Cubans don't use containers for things when they don't have to. I've noticed that bread is one category deemed safe to transport container-free. They don't ship them in boxes or bags, but in piles or stacks.
Here's an example: The bread is stacked up in the truck. They move the bread by placing the stacks on some kind of fabric and carrying the fabric.
The upside is that it's eco-friendly. They're not using, then discarding, mountains of plastic. The downside is that the bread is being handled by multiple pairs of unwashed hands in its journey from the bakery to the store or restaurant.
