In the northern part of the Atlantic lies the volcanic island of Iceland with its hot springs and dramatic nature, dotted with many natural wonders like the Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss Waterfall and the new eruption on Reykjanes. With its fantastic nature and cultural history, Iceland is a place that breathes the very best of nature. Along the seafront of the country, there are fish processing plants of various sizes, from small self-employed to large international companies.
Fish processing company Premium of Iceland is based in a small town called Sandgerði outside of the Reykjanes peninsula. They emphasize working with only the very best quality fish, good product presentation, using climate-friendly packaging where possible, and reducing the use of plastic in the fishing industry. Premium of Iceland now packs a large part of their fresh fish products in EcoFishBoxes, the carbon footprint of which is much smaller compared to the traditional plastic alternative. Their choice is helping to reduce the use of plastics in the fish industry.
Premium of Iceland Ehf. Gylfi Þór Markússon says:
“It's been a bit of an adventure and great success since we started using EcoFishBox. Our buyers welcomed it, as everyone wants to be as climate friendly as possible. It is made mainly of renewable wood fiber, and we are proud to be part of that tree-for-tree chain. We recommend the entire fishery sector to now examine whether it can do better for the climate!”
