Replace plastic hinged clamshells with this sustainable, recyclable 1pt. vented cardboard produce box made from natural paperboard! It’s vented to allow air in and around the produce, keeping condensation at bay and preserving the freshness of your product. These vents also allow easy transitions to different temperatures. A strong anchor lock closure ensures a secure seal, or tuck the lid into the box itself for fast packaging. Perfect for retail display and sale, as well as for transport to and from your location. Use them for your cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, mushrooms, and berries. Containers can be assembled with either the white or natural brown side out depending on the look you want or how you want to organize your produce. This traditional square pint-size holds 12 oz or 1 dry pint.

This “Klikok” design can also be machine-formed at volumes comparable to the release of plastic clamshells onto an automatic fill line. The white side offers full color and the natural brown a single color. Please call Linda at 859-630-2694 (or email [email protected]) for best pricing and freight costs to you and other details.

1 review for 1 Pint Natural Vented Clamshell Reversible Produce Basket Container (285/case)

  1. Linda Fritz

    We got the boxes just when we needed them (which was very fast), you were very helpful online and on the phone. We love them! Both the 2 Quart and the pint work perfectly and are easy to assemble. They hold precisely the amounts we need them to and they are great for our not so big blueberries. Our presentation feels very professional now and we are grateful to have a product like this. They are beautiful and make us feel very good delivering our berries that we worked so hard to grow and harvest!
    Thanks so much!
