Reusable containers, the zero-waste revolution!
Getting rid of disposables requires more than just bringing your own shopping bag. Ozarka is committed to solving the problem of disposable food packaging at every level: reusable food packaging, zero-waste delivery, logistics, and commercial food service. If you’re serious about making throwaway a thing of the past, we’re the partner you need.
Zero-waste is hard. We’re making it happen.

You do the food. We’ll do the dishes.
Ozarka is a complete system that replaces single-use food containers with high-quality reusable dishes, custom-designed for takeout. Using an innovative system, we make reusable food packaging easy and cost-effective.

Together, we can make single-use food containers a thing of the past, eliminate one of the biggest source of plastic waste, and offer customers a great experience in the process.
How it’s made
You can trust that containers processed in our cleaning facilities are presented ready for use, washed and sanitized in efficient, professional, commercial dishwashers using eco-friendly detergents.
Beth Massa spent the first part of her career at Amazon.com, during the hectic early days, and the second part of her career at Microsoft in the Netherlands. That’s where she learned about the plastic pollution crisis from her scientific research clients, and got obsessed with finding practical ways to tackle this global issue.
She came up with the idea for Ozarka during a solo weekend in Paris, where she sometimes visits to clearing her head and think about the future. It brought together three things she’d long wanted to do: start her own business, create an experience that customers really love, and make a genuine positive impact on the world.
Beth is the “Why” of Ozarka.
Michael Massa has a background in electrical engineering, a degree in patent law, and a certification in data science. He always gets nervous when Beth goes on her weekend breaks to Paris. So when she came back from one and said, “I’m leaving the corporate world to start a new sustainable business…and I want you to join me,” he knew it was serious.
Michael is the “How” of Ozarka.
Beth identifies challenges, and Michael solves them. They also employ a world-class team (seriously, world class) of contractors to keep pushing Ozarka forward.
