Mushrooms Growers love this packaging!

Because the Sustainable Produce Container is such a popular package with mushroom growers and mycologists, we've got a whole page here so all the info is in one place! Click on the size name you want to go to that order page or call Linda at 859-630-2694 for best shipping prices. 

ADVANTAGES

  • 100% recyclable
  • Biodegrades in a backyard compost pile in a few weeks
  • Cardboard is thicker than paper bags so mushrooms can't "eat" it as quickly
  • Containers are sturdy enough to stack 3-6 layers tall
  • Earth-themed vents for air flow
  • Secure hinged lid latch
  • Holds up under temperature transitions (same cardboard is used in beer bottle carriers)
  • Containers fit in most master cartons
  • Easy to hand assemble, some designs are reversible with white on one side, natural on the other
  • Single and full color printing available for just 10,000 minimum (approximately a pallet)
  • Ships flat saving space
  • In high volumes containers are the same price as plastic and eliminate sticky labels
  • Practically free machine container former available (small deposit, 3 year lease for high volumes)

​DRAWBACKS

  • Mushrooms may dry out a bit sooner than in plastic but will never get slimy like old ones in plastic
  • Containers need to be hand-formed unless you have the quantities to justify a machine former
  • Sizes do not hold exactly same amount as current grocery store 8 oz mounded plastic tubs but this gives you an opportunity to resize, rebrand and remarket at a better price per pound.
