of colours. It can also be imprinted with any design or branding.
There are two types of mesh-like bags too, which are also sorted under plastic bags. The woven vegetable pocket is also made of virgin polypropylene while the knitted pocket is made of high-density polyethylene. Both these types of bags are ideal for fresh produce that requires a lot of ventilation. The bags are strong and because they are mesh, they require less material to make.
