Seafood packing system delivers major benefits

rpc2015.151 Bebo Kristiansand Seafood Tray

RPC Bebo Kristiansand – Food Packaging Systems (formally Promens Kristiansand) has introduced a new seafood packing system that provides important logistical and sustainability benefits compared to more traditional packs.

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 (MAP) can deliver extended shelf life.

The specially-designed thermoformed HDPE 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 10-12 days for fish fillets.
