Sustainable packaging for seafood

This packaging  for transporting live seafood is a flat-packed, recyclable, biodegradable, renewable solution made from 100% food safe materials.

With the growing global demand for ecologically responsible packaging, producers feel the pressure to develop packaging that can deliver live seafood safely while not harming the planet. This solution offers a good alternative to polystyrene packaging often used for transport of live seafood.

The corrugated carton has a water resistant coating which is biodegradable, this makes the packaging suitable for use in semi-wet environments. Inside the box a wool liner is placed that ensures a constant temperature of the content during shipping. The packaging is moisture absorbing while maintaining its structural integrity. It is also leak proof and arrives flat packed, saving on transportation and storage costs.It can be used to transport lobsters, crabs and fish.

The packaging won gold at the 2020 Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design Awards (PIDA) in the food category.
