BluWrap’s technology allows for the reduction of CO2 emissions by more than 99% without using ice or environmentally harmful polystyrene packaging. This technology maintains an all-natural, controlled-atmosphere environment so fish and other perishable proteins arrive by sea freight in the destination market with the same fresh quality as the day they were shipped.
Based in San Francisco CA, BluWrap also has operations in Talcahuano, Chile. For more information, access the website at www.bluwrap.com.
