Fish and Seafood Packaging

Fish and seafood packaging

While fish and seafood packaging comes in a lot of forms, flexible packaging is one of the most effective and eco-friendly in the market, as it allows to implement light, bio-friendly, and lower-cost solutions for your products.

Most consumers today expect the wrapper to match product quality, looking for the product with informative, safe, leak and odour proof packaging with high-quality design.

Premium flexible packaging for your needs

While there are a lot of composite combinations, we would like to show you a few solutions for seafood snacks, fresh, chilled, frozen, smoked, and salted fish.

The pouch for salmon

Seafood snacks packaging

Taking into account the properties of dried seafood snacks we recommend lamination with printing placed between the layers of PET and PE films. In some cases when the product has sharp edges that can potentially compromise wrapper integrity, we recommend using polyamide film instead of PET.

  • Transparent polyethylenterephthalat (good protection against oxygen)
  • Transparent polyethylene (transparent thermo-sealing layer, prevents water vapours from entering the wrapper)

Seafood snacks packaging scheme

Packaging for semi-preserved food, salted or smoked fish

Preserves manufacturers have very strict requirements for flexible fish product packaging. It should not be affected in any way by the extremely aggressive marinade or salt solution, it must withstand tension and maintain proper transparency of polyethylene film. If the product has sharp-edged fins or tail, the wrapper must be puncture-proof. We create the laminate with such properties using polyamide with polyethylene film with special additives.

  • Bioriented polyamide (high resistance to oxygen and other gases, heat, and frost. The film conserves flavour and taste of highly volatile substances)
  • Transparent polyethylene (transparent thermo-sealing and structural layer, protects the wrapper from water vapours).

Laminate structure for smoked, salted fish, semi-preserved seafood

Packaging for fish and seafood

We use combined materials based on PET and transparent PP with special additives to provide the best protection. This special combination of film layers conserves the product during its whole shelf life.

  • Transparent polyethylenterephthalat (good protection against oxygen)
  • Transparent polyethylene (transparent thermo-sealing layer, prevents water vapours from entering the wrapper)
