Who We Are



First Genesis Inc.(FGI), operating as Sunflower Rubber & Plastics, was founded in 1992. Since our humble beginning from a one car garage in Ajax, Ontario, we became one of Canada's leading suppliers of Rubber Bands and LDPE Poly Reclosable Zipper Bags. In 1999, we were nominated by Profit Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in Canada. We were proud of our achievements. We credited our success to all our dedicated staff, loyal customers and our reliable manufacturing partners. 

In 2014, FGI formed a strategic partnership with a leading manufacturer of Fresh Produce Pouches in China.  Today, we are one of the leading suppliers of Fresh Produce Bags in North America. Our customers are major growers of Grapes, Apples, Cherries, Greenhouse Produce and Field Produce. We also supply Private Label Produce Pouches to some of Canada's largest grocery supermarkets. Through this partnership with our Chinese factory, we are able to create many more new and innovative products to service our customers. To date, we have the ability to produce our own Half Net & Half Poly bags. This kind of bags are suitable for packing Potatoes, Onions, Garlics, Shallots and Citrus Fruits. We can also produce our very own 'Child Safe' Zipper Seal Pouches for the Canadian Medicinal Cannabis market. 

As our industry is moving towards a more enviromentally friendly packaging, we now have the ability to produce a 100% Recycle Pouch bag using a proprietary High Oxygen Barrier LDPE film substrate instead of PET. Most High Oxygen Barrier pouches currently in the market are made from PET over PE film lamination. This film combination is NOT RECYCLABLE. It goes into the garbage and it ended up in the landfill. However our new LDPE High Oxygen Barrier Pouches are made from100% RECYCLEABLE LDPE film substrate and is categorized under Recycle Logo #4.

Other than using a 100% Compostable bag made from Corn, which is relatively expensive and not suitable for High Barrier application, your next best option is to replace your PET/PE Pouch bags with our 100% Recyclable High Barrier LDPE Pouches. Since our bag is made at our Chinese factory, we offer low MOQ and very competitive prices. Call or email us for a quote.  

Our focus to deliver consistent quality products and services has helped us built a strong foundation to service the needs of our customers in an increasingly competitive market. Our commitment is alway to provide our customers Value for their money. It has brought us to where we are today and I am confident it will carry our company forward for many years to come.
