Burgass Carrier Bags was established in 1976 by Mr Chris Burgass is based in Nottingham, UK.
From humble beginnings as a very simple wholesale business, in very modest premises, it started with the buying and selling of unprinted, paper and polythene bags.
As the demand for custom printed bags grew, Burgass carrier bags invested in its first overprinting machinery, beginning our printing of the first bespoke designed carrier bags.
Fuelled by public concern over the environmental effect of polythene bags, the paper carrier bag market has rocketed in recent years and Burgass has responded by investing heavily in its paper production.
Many of the UK’s paper carrier bags are imported, at significant cost and carry their own hefty carbon footprint.
