ITEM FOURTEEN: The Plastic Deli Container. Ubiquitous yet indispensable, the plastic deli container is available in a variety of sizes and has revolutionized food storage, transportation and sales. Somewhere between when they stopped putting Big Macs in Styrofoam boxes and today, these clear plastic, throwaway containers showed up in the service of a hungry public too hurried to get a plate. In a well appointed food photography studio, stacks of these await moving foods. At the local grocery store here in Albuquerque, a plastic deli container can be had for all of seven cents complete with the fishmonger’s choice of the single best looking, fully cooked, wild caught, Chinese crawfish.
