Fish and other seafood items are precious food products: as they are rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, they form an important contribution to a healthy diet. However, the catching of edible fish is threatened by overfishing – a further reason to deal with this valuable nutrition ever more carefully. That is why leading companies in the food and packaging industry, such as SEALPAC, engage themselves in the SAVE FOOD initiative with the primary goal to prevent food losses around the globe.
Being a popular food item in today’s kitchen, but also extremely sensitive and perishable, seafood must be treated with extreme care. Modern MAP and vacuum packaging, as well as a strictly controlled, uninterrupted cold chain, must ensure highest product safety and optimal shelf life. It protects the food against the ingress of oxygen, which accelerates degradation, thus avoiding any undesirable smells and taste. As such, salmon, shrimp and alike are optimally preserved, preventing them from drying out, maintaining their aroma, and ensuring that their specific flavour is not transmitted to other foods. Let SEALPAC show you how.
