LC Packaging opens second Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. FIBC production facility in Bangladesh

LC Packaging opened its second Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. FIBC production facility in Bangladesh. The new facility creates 650 high quality jobs and includes a 4,000 sqm state-of-the-art cleanroom that will enable the facility to double annual production capacity of high quality Food Safe and Pharma Clean FIBCs.

Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. (DBPL) is an equal joint venture between LC Packaging and local Bangladeshi shareholders. The expansion was mainly fueled by growing demand in the market and continuous investments in sales and distribution activities at LC Packaging in Europa, Africa and beyond. In addition, the commitment of the shareholders to the growth of the company is a key driver in the business expansion.

Food Safe and Pharma Clean
Abdul Mumit, Managing Director of Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd: “We see demand especially growing in value-added FIBCs in the food and pharmaceuticals industries. Our facility is highly qualified to produce these Food Safe and Pharma Clean FIBCs. The new expansion contains a 4,000 sqm state-of-the-art cleanroom to safely produce this type of packaging. Recently, DBPL has received a prolongation of their certification for the manufacturing of FIBCs for the high care food segment. A beautiful reward for the commitment to quality, multiple investments in our cleanrooms and our Foodsafe Assurance Program.”

650 high-quality jobs
The new facility is also expected to create a total of 650 additional high-quality jobs. The first 230 employees have already been engaged at the new facility. Abdul Mumit: “A significant feature of DBPL is that the job creation is aimed not just at manual production, but also value-added functions. Both product and process based R&D is carried out in Bangladesh, with critical support and collaboration from LC Packaging headquarters in The Netherlands.”

SA 8000 standards

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been built into DB’s operations from day one. “When we started our own FIBC production in Bangladesh in 2008, our aim was always to operate according to the SA 8000 standards. Now, 11 years later, we are still SA 8000 certified”. Additionally, the production facility has been awarded numerous other certifications, such as ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and FSSC 22000 for Food Safety.
