WE’VE added a new absorbent pad solution to our Dri-Fresh range, which is perfect for anyone packing crabs, particularly when vacuum packing them.
Dri-Fresh Crab-Guard is an absorbent pad solution used under vacuum packed crabs – as well as offering absorbency it prevents the claws from piercing the packaging.
Pads can be supplied either square, rectangular or custom shapes (such as oval, to fit snugly with the crab within the packaging) and in a range of colours.
Karl Heggarty, global sales director, said: “Dri-Fresh Crab-Guard solves a problem within vacuum packed crabs, namely that the sharp claws can pierce the film.
“It’s a simple solution, but one which makes a big difference. We can also add extras, such as anti-microbial properties, which gives the pad additional functionality.
“Pads can also be used in trays, under the crabs, when sold that way.”
Colour options include white as standard, but we can offer other colours on request, including colours that blend with the crab (see picture).
Dri-Fresh Crab-Guard can also be offered from compostable/recyclable materials.
Sirane offers a wide range of packaging solutions for seafood and shellfish, including absorbent crate liners, absorbent pads, salmon boards (including recyclable), ice-mats (for live seafood) and flexibles such as printed flow-wrap film.
We’ll be exhibiting at Packaging Innovations at the NEC from February 15-16 (Stand F44), and at Seafood Expo North America in Boston from March 12-14 (Booth 174).
