ASTM-D6400 Compostable Food Containers for Zoos


Compostable Food Containers Eliminate Polyethylene & Foam Container Waste From Landfill

Zoos continue to lead the way in sustainability by reducing its impact on the environment whenever and wherever it can. Growing in popularity are sustainable food containers from MDS that provide a positive impact on facilities and our planet, and it's one that will leave a lasting impression with your guests!

If there is one thing animals learn quickly, it’s feeding time. Whether it’s cooked, raw, or from a can, the ability to control and separate portions and feeding stations can be a real chore, especially if there are multiple hungry animals present.

Reusable bowls can be an ordeal to gather and dispense. They are also costly to procure, require valuable water, and chemicals to clean are time consuming to dry, clean, and stack. If they aren’t properly sanitized, bowls can harbor bacteria and allergens that could comprise the health of an animal.

Our Eco food containers are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes to accommodate different-sized food portions, animals, or applications like serving fish, vegetables, mice, fruit, nuts, and water. These can even be used for concession stand foods as well!
