Woven Bags made from natural fibers for cereals and pulses – Specification

This Kenya Standard was prepared by the Yarns and Fibers Technical Committee under the guidance of the Standards Projects Committee, and it is in accordance with the procedures of Kenya Bureau of Standards.

Cereals and pulses are generally packed in natural fibre bags. This standard has been prepared to meet the need to preserve the quality of the packed product and the need for constructional suitability of the bags. Since cereals/pulses have different densities and sizes, the standard addresses the common weights and the corresponding sizes of bags suitable for packing them. The strength of bags, being an important handling parameter, is also addressed in the standard.
