Aptar Food + Beverage, Crystal Lake, Ill., showcased SeaWell, a next-generation seafood packaging solution.

These patent-pending seafood trays feature integrated absorbent technology incorporated into wells at the bottom of trays to absorb excess fluids. This innovative technology reduces exposure to fluids and lessens potential damage to seafood products. The packaging system is designed to increase freshness and visual appeal, absorb odors and enhance safety.

Available in a signature blue color and a variety of sizes for various capacities, SeaWell significantly extends shelf life for fresh seafood, in many cases by up to 50% or greater. Product can be packed frozen and then thawed in the same package, all while maintaining product integrity. Plus, when thawing, the resulting fluids are absorbed in the tray’s wells, invisible to consumers.

Automation-friendly for high-speed production environments, the package offers clear visibility of the packed product, promoting the exchange of authentic product and representing a “case-to-cook” solution for easy execution in industrial kitchens.
