Preserving and shipping fresh catch from seas to the sales counter or restaurant is one of the biggest challenges faced by the seafood industry. You require proper packaging solutions to ensure the contents remain fresh when they reach the shelves in convenience stores.
EPS or Expanded Polystyrene is one of the globally-preferred solutions to transport fish, and other fresh produce right from the sea to sales counter, in prime condition. Known for its high-end insulation qualities, shock resistance, lightweight and durability, EPS foam boxes are considered as the best option as seafood packaging.

Besides, these boxes are water-resistant, thus protects the content from external moisture and preserve the perishables for a longer period of time.
Fresh sea produce is temperature-sensitive. If the internal temperature is not maintained correctly, the perishables can get rotten in no time. Since EPS boxes possess high thermal insulation properties, they protect and salvage the sea catch when they are transported to the stores.
Apart from this, the containers are durable, making it one of the most efficient packaging materials. Since it is 98% air EPS boxes are extremely easy to stack.
Moreover, EPS boxes are lightweight, which reduces the shipping costs, while its insulating properties protect the perishables during transit and ensure fresh delivery for seafood.
