It is my understanding that you would like a list of
websites/businesses from which you can purchase packing containers for
salsa. Is this correct?

May I ask where you are located? And do you have any preference as to
where the business is located? Also, are you wanting containers in a
specific price range?

When looking for plastic containers to suit your needs, it's important
to consider the intended use.  Not all plastics are suitable for all
uses - in your case, I've sought out suppliers of food grade, FDA
compliant containers.  Non compliant containers could contaminate your
product and make your customers ill!

I've selected only companies which mention that their products are
suitable for food use.  Most companies do not make pricing available
on their websites - you'll need to contact the ones that interest you
with your order specifications for a quote.

The Jar Man in Kent, OH offers FDA compliant plastic jars, in sizes
from 1 pint to 4 gallons.  To get a complete listing, you'll need to
call or e-mail:

Rez-Tech Corp.

Kent, OH 44240
ph-1-800-673-JARS (5277)      

There is a similarly named facility in California with a comparable
product line, but they don't appear to be related:
