I've seen them but am hesitant to buy. Can anyone comment on the quality?

Good for Student get togethers of 1 or more. It appears that many students don't quite understand the dangers of Covid-19 and want to party like before.

Saw this also at BTrust in Mississauga. It's located in the front right before the cashier.

Not sure about quality but $9.99 for 50 pieces.

Yep. People should be buying reusable face mask. It's just as effective and you're not killing the environment with these disposable face mask

If resuable ones were as effective, hospitals would have switched a long time ago. No matter how closely you knit fabric, you won't achieve the filtration performance of a heat bonded sheet of plastic nor get the electrostatic properties.

I mentioned this in the original post but the quality is decent for disposables. We had bought a different brand before and they were terrible. These ones from Foody World are better.

I still recall just four to five months ago, everyone is whining masks should be made within Canada. And some companies actually started to make those things, I am just wondering what happened to those companies. How do they compete with these?

This is true. However with these disposable masks I've been getting a rash on my face and also they can be pretty smelly from god knows what material they make them out of. My 100% cotton mask is much more comfortable now. I'm sure it's not as effective as the disposable but I just can't go back to that.

Due to economies of scale, and other factors, from existing foreign manufacturers, and with the current prices of masks, I doubt it would be economically feasible for a made in Canada solution for these disposable masks.

I think price will vary based on the quality of the mask. So perhaps you have some good masks compared to the $7.99 box.

I got a $20 box mask from costco, and I think the costco one is better or at least similar quality to my $60 box bought in March.

Agreed! Justin gave a few manufacturers (in Ont and Que if i'm correct) a large donation to produce these items. Where are the products?
Compete? Good question, even at min wage these masks are going to be way more expensive.
