Cellulose film packaging is a bio-compostable packaging solution manufactured from wood or cotton, both of which are easily compostable. Besides cellulose film packaging extends the shelf life of fresh produce products by controlling the moisture content.
Cellulose-based materials, like paper and board, are commonly used in packaging. They are light-weight, durable, bio-based and easily recyclable which have made them a popular packaging material.

What are the benefits of cellulose products?
It is created from cellulose harvested from plants, it is a sustainable product sourced from bio-based, renewable resources.
Cellulose film packaging is biodegradable. Tests have shown that cellulose packaging biodegrades in 28–60 days if the product is uncoated and 80–120 days if coated. It also degrades in the water in 10 days if it’s uncoated and around a month if it’s coated.
Biodegradable cellophane bags resist moisture and water vapor, making them an excellent choice for displaying and storing food items.
It is heat sealable. With the right tools, you can quickly and easily heat seal and protect food products stored in cellophane bags.
When handling cellulose films at the time of preserving, transporting and processing—temperature, humidity and pressure, etc. affect the cellulose film's quality. It is recommended to use them following each of the terms below.
①Temperature and humidity
Temperature around 20 degrees Celsius and humidity around 55% are the most appropriate storage environment conditions for cellulose films. For use in winter, it is preferable to use them after keeping them wrapped in a temperature and humidity-controlled room for over 24 hours.
②Store in a place where direct sunlight can be avoided.
③Avoid placing materials directly on the floor. Stack them on shelves.
④Do not apply extreme loads on the materials during storage.
Avoid stacking in tiers as much as possible. Avoid stacking laterally to prevent shape deformation.
⑤Do not unwrap until immediately before use. (Re-wrap in high moisture-proof films, such as aluminum-metallized film to store unused remaining parts.)
⑥Ideally, the storing period should be 60 days or less.
⑦Handle with care to prevent scratches from impacts and flaws on the edges.
It is seen most often in the food and beverage industry, pharmaceuticals, personal care, home care, and retail sectors. Using cellulose to create biodegradable products that can replace petroleum-based plastics will reduce the impact these packaging materials have on the environment. Bioplastics are biodegradable or compostable plastics made from natural substances instead of petrolem. The idea is that these new, earthier plastics can replace the harmful ones in our food and around our home.
If you currently use plastic bags for candies, nuts, baked goods, etc., cellulose packaging bags are a perfect alternative. Made from cellulose derived from wood pulp, our bags are strong, crystal clear and certified compostable. We have been got FSC certificate and the compostable certificate.
We offer two styles of biodegradable cellophane bags in a variety of sizes: Flat cellulose bags, Gusseted cellulose bags
The cellulose bag can print FSC logo on it.
Cellulose film is created from the cellulose taken from cotton, wood, hemp, or other sustainably harvested natural sources. It starts as a white dissolving pulp, which is 92%–98% cellulose.
1. Keep the original packaging away from heat and direct sunlight.
2. Storage conditions: temperature: 17-23°C, relative humidity: 35-55%;
3. The product should be used up within 6 months from the delivery date.
4. Follow the first-in first-out principle. It should be transferred to the processing workshop 24 hours before use.
1. The two sides of the package are reinforced with cardboard or foam, and the whole periphery is wrapped with air cushion and wrapped with stretch film;
2. All around and at the top of the wooden support are sealed with stretch film, and the product certificate is pasted on the outside, indicating the product name, specification, batch number, length, number of joints, production date, factory name, shelf life, etc.Inside and outside the package must be clearly marked the direction of unwinding.
