Plastic boxs?

Postby bluc » Tue Jun 15, 2021 7:35 pm

Anyone know where to get big plastic food grade boxs. 120l min. Been searching catering suppliers with no luck.

Getting sick of reaching down to bottom of 200l barrel.

The big green shed has lots of plastic boxes mate, not sure if they are food safe.
What about a old plastic esky from a garage sale some of those can be a good size

You could try a bakery or commercial kitchen too. They get a lot of ingredients in food grade containers. Lots of different sizes depending on the ingredient, and often they are happy to get rid of them because it costs to dispose of the container.

I specifically wanted boxs. Bigger 120l but more shallow so easy to scoop out lots of grain. I am not likeing the fruit flies that come with loose lids :angry-banghead:
