NEW! Recyclable packaging for mushrooms & live microgreens


Attention automated fruit and vegetable packers: this 100% plastic-free biodegradable alternative to plastic clamshells offers a USA-made package your retail customers will love and happily pay more for.  Microgreen and mushroom growers especially like this big size for packaging their yellow oyster, blue oyster, shiitake, and lions mane mushrooms and live microgreens like peas and sunflowers.

Their rigid design lets you stack them high at point-of-sale or protect them during CSA and wholesale deliveries. The earth-themed cut-outs allow good visibility from all angles and encourage air in and around the produce. These vents also help to minimize condensation from temperature transitions from the field to refrigeration and preserve the freshness of the product. For high volumes they are a much lower investment than top seal punnets: they can be machine assembled and sealed at speeds of ~100 cartons per minute and they fit master cartons. Even hand sealing has a tamper-proof, spillage-reducing option.  Plus they’re easy to recycle and will biodegrade quickly even in a backyard compost bin.

This 3 Quart size holds 3 pounds (48 ounces) of grapes.

    From Larry at City-Hydro: “Thanks for making this 3 Quart size wide enough to fit our City-Hydro Grow Pads, lots of people are excited about them. They work great for selling microgreens live and we’re happy to let our growers know about this value-added product that reduces plastic.”
