GSCSF switches to polypropylene bags for packing sugar as jute mill workers strike continues

At an annual general body meeting, Gujarat State Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories (GSCSF) has decided to use polypropylene bags for packing sugar. This decision was prompted by a prolonged strike by jute mill workers since December 14, in West Bengal that has led to a shortage in the supply of jute bags in Gujarat. It is mandatory in India to use jute bags for food packing even though jute bags are expensive compared to polypropylene bags and add to production cost of the sugar mills. A jute bag with a 100 kg capacity costs Rs 75 compared to a PP bags of the same capacity which costs around Rs 25.
