Light, strong, cool solutions for the fish supply chain
Introducing Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) is the long-established market leading solution in the protection of fish and fish products from sea to sales counter across the globe.
This dominant market position comes from unrivalled superiority in thermal performance, impact protection, stacking strength and proven eco-credentials.
But as well as being the best option in protecting fish, EPS is also the preferred solution for the protection of high value, high fragility products – for transporting and protecting everything from human organs to sensitive electronics and IT equipment and from delicate foodstuffs such as exotic fruits to other microbiologically and impact sensitive foods such as fresh meats.

EPS is effectively 98% air, minimising weight impacts in transportation
Hygienic & Safe
EPS is non-toxic, chemically inert, and fungi and bacteria cannot grow on it
Highly efficient manufacture and localised production units mean EPS is a low-cost, proven solution
The 2% polystyrene cellular matrix gives outstanding impact resistance
EPS is insoluble and non-hygroscopic
Styrene for EPS is a byproduct of refining but is also abundant in natural products
Unique insulation performance keeps fish safe and eradicates waste
Clean manufacturing technologies mean minimal energy and water inputs with no production waste
Most EPS packaging is easily recyclable where facilities exist
