The reson for the plastic bag is so that liquid Coconut Oil does not make a mess in transit from the tropics
We have to pack it in food grade plastic before placing in the bucket as the coconut oil is a complete liquid when packing in Sri Lanka . If filled straight into the pails, it can become very messy when transporting bulk!
We have a letter of certification for the pails.
FOOD GRADE CERTIFICATION & COA OF PACKAGING MATERIALS
“This is to certify that the raw materials used for the manufacture of the laminate structure given above are of food grade, and therefore it is suitable for direct food contact food packing applications.
The regulatory compliance of components are as follows.
Component Regulatory Compliance
PET US FDA 21 C.F.R. 177.1630
LLDPE US FDA 21 C.F.R. 177.1520( C )3.2 a
ADHESIVE US FDA 21 C.F.R. 175.105.
Further we use solvent less [sic] adhesive for lamination and therefore our laminates are free of retained solvents.”
We hope this explains things fully. The pail is food grade; you can pour the contents of the bag into the pail.
