Packaging for Sales
    #2594134 - 04/23/04 10:39 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

For those who have seen my growlog you would know I am going to need some manner of packaging several pounds of fresh shiitake for sale.

I'm looking for sources and suggestions. The sooner I can move forward on this the better.

TIA

I need some cartons too. I just started my test market crop of oyster, elm oyster, and king oyster.

I was wondering from your growlog about your new pins forming. Do you know if the farm you bought the logs from used a spring specific strain?

mushroompeople cold and varied weather strains. i would assume the cooler weather strains are what are showing now. the logs are completely mixed up by both strain and age (either 1 or 2yo).

I've found a decent source for 5# boxes but I haven't found too many people wanting to buy 5# at a time.

In that you give us no idea where you are located or what
quantity of boxes or other packaging type that you are looking for,
it is a bit difficult to feel confident of any recommendation.

Here in the USA, we started out using ULINE boxes, soon discovered
that a nearby (Milwaukee, WI) company sold boxes for about one
half of ULINES prices and because it was quite close, saved about 2/3
of the cost of shipping the boxes to us.

That's about all I can offer with the information given.

OTOH, perhaps you are after styrofoam/plastic containers?

if you followed the growlog link you'd see I am in NE TN.

i'm looking for suggestions on what type of containers to use altho i had originally expected to use vented, waxed carboard boxes wrapped with cellophane, boxes that would hold 1# are necessary. i think im ay need 5# boxes for market sale.

i will prolly have to dry some product and here i'd be interested in bags with paper foldover tops that i could put a logo on.

I'm not sure what lines might be crossed so maybe PM me actual sources as opposed to publicly posting them.

what are you boxing up anyways?

I didn't and still havent.  :smile:

Waxed boxes are quite expensive. Are you sure the styrofoam type
commonly used for mushrooms wouldn't be preferable?  Then maybe
ship those in a standard cardboard box?

For the short term, Something printed on adhesive paper would be
relatively inexpensive.  I have no experience with bags.

The plastic clam shell things work for smaller batches. But for larger ones I would wo with the five pound cartons. They realy only jold about 3 to 4 pounds of oyster.

I sell just to chefs in my local area. I take a box with all my mushrooms in it to the restuarants. They just weigh out what they want and I'm on my merry way. No money spent on packaging.

Good idea. I am working on a buyers rout right now. Instead of dumpping them all off at a huge super market for cheap. I would rather make some real cash.

It's generally bad form to post source type links publicly that are not shroomery sponsors.

sources are primarily what i need here.
shroomery sponsors don't supply gourmet packaging.

I'm not sure about your fresh packaging, but for your dried product, get a vacuum packer. You can also put a logo on your bags with a labeling mashine, or a laminated labeling machine (I forget what they're called, my wife has one for her soapmaking business). Just watch out for the bugs with your dried product, especially since you're outdoors with your logs. Good luck.
