What is re-marketing gunny bags?
Re-marketing gunny bags is the reselling of used gunny bags bought originally holding poultry feed.
Gunny (or burlap sacks) are made from hessian and are hard-wearing.
Because of this, the bags have resale value once used.
Why is re-marketing gunny bags important?
Remarketing gunny bags is financial efficiency.
Once you have emptied out the bags of poultry feed – they simply clutter your premises until you dispose of them.
So, in the same way as manure recycling, with gunny bags re-marketing you are making commercial use of something which otherwise would cost you remove.
The price of the used bags is not highly profitable, but it covers the cost of resale plus provides a slim gross margin on top.
Think of alternative niche uses
Whilst your used gunny bags might be rather unappealing to you,
To someone else, they might be JUST the product they are looking for to help their project along.
The more valued your used gunny bags will be, the more dependant your potential buyer will be.
In business, deals are all the more profitable if there is a real commitment at both ends.
Dig deep and research growing trends and try to ‘stumble upon’ you new niche gunny bag buyer.
(If you come across a good enough idea of what your used bags might be used for,
Why not think of a diversification project?)
Ask about buyback
If all else fails with finding a niche buyer for your gunny bags,
Why not ask your feed supplier if they will welcome a buy-back arrangement.
Think about it,
Suppliers visit your premises regularly to deliver – what if on their rounds they simply collected the used bags for recycling.
It saves them buying new replacements and it may be worth taking a little money off your next order.
