Where can I buy food-grade plastic clamshells in bulk?

Title. Like the ones below:



Searched and searched, but I can't find a single thing. Looking to buy in bulk. Any ideas?

I did see that, was hoping to find someone here in CH, shipping and import will make the price per item high if I'm not importing hundreds of thousands..

300 pieces for 265 francs including free shipping.... no company in Switzerland is going to be able to manufacture locally and give you a better deal.

Didn't you say you need "in bulk". That's normally hundreds if not thousands.

So, I live in Ticino, and I actually found a manufacturer in Giubiasco at 0.20/per.

I hope you have plans how to recycle this single use plastic.

Not including throwing in the trash for incineration.

Guitarist for Gotthard, I've known most of them for 25+ years. He lives in Cagiallo, I run into him from time to time at Migros or the bar.
