How to package oyster mushrooms
« on: August 18, 2014, 10:13:51 PM »
Any ideas on packaging Oyster mushrooms?
I have had a look in the shops and they tend to either sell them on a foam tray covered in clear plastic wrap, or in the clear plastic 'clamshell' type containers.
2 concerns with those approaches are:
1. not very environmentally friendly/sustainable, and
2. worried that the oysters will sweat if covered with cling film.

Anyone got any other ideas for packaging?

Thanks

I ended up buying paper mushroom bags (16 dollars for 500) for direct sales since most people cook them shortly after and get to see the shrooms first, and plastic clams (salad servings they're called) for individual servings for shops. Plastic clams are $26 for 125 of them. Now I have to print stickers to put on them but that'll be easy.

For restaurants, they have larger "plateau" looking things and other large containers that would work well. In addition, if you sell kgs to restaurants in such large tray, you can probably get the tray back and re-fill it which saves paying for it again and wasting plastic.

Plastic clams are great because you can design clear stickers and do better branding + give information on your products.

One thing you could look at is bamboo plates (but you'd still have to put a plastic wrap on them)

Upon googling, what I was thinking of isn't a plate, rather it's a 'sheath' - http://www.buygreen.com/disposablebamboosheathboats.aspx

Then there's these sturdier versions:

There's also a couple of bamboo clams that show up on google image searches, they look a bit like ones for burgers though.

i have tried most things but keep going back to the clam type or the foam trays unfortunately. a lot of the recycled type trays tend to soften after a couple of days and become flimsy probably due to moisture exchange from the mushys

Thanks for the replies guys.
I was looking at something like cardboard or bamboo but was worried that the moisture might soften them and the POW is so aggressive that I think it will start feeding off the container  :o

Sounds like I'm on the right track then with the clear plastic clamshells or foam & clingwrap.
