Kifuko, specializes in producing food-grade aluminium foil paper bags for the food industry.


Conventional paper bags and cotton bags food packaging often lacks adequate features to prevent food spillage, retain heat, and provide waterproofing. This can lead to messy and inconvenient experiences for consumers, as well as potential food waste.

To address this issue, we have developed environmentally friendly double-layered paper bags that offer a solution to these challenges. These innovative bags are designed to minimize food spillage, keeping the contents securely contained during transportation and handling. Additionally, they have excellent heat retention properties, ensuring that hot food stays warm for longer periods. Moreover, our paper bags incorporate a waterproofing mechanism, effectively protecting the food from moisture and potential damage. By providing these alternative packaging options, we aim to enhance the overall value and functionality of food packaging while reducing environmental impact.
