FIBC Bulk Bags

Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC), also known as FIBC bulk bags or super sacks, are large industrial sacks for storing and transporting dry, flowable materials in bulk quantities.

FIBC bulk bags typically feature four lifting loops on the top of the bag, facilitating convenient handling with forklifts, cranes, or other lifting devices. Widely employed in agriculture, construction, mining, chemicals, food processing, and pharmaceuticals, these durable sacks offer recyclability and reusability, rendering them an eco-conscious packaging choice.
Codefine is both a manufacturer and distributor of FIBC bulk bags and has helped businesses across industry verticals to choose packaging bags with less environmental footprint.

Codefine's Products


CSD® (Codefine Super Dustproof) is an exclusive, patented technology developed by our company to pack ultra-fine powders. Our proprietary, patented sewing process and material give CSD bags a premium sift-proofing. Unlike traditional dustproof, CSD requires no ribbon or felt, and therefore eliminates the risk of contamination of your products. CSD® bags are produced under strict food grade conditions. They are made out of proprietary laminated fabric, offering lab-proven protection against bacteria and moisture.

CSD Type 3

CSD type 3 is an evolutionary, more robust product of CSD that maintains the premium sift-proof qualities. Thanks to its patented combination of layers in the corners of the bag, the product is not in contact with the seams and eliminates thus risk of contamination of the product. It is particularly suitable for sensitive products, and offers a seamless bag at a competitive price.

Easylift Type 3

Easylift Type 3 is the ultimate pallet-less bag. It allows you to easily handle, load, and ship your goods without the need for pallets, leading to significant savings for your business.
