The fertilizer industry in South Africa has an important role to play in national growth. Fertilizer boosts the nutrients available to crops, which leads to better agricultural yield and more food available for the country and foreign export. This granular product is manufactured in bulk quantities by agricultural companies, such as Omnia, so high-quality flexible storage containers are needed.

Custom Bulk Bags (CBB) is able to meet the bulk packaging demands for South Africa’s fertilizer industry. We manufacture and supply woven polypropylene bags that can safely transport and store large quantities of fertilizer – up to two tonnes of weight or two cubic metres of volume. Our bulk bags are customisable, which enables us to cater to the exact needs of our clients.

The fertilizer industry in South Africa

The fertilizer industry in South Africa is estimated to be worth R10 billion, making it a large contributor to the country’s economy. It is believed that around two million tonnes of fertilizer are produced every year in South Africa for the local market. Storing and transporting this output in an effective manner is a key decision for agricultural brands and commercial farmers.

Therefore, it is crucial that fertilizer is stored in a bulk bag that can offer safety and ease of use. The strength and safety of our bulk bags are a core priority for CBB. Our bulk bags have a minimum of 5:1 safety factor, which means that they are able to carry at least five times their intended load without breaking.
