Bakery Packaging Closures

Just as flour and yeast are staple baking ingredients, a Bedford Twist Tie® is essential to bread bag and bakery reclosability.

The easy-to-use twist tie is our tried and true bag closure, helping bakeries meet rising consumer’s demands for product longevity. Maybe you want your closure to clip. We can do that too, with our latest line of CloseIt® clips, tags, and flags!

Whether it twists or it clips, customize the closure to your heart’s content!

Our pallet of colored twist ties and special patterns helps keep bakeries organized. The wire twist ties can be completed with all plastic, all paper, or a combination of paper/plastic encasing. Top off customization with just the right length and packaging option.

Become the lead designer with our CloseIt series. Choose an eye-catching custom print or go wild with a unique shape.
