Custom Printed Plastic Ice Bags

The FDA and most State Health departments now require proper labeling of packaged ice.


Are you complying with your State and FDA regulations?

Packaged Ice must comply with FDA ingredient requirements. Any statements made on the bag and in the marketing of the product must be accurate. 


The FDA regulations for all food package labeling require the following: 

That specific information (Statement of Identity, Net Weight, and the Manufacturer, Packer, and Distributor Information) appears in precise locations on the package.
The required information is readily viewable to a purchaser when the package is stacked in a retail freezer, and the required information is presented in specific ways.

Statement of Identity

The Statement of Identity is FDA nomenclature for the Name of the Food. For most Packaged Ice manufacturers, the Name of the Food is ICE. For example, if the ice you produce is made with Drinking Water, the name of the food is ICE. Even if the water is filtered water, the name of the food is ICE. However, if the ice you manufacture is made with 100% water purified by reverse osmosis, the name of the food is PURIFIED ICE.


The Statement of Identity may be expanded to use a food name that accurately describes the food by nature of ingredient process or ingredient addition. Important: Doing so requires that the name of the ice cannot be misleading, and the process by which it was purified must meet Code definitions and be explained directly next to the Name of the Food in a “Made with...” statement. The Statement of Identity also addresses the section of the law and FDA policy that indicates that the consumer must be able to make accurate product comparisons and selection decisions.


Net Weight

The statement must show the net contents in both U.S. Customary System terms (pounds and ounces) and metric (grams, kilograms) terms. Metric weight can be placed first or last. Net means net: exclude the weight of all packaging in determining net weight.


“The following abbreviations and none other may be employed in the required net quantity declaration: Note: Periods and plural forms shall be optional.”

ounce (oz.)

pound (lb.)

weight (wt.)

kilogram (kg)



Code of Federal Regulations, Title 16, Volume 1, Part 500

Revised January 1, 2000

Sec. 500.22 Abbreviations.

Sec. 500.23 Expression of net quantity of contents in SI Metric units  


Provide the Manufacturer, Packer, and Distributor Information

The name and location of the ice manufacturer, packer, or distributor must be on packaged ice. If the manufacturer (or other listed entity) is listed — name and address — in a city directory or recognized phone book, the inclusion of the street address is not required on the Information Panel. This information must be placed in a conspicuous place on the package if the company manufactures packs or distributes ice somewhere other than the principal business location; the principal business location is used unless doing so is misleading. It is suggested that a phone number be included for ease of contact, but it is not required. A website address may be shown on the package for consumer convenience, but it does not replace the need to adhere to the requirements above. 


Descriptions of Customized Ice Bag Styles:

Our custom drawstring ice bags are a popular choice for hospitality, retail, convenience stores, special events, and promotions. A single cotton drawstring makes closing, handling, and transporting ice cubes easy while keeping hands warm and dry while keeping the ice cold.


Custom Printed Plain Top Plastic Ice Bags

Custom-printed open-top ice bags are made from folded polyethylene sheeting, are sealed at each side, and are available with or without a bottom gusset and with or without a lip. These custom ice cube bags are commonly used for retail ice sales.


Custom Printed Plastic Ice Bags On a Wicket

Custom wicketed ice bags are packaged on a "U" shaped wire, generally in groupings of 100 to 250 bags. Originally designed for use with automated ice cube packaging machines, wicketed bags are easy to use and efficient in Semi-Automatic Packaging Machines. Custom ice bags on wickets feature a side weld with two holes in the lip on a metal wicket.
