About Us

The Grocery Box Company Limited (www.bigfatbags.co.uk) was officially founded in late 2013. In North America, the customer is truly king, and the need to improve every aspect of the ‘shopping process’ is taken very seriously and with the new ‘cart-to-car’ philosophy, the collapsible shopping box has become such a staple of peoples grocery and shopping requirements. It was with this popularity and first hand experience that led to the introduction of these unique bags with the additional element of the embedded antibacterial agent into the UK market.

All of our bigfatbags are made from 100% recyclable materials and are also EPA approved (Environmental Protection Agency). Built to outlast thousands of plastic bags.


‘Makes life easier, saves money, gives lifetime protection and makes a big fat difference to our environment.

These bags, only found in North America until now, are hugely popular with over 8 million sold. They have a unique and impressive patented design which is incredibly strong, collapsible, appealing in design and have the added unique benefit of being LIFETIME antibacterial. The real attraction lies in the bags patented design structure. Packing becomes a breeze, there are no more cans, bottles etc rolling around the boot of your car thanks to the rigid frame, it is truly multi purpose for storage of all sorts and flat packs for easy storage in the car to make sure you always have it with you.

A Glasgow Caledonian University study showed coliform (a fecal bacteria), found in more than half of the everyday fabric, canvas, tote or plastic ‘bags for life’  tested. U.S studies showed 12% E.Coli present in bags tested. 97% of people polled were not aware of the dangers potentially lurking in their bag for life.

Avoid using plastic bags

www.bigfatbags.co.uk is a supporter against the overwhelming damage being done to our planet by plastic bagsWith minimum charges of 5p now in effect across the UK, the market has many variations of the ‘reusable bag’ or ‘bag for life’ as they are often called, but none with quite such a unique design and with so many features and benefits to not only the you, but also the environment.

We hope you enjoy using your ‘bigfatbag’ for many years to come with its outstanding quality and unique designs.
