Where To Buy Clamshells
Selling at farmerís markets or at a roadside stand? Clamshell containers help keep produce fresh and boost sales by making shopping easier, says Kurt Zuhlke, Jr., president and CEO of Kurt Zuhlke & Associates, Inc., a Pennsylvania packaging company that sells a variety of clamshell packaging at www.producepackaging.com.
  A 2-compartment clamshell sells for $66 for a case of 440. To help first-time buyers, the website lists commodities from herbs to apples and then suggests the right type of packaging. Everything is sold in case lots.
  Zuhlke points out the clamshells are made of 100 percent recycled PETE (Polyethylene terephthalate) and can be recycled over and over. He notes that his company was the first in the industry to start the recycling trend when they first switched to 50 percent recycled plastics in 1994.
  The online store also sells other packaging products such as trays, soaker pads and bubble containers.
