Our Range

They can also be known as FIBCs (flexible intermediate bulk containers). These are industrial containers that are made from a woven polypropylene fabric. This fabric gives the bag great flexibility, so it can easily be folded and stored away when not in use.

They can generally carry loads of 500kg up to 2,000kg, with a capacity of up to 3 cubic metres. They are ideal for storing and transporting a wide range of materials, including powders, aggregates, plastic granules, pellets and sand.

Due to its versatility, they are used in various industries. From plastic recycling to compounding, building and construction, food and animal feeds.

These can be produced for single or multi-trip use. Multi-trip bags are made from a heavier grade fabric. This is certified to allow multiple lifting, filling and discharging for reuse.

All our FIBCs can be custom-made. Allowing you to choose the size, dimension and even the mechanisms for controlling how the bags are filled and discharged. Our bags are tested and certified to meet global industry standards, ensuring conformity to the safe working load requirements.

30% rPP (Plastic Packaging Tax-compliant)

The UK’s plastic packaging tax comes into force on 1st April 2022. Any plastic packaging products which do not include a minimum of 30% recycled content will be subject to this tax. At Cliffe Packaging, we have developed compliant products for the majority of our bulk bag range.

Our dedicated sustainability team has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to developing and launching greener products. We can ensure that our full supply network can meet our demands, by using reliable and high-quality recycled polymer sources.

Food Grade

FIBCs used for storing and transporting food products are legally required to be certified to Food Grade standards. Our food grade bags are produced in a clean room environment with a low risk of contamination. Post-production, these FIBCs are stored in our storage facility that has been accredited by the BRC (British Retail Consortium).

All our food grade production facilities are audited and certified by both the BRC and the AIB. Thanks to our innovative techniques, superior machines and qualified personnel, Cliffe Packaging is able to offer premium quality products.


When using FIBCs in an electrostatic environment, we strongly recommend the anti-static variety. It is specially designed to protect against charges when filling.

Baffle Bags or Q-Bags

Occasionally, the internal pressure from products stored within standard FIBCs can cause the bags to bulge at the sides. This makes it a challenge to configure bags on shipping containers.

Baffle Bags or Q-Bags are a great solution, as they come with internal baffles sewn into the bags.

These keep the form stable once they are filled. This Allows premium usage of space and maximum payload for shipping.
