Global Frozen Seafood Packaging Market 2018-2022
About Frozen Seafood Packaging
Flexible packaging is expected to witness the largest growth among the different types of packaging materials used in frozen seafood packaging. Easy-to-cook flexible packaging options are already present in the market. For instance, Mondi Group, a prominent packaging vendor, has a product called steampack in its portfolio. Steampack is a flexible packaging option, which has an adaptable steam-valve that allows the customers to steam and prepare the chilled food. Therefore, seafood such as fish, shellfish, and others, can be directly prepared in the microwave. This pouch is made up of polyethylene terephthalate or cast polypropylene. With the rising demand for flexible packaging for frozen seafood, there will be an increased demand for these materials.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is antimicrobial packaging for seafood. If subject to inadequate storage and handling, seafood can undergo rapid microbial growth and contamination. Nearly 4-5 million tons of fish are lost annually due to improper storage onsite. The traditional methods that are employed for fish preservation include drying, thermal processing, freezing: refrigeration, irradiation: modified atmosphere packaging, and addition of different salts and antimicrobial agents. Antimicrobial packaging is a new form of active packaging for fish.”
