Seafood packing trays that extend product shelf-life
A new seafood packing system that gives logistical and sustainability benefits compared with more traditional packs, has been introduced by RPC Bebo Kristiansand Food Packaging Systems (formally Promens Kristiansand).

Comprising lightweight trays, sealing film and tray lidding machines, the system is able to pack a range of seafood products from fish fillets to shellfish and, in conjunction with modified atmosphere packing, can deliver extended shelf-life.

The specially-designed thermoformed high density polyethylene trays are available in a range of sizes and contain features such as pyramids, which, when used in combination with plastic layer pads, avoid discolouration of the fish from residual water and liquid. The trays ensure long shelf-life without the need for ice, offering a typical 1012 days for fish fillets.

For efficient distribution, the trays have a robust construction and are fully stackable a full truckload can contain around 10 times more trays than expanded polystyrene boxes.
