Halsted Today


Since 1876, our strength has been to provide a comprehensive purchasing program for packaging distributors and bag companies. We want to be very clear: we do not solicit or sell to end-users. Our salespeople are not competing with your staff. Our team is here to help your packaging company compete in this market. We can handle the sourcing, quality control, financing, transportation logistics, customs entries and even the warehousing and distribution for your imported bags. 

We can ship containers direct to your designated location, or arrange for partial containers to be shipped from one of our warehouses. With facilities in New Jersey, Georgia, Michigan, and Oregon, we also offer our customers immediate availability to our extensive inventory.

We know that in the "Google Generation" it can be easy to find a foreign source for bags. However, it is very difficult to find a supplier with consistent quality and pricing with whom a long-term working arrangement can be maintained. Our staff is actually present several times per year in all of the factories we buy from – a crucial element for our successful relationships with suppliers. We have spent more than thirty years identifying the most economical, reliable, and quality producing factories in the world.

Our manufacturing facilities maintain the best quality standards. For standard products, we utilize factories with ISO-9000 and ISO-22,000 certifications. For more complex "Food Grade" inquirires,  our factories are BRC Food Grade Certified - a third-party audit which is recognized under the Global Food Safety Initiative. Equally important to maintaining quality facilities is our ability to buy in several different countries, which protects our distributors from potential economic and political disruptions in the market.

We encourage you to navigate our new site. Here, you'll be able to view all of our products and services. Your company will also be able to keep track of the extensive stock inventory that we maintain in warehouses throughout the country. Please do not hesitate to contact our team with any questions or inquiries. We look forward to hearing from you!
