10K TRAY SKIN SEAFOOD PACKAGING
MEETING FDA GUIDELINES FOR OXYGEN TRANSMISSION
The US FDA considers fresh fish and seafood products potentially life-threatening due to the possibility of producing deadly toxins when packed in vacuum application.
Therefore, the FDA has strict packaging regulations regarding vacuum-packed fresh fish and seafood.
Packaging that has an oxygen transmission rate (OTR) of 10,000 cc/m2 /24 hours at 24°C, or higher, often referred to as 10K OTR, are highly permeable and comply with FDA oxygen permeability guidelines for packaging fresh seafood while preserving colour, flavour and integrity.

With ONE4ALL G.Mondini technology, a range of different supports can be run on the same tooling - ranging from flat board and PaperSeal® trays, to reduced thickness plastic trays - enabling flexibility and differentiation with one simple change.
Skin-tight packs fit to the product as a second skin, showcasing the natural 3D product shape, retaining purge - avoiding underweight product, and can be quickly chilled.
