Better Earth Compostable Products, a leader in sustainable foodservice packaging solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of its new 2 and 3 Taco Clamshells and the expansion of its team with several new hires, dedicated to helping clients achieve and surpass their sustainability objectives.

The innovative 2 and 3 Taco Clamshells are designed to provide a convenient, eco-friendly solution for enjoying on-the-go tacos. Crafted from unbleached bamboo fiber, these 100% compostable and environmentally responsible containers are free of PFAs, wax, and plastic linings, making them a superior and sustainable choice for foodservice packaging.

The freezer-safe, soak-proof design ensures tacos remain fresh and delicious during transit, while the containers compost in just two to four months in a commercial composting facility, leaving no waste or harmful residues behind.

Key Features:

  • All-natural, PFAS-free bamboo fiber that is oil and grease resistant
  • Versatile and flexible, with two and three holder options
  • Made of FDA compliant, food-grade material
  • Proprietary designs enable better opening with locking lid snaps over a better fitting clamshell
  • Fully compostable and complies with ASTM standards (BPI certification pending)

  • Custom 4-color printing is available

Better Earth’s industry-leading custom printing capabilities are also available to customize the branding of the new 2 and 3 taco clamshells, enabling food service operators, restaurants, taco trucks and everyone in between the ability to own sustainability in their own style.
