Introducing Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) is the long-established market leading solution in the protection of fish and fish products from sea to sales counter across the globe.

This dominant market position comes from unrivalled superiority in thermal performance, impact protection, stacking strength and proven eco-credentials.

But as well as being the best option in protecting fish, EPS is also the preferred solution for the protection of high value, high fragility products – for transporting and protecting everything from human organs to sensitive electronics and IT equipment and from delicate foodstuffs such as exotic fruits to other microbiologically and impact sensitive foods such as fresh meats.
