Ethos seafood is packed in the latest technology to ensure freshness.

Ethos Seafood Group Transforms Prepackaged Seafood Category With Recycled/Recyclable Film

  (UNITED STATES, 5/29/2020)

Ethos Seafood Group ('ESG") announced the transitioning of their seafood packaging into #1 PET recyclable material. The recyclable packaging is the result of a two year development effort between Ethos Seafood Group and MULTIVAC, which focused on eliminating single use plastics and establishing the pre-packaged format as the preferred way for customers to buy quality seafood. 

Ivan Clements, Co-President at Ethos Seafood Group and partner at Blue Earth Group noted, "Plastics are a primary concern for everyone in the seafood industry. Alongside our partners at MULTIVAC, we identified the pressing need to transition vacuum skin-pack films into a recyclable format. We are very pleased to have achieved this goal for the base trays, with the additional customer benefit of having an easy-peel top film."

Ethos delivers fresh cut, prepackaged seafood products to retail locations throughout the U.S. from state-of-the-art facilities in Illinois.

Michael Cigliano, Co-President at Ethos Seafood Group and Chairman of Santa Monica Seafood noted, "Pre-packaged seafood has many benefits for customers, such as easy handling, freshness, no waste and traceability. This is especially true today with customers' increased need to minimize touchpoints and their time in store. Retailers look to ESG for solutions; from MAP to vacuum skin-pack we have always focused on the next opportunity to help grow their fresh seafood sales. We believe that this new recyclable packaging development not only is the right thing to do but also solidifies ESG's leadership position as an innovator in pre-packaged seafood."

Products range from simple portion-pack fish to value-added seafood dishes which are ready to cook.

Gregg Poffenbarger, Business Unit Manager at MULTIVAC commented, "MULTIVAC has worked with Ethos Seafood Group on the chilled, pre-packaged seafood category since its inception and are very pleased to have achieved this milestone in film development and application. The base tray, which makes up the majority of the package, is made from  #1 mono PET film, generally the most recyclable material used today, and this film also includes a high percentage of recycled material. To further ensure recyclability we have developed a clean release/peel from the breathable top film. MULTIVAC's advancements in film recyclability and customer benefits demonstrate our commitment to innovation in the food packaging space. We look forward to ongoing collaboration with ESG as this new category grows."
