Has anyone tried out the clamshells made from corn? I use cellophane bags
that are compostable for most of our market items, but there are some
vegetables/fruits that would display better in the clamshell. I wish I could
just forget the packaging, but it's amazing how much better even tomatoes
sell, if they are in a package of some kind.
Below is the website and description for the clamshells I've been

"Compostable hinged clamshell containers are designed to keep perishables
fresher, longer because of a superior seal you won't find on conventional
clamshell containers. Made from 100% renewable resources. Environmental
message will appeal to customers."

Hi Marcy,
Packaging Direct has some really nice multi-purpose one pint clamshells.
Go to page 4 of http://cmpackaging.com/pdf/pdi/Clamshells 1 Pint and Smaller

Check out model 35-1 PTNV - it's a nice unusual jewel-box shape. PD is 
very good about sending samples and their quality is excellent.


Any ideas for sources to get one pint cartons for salsa? I'm thinking of
the clear plastic type with lids. I've checked my usual catalogs, but 
is the first time for this.
