What is the bag for trash or product? You really need to provide more infromation if you want help. The more detail you provide will get you better answers and that will save you time and surely make you more satisfied.

I assume this bag is for food contact use? I would expect them to supply you with a specification stating it's suitable for food use. I'd expect the bag to be a decent thickness, eg 45 micron. Ideally if it's to be used in direct food contact, it should be distinctively coloured (if it can be for your use). For direct food use, I'd also expect the bags to arrive bagged to prevent contamination. On arrival, I'd expect the delivery to be inspected for damage and that it complies with specification.
