With the development of the economy and the improvement of people's quality of life requirements, they are paying more and more attention to their physical condition. Because there are words called and from the mouth, modern medical research is also superficial, 80% of the diseases are not caused by food hygiene, so people have a strict choice of packaging materials for food.

In the nineteenth century, when the large-scale retail industry was not yet born, people's shopping habits usually procured everything they used in the grocery store near the place where they live or work. Due to the limitations of science and technology at the time, these items were shipped to various grocery stores in wooden barrels, wooden boxes or cloth bags. Although this did not affect the purchase of the grocery store, it would leave a major problem. Giving a grocery store. That is how to sell these goods conveniently and easily to ordinary consumers, especially the packaging problem.


At that time, when people went out to buy things, they always brought their own baskets or homemade linen bags to hold the items, which was very inconvenient. Food paper bags can not meet the demand, because the raw materials for papermaking were jute fiber and worn linen head. The quality is not guaranteed, the quantity is very rare, and even the printing of newspapers cannot be satisfied. Later, a German invented the technology of using wood pulp to make paper, which promoted the development of the paper industry and brought the gospel to the food paper bag, and gave birth to the first commercial paper bag. Then the Americans invented the paper bag making machine, which provided the basis for the large-scale production of food paper bags and quickly spread to other countries. Following the mature use of paper bag stitching technology, food paper bags have also played an increasingly important role in the packaging industry.
