We have many options for food storage. Most of our buckets meet FDA standards and are safe for food contact.

Here are a few of the most common ones.

       1.      Premium buckets (lids sold separately) - (also available in a 3.5, 6, and 7 gallon size)

2.      Standard buckets (lids sold separately)

3.      Original Life Latch(comes with a screw on lid and lid is gasketed)


The standard lid and lid with spout are both gasketed and can be used for both the premium and standard buckets. Both these types of lids are very tight fitting and require a mallet to put them on and something to pry them off.

The Gamma Seal lids are a good choice for buckets that have to be opened and closed often. You would pound on the ring and then the inner lid screws out easily.
