What is the difference between Food Grade & Reconditioned?

True Food Grade containers are brand new, never used. The FDA regulations require containers being used for food packaging must be brand new, not reconditioned. Containers that have been reconditioned are cleaned but may have been used for anything in the past. Some larger companies can thoroughly clean containers that previously held most products or even chemicals. At Southern Container we do not accept containers used for chemicals, only food products. All of our containers are triple rinsed and sanitized with bleach.


Do you offer shipping?

Shipping is only available for larger, palletized orders. Contact your preferred shipping company for a quote, we do not ship individual items.

What are your hours?

We are available by appointment only; since we are primarily a delivery based company we are not always available at our warehouse locations. Contact us at least a day in advance for scheduling, our trailers are usually loaded the day before orders are delivered.
