ARPAC has created the Hera Packaging System with SLB(TM) Shelf Life Booster, an innovative technology for extending shelf-life of sealing trays with modified atmosphere (MAP) technology. This system was showcased at the International Boston Seafood Show, Booth # 185. SLB(TM) uses no vacuum yet can achieve oxygen residual levels of less than 1% and does it faster than current MAP systems. This innovative new packaging technology is therefore safe for food packaging, including fresh fish & seafood, and can increase shelf life of these products by 3 times longer than ever before! Prolonged shelf life will provide you with maximum efficiency in the supply chain, save in spoilage and will significantly improve your profitability as a producer and supplier of fish and seafood.
