Companies in the fish industry are prioritizing sustainability to meet the demands of legislators and consumers. We help the fish industry build a more sustainable supply chain by replacing fossil-based packaging with a solution made from mainly renewable materials. According to our LCA study, you can lower the carbon footprint of your packaging at least by 40%.
EcoFishBox is a complete solution for packing fish throughout the supply chain, including custom branded boxes and lids, automation and ice packing solutions. Made of mainly renewable wood fiber and delivered flat, EcoFishBox contributes to using less fossil resources and requires significantly less space in storage and transport, translating into reduced climate impact.
