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 more sustainable fiber-based solutions.
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 considerable environmental savings.

EcoFishBox meets the high technical requirements of Stora Enso and complies with relevant European food contact legislation. This includes certified traceability and food safety management systems at production sites to secure product safety.

The results of our LCA study shows that the EcoFishBox achieves at least 40% lower emissions on average compared to EPS boxes regarding greenhouse gas emissions. The study also illustrates the lower emissions of transports of filled EcoFishBoxes, since over 20 % more corrugated board packages and fish can be fitted into the same vehicle due to their more compact volume.
