JohnPac’s bags in the IRAQ rice market.


We are a Proud American Manufacturer, but our reach is global. Walk around our manufacturing plant and distribution facility and you will find art printed on our bags in Spanish, Cantonese, and Arabic languages just to name a few. Today our plant is busy preparing bags for Iraq thanks to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

The MOU is an agreement between the United States Embassy and Iraq’s Ministry of Trade to supply rice to Iraq at competitive pricing with Iraq’s assurance of regular orders.This mutually beneficial agreement has been boosting sales for exporters of rice. Some of our most valued customers export rice to Iraq, and we are pleased to work with them, creating the woven polypropylene sacks that package the commodity of rice.
