LC Packaging has been in de jute trade since 1923. Because jute is a natural crop, climate (and climate change) can have a big impact on its cultivation. While the popularity of jute as a material for consumer goods such as reusable shopping bags and applications in carpets and upholstery has grown tremendously, changes in weather patterns have had a negative impact on the availability of jute fibre in the recent past.
As a result, securing a constant flow of high quality jute and ultimately jute bags is a true juggling act. Especially with local lockdowns due to COVID-19. By closely monitoring such developments – together with our long-term production partners – we are able to adapt, respond and anticipate the long term. Based on close consultation with our customers regarding their anticipated volumes of jute bags, we have various long-term strategies in place.
As circumstances may seem complex, let’s take a closer look at the developments in Bangladesh and India.
