skin pack seafood

Vacuum skin pack seafood is when special film is used to seal the product over its entire surface on a shape-retaining web or a ready-made tray. Santa Monica Seafood spent two years developing the No. 1 PET recyclable skin packaging with its partner, MULTIVAC. The process focused on the elimination of single-use plastics and “establishing the pre-packaged format as the preferred way for customers to buy quality seafood.”


“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.”


“Skin pack seafood has many benefits for customers, such as easy handling, freshness, no waste and traceability,” Michael Cigliano, Chairman of Santa Monica Seafood said. “This is especially true today with customers’ increased need to minimize touchpoints and their time in store. Retailers look to us for solutions; from MAP to vacuum skin pack seafood 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 our leadership position as an innovator in pre-packaged skin pack seafood.”


Santa Monica Seafood specializes in the development and sale of pre-packaged, chilled seafood products to food retailers. It also develops value-added seafood products with rubs, sauces, and butters that are ready to heat and eat. The firm, which has locations in Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, California, aims to help retailers and consumers alike to “understand the benefits of skin pack seafood which is case-ready and pre-packaged.”
