New family of products in 2020: reusable crates for shellfish, snails and other animals.

TEPSA shellfish crates advantages:

  • Improved design thinking both in giving better resistance to the crate and in improving the comfort of the animals.
  • Highly ventilated walls which ensure the air flow in the drying rooms (snails) or the water flow in the depuration and shipping centers (shellfish farms).
  • Lid with a pressure lock system which fastens it to the crate and with stacking seats on its top part to improve the stacking.
  • Improved logistics in the shipping centers that send them to the stores and department stores: we have available models which are compatible in between them and with other reusable plastic crates such as our 60x40cm fish crate. In addition, they are nestable when empty and this allows the return of this crates once the product has been removed to be really economical. 
  • Zero waste: being reusable and recyclable they encourage the circular economy.
  • Saving: they prevent from using single-use packaging as mesh or raffia sacks.
  • Food safety certification and suitable for freezing.
  • Sanitary Registration: 39.02805/LU.
