What to look for in food grade buckets

If you are a business, big or small, on the lookout for plastic pails in NZ for food storage, packaging or transportation needs, you should be aware of the basic features you need from your food pails:

  • The pails have to be certified food grade from the relevant authorities
  • The pails must be tamper evident, tamper-proof, and leak-proof
  • The seal should be air-tight to prevent cross-contamination and leakage of any sort
  • They should be available in a range of sizes, with or without handles, options for coloured pails & lids
  • If you need to prevent light from passing through the pails, you can choose from white or other light blocking colours. This prevents light from passing through the buckets, which can affect the food inside. This is particularly essential for food that requires long term storage.
  • Can your supplier offer an in-mould labelling service? This is where the manufacturer can print on the pails as they are moulded. This saves you time and money instead of having to do this separately.

Here at IFP, our food grade pails meet all these criteria, and more.
