Specifications 

Materials 

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) 

  • PET clamshells are transparent, lightweight, and durable. Their excellent moisture barrier properties and clarity allow consumers to see the contents easily.
  • Food-safe and approved by regulatory agencies worldwide, including the FDA in the United States, EFSA in Europe, and Health Canada.
  • PET can be recycled. Our clamshell food containers are marked with a recycling symbol.

PP (Polypropylene)

  • PP is a versatile material with strength, flexibility, and resistance to heat and chemicals.
  • Polypropylene is approved for food contact applications and is considered safe for storing food. 
  • Some of our PP clamshells are microwave and freezer-safe due to their heat resistance and durability.

Sugarcane 

  • Sugarcane (or bagasse) is a fibrous byproduct. It’s a natural and renewable material, ideal for food packaging.
  • Bagasse is generally considered safe for food contact because it’s derived from plants and undergoes minimal processing. Our sugarcane-made clamshells are compostable and biodegradable.
  • A sustainable alternative to traditional plastics. Minimizes your business’s environmental impact.
