Marriage's Flour

Marriage’s is a well-established British flour producer, with plenty of variety for home bakers and experts alike. They came to Law Print in search of a new reliable paper bag supplier for their Finest Plain White, Organic Strong White and Strong White Bread flour types.

Marriage’s have been milling their award-winning flours in Essex for almost 200 years. Today, they combine technology and tradition to produce expertly milled flour that gives bakers consistent results.

As the agent of Italian paper bag manufacturer Cartotecnica Postumia, we worked really closely with Marriage’s at their site to ensure that the transition went smoothly.  As part of the process, Law Print needed to adapt the bags to suit Marriage’s existing packing lines, which effectively met their supply chain requirements and marked the start of a very successful new partnership.

Based in Essex, they’re surrounded by the ideal soil and weather conditions for growing premium wheat with the right levels of protein and moisture. They take great pride in sourcing wheat from trusted farmers within 30 miles of Chelmer Mill, and have worked closely with these farming families for generations.

Flour has historically been packed in tightly woven fabric sacks, which were then utilised in different household items such as tea towels. Since then, things have moved on and like any other industries, flour products have evolved to respond to the market demands and consumer trends. Bakery products are now traditionally packed in SOS paper bags, with a block bottom base for stability, and are either heat-sealed or just rolled down and glued.

Marriage’s wanted a conventional paper bag suitable for their range of products but printed with strong, yet simple designs that would appeal to an eco-conscious generation of consumers looking for diverse flour types adapted to their dietary needs, without the fuss of over-complicated brands.

Paper bags can be manufactured from a wide range of paper types with 1-3 plies. From machine-finished to clay-coated paper, Law Print can specify the right thickness and finish to suit your product applications. You can add lamination to the bag, or give it an edge with a lacquer finish. If your product speaks for itself, you can also add windows. Handles give an extra helping hand to your customers too!

As well as meeting the exacting food-grade standards that brands require, Law Print can provide fully recyclable options and responsibly sourced paper solutions. With production capacity and paper shortage still being part of the current global supply chain issues, if you want to discuss your paper bag project, don’t delay it and give a call to our sales team in the UK right now!


Over the last few years, Law Print has developed a vast portfolio of flour packaging with key British milling institutions such as Marriage’s. From own brands to private labels for retailers, we have supplied large volumes of conventional SOS paper bags to the industry, all manufactured by our Italian factory partner, Postumia. As their exclusive agent for the UK & Ireland since 2018, we have ensured continuity in the supply of paper bags to our old and new customers within the flour sector but also for many other product applications that require all-paper or paper-coated solutions.
