Paper bags without handles – perfect for food packaging

Food grade paper bags for food packaging

Paper bags without handles help you pack food ecologically and easily. This type of paper bags, such as flat paper bags and SOS paper bags, can be used for bread and other food packaging, handicrafts, jewellery packaging, or for postal deliveries and are made in Finland from high-quality food-grade paper. We make these paper bags in brown and white – from small 1/2 kilo bags to 5kg bread bags.

We offer the best paper bags on the market for all foods. Foods packaged in paper bags communicate better quality and responsibility than those packaged in plastic. As part of our mission to reduce plastic waste, our product range only includes plastic-free paper bags in different strengths. We produce paper bags in our own production line, which means you can order small batches and precisely the number of products you need each time – conveniently from our online store at wholesale prices. We offer fast delivery and small batch orders of 250-1,000 items.

The Carccu story

The Carccu® story is one of Finnish entrepreneurship and a passion for finding the most efficient packaging solution to support our customers’ brands. The company’s current name is derived from the small village community of Karkku located near the Finnish town of Sastamala in the Rautavesi national landscape. Olli Borg, who is still involved in the company’s operations, assembled the first printing press at EPP-Pack Oy’s premises at the Karkku site in the 1980s.

What came next is an eminent part of Finnish flexographic printing history, and, today, we develop our business feet firmly on the ground and our eyes focused on the future. From the beginning, Carccu has also focused on the international market, which has resulted in a long tradition of export trade. Over the years, pioneering vision and innovation have made our company Finland’s leading printing house specializing in customized packaging solutions.

Even though the world has changed, some things remain the same at Carccu – a love of entrepreneurship and a desire to understand the pressing business needs of our customers.

“We are grateful for our roots as a family business, which has been operating for half a century, and for the work of previous generations of entrepreneurs. We also cherish the heritage of handicraft in our work, and our highly dedicated workers have years of solid experience and exceptional technical expertise,” says Lasse Borg, CEO and fourth-generation entrepreneur.
