TEPSA will take part in the Seafood Expo Global 2016

TEPSA will present its new stackable multi-format plastic crates in the world’s largest seafood and fishing industry trade fair.

Thousands of buyers and suppliers from all over the world offer their products and services related to fish and seafood in the Seafood Expo Global (SEG). Last year this trade fair counted 26.652 buyers from 144 countries, 1.761 exhibitors and 66 regional halls.  It will take place from 26 to 28 April 2016 in the Brussels Expo (Belgium).

logos-seafoodexpoTEPSA’s stand will be situated in the “Seafood Processing Global” section, in Hall 4.

The fair will take place in the “Brussels Expo” fairground, which stretches over 115.00 m² exhibition surface area distributed over 12 halls. On this occasion, 7 of the halls will be used (numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11).

TEPSA will take this opportunity to showcase its latest developments in stackable multi-format plastic crates.

The new European regulations on packaging and packaging waste promote the circular economy. The objective is to reduce packaging waste, and to do this, packaging reuse and recycling is promoted. The new TEPSA reusable plastic crates are designed to be used from the boat to the retailer, thanks to the different stackable formats, which allow dealers to use the most suitable format for each type of species or client and save loading space in their deliveries with no need to change the packaging.

TEPSA’s logistics network and selection and washing spots allow fish traders to reduce the cost of secondary packaging.

TEPSA produces and manages millions of fish plastic crates every year, with selection and washing centres in a large number of fishing ports and key areas in the Spanish and French commercial circuit. TEPSA’s reusable crates for fish have a very long service life, they therefore eliminate a great deal of single-use packaging.

The circular economy promotes maintaining the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible, in order to avoid them becoming waste material. Our reusable crates are used exclusively with food products, they are kept clean, in controlled areas and their design is destined to improve recyclability, therefore the vast majority of our crates are recycled when they reach the end of their service life. The resulting material is used for manufacturing other products for non-food use such as communications pipe fittings or non-food packaging..
