The move sets a new standard in the seafood industry.

North Coast Seafoods Launches New 100% Recyclable Packaging

  (UNITED STATES, 7/1/2024)

North Coast Seafoods, a leading East Coast importer, processor, and supplier of premium-quality, sustainably sourced seafood, has announced its groundbreaking partnership with Australia-based Disruptive Packaging. This collaboration introduces a revolutionary innovation and marks a “first” in the U.S. seafood industry: 100% recyclable and reusable packaging.

For the past decade, North Coast Seafoods has been actively searching for high-quality, sustainable, recyclable packaging alternatives to conventional, non-recyclable packaging that are scalable across their expansive operations. However, being recyclable alone was not sufficient; the packaging solution also had to meet rigorous performance standards for sturdiness, leak-proofing, and temperature control.

The introduction of UNICOR® packaging by North Coast Seafoods and Disruptive Packaging marks a significant step towards a more sustainable future.

With Unicor®, North Coast has found its ideal solution and has officially begun transitioning its seafood packaging, a process that will continue to roll out over the coming months.

To meet the increasing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging options, North Coast Seafoods and Disruptive Packaging are taking a bold step towards a greener future.

Some benefits and key attributes that make Unicor the ideal solution for North Coast Seafoods and its customers:

  • It is composed of up to 70% calcium carbonate and 20-30% HDPE (high-density polyethylene)
  • It is 100% closed-loop recyclable, meaning that the material can be recycled indefinitely without losing its quality
  • It offers excellent cold-chain performance
  • It is waterproof & leakproof and does not chip and flake like conventional packaging materials
  • It’s incredibly durable, has passed all drop tests required for strength, protection, and durability, and has all the appropriate airline approvals.
Composed of up to 70% calcium carbonate and 20-30% high-density polyethylene (HDPE), UNICOR® is a truly closed-loop recyclable material. This means it can be recycled indefinitely without losing quality, offering a sustainable option that doesn't compromise on performance.

This innovative packaging solution is both environmentally responsible and cost-effective, providing a win-win for businesses, customers, and the planet.

“After years of R&D and search, North Coast Seafoods is thrilled to partner with Disruptive Packaging and introduce Unicor® 100% recyclable packaging to our customers,” said Christian L’Heureux, Marketing Manager at North Coast Seafoods. “As a company with a deeply anchored legacy of sustainability, we continuously seek ways to reduce our environmental impact. With Unicor®, we can now offer our customers a sustainable packaging solution without compromising the quality and freshness of our seafood.

This partnership and packaging aren’t just strong, but Boston Strong; we’re proud to be pioneering this significant advancement in packaging as one of America’s first to utilize Unicor.”

Recycling UNICOR® follows the same process as HDPE recycling. End users can return the boxes to collection points as they would with their other number 2 plastics, where they can be pooled and then sent to recyclers.

“Disruptive Packaging is delighted to be partnered with North Coast Seafoods, Boston’s leading seafood processing company,” says David Kahn, Marketing Director for Disruptive Packaging. “We aim to leave a legacy of replacing non-recyclable packaging with our revolutionary UNICOR(r) packaging. North Coast Seafoods is paving the way as they have for many years. We are thrilled to have them officially join the Disruptive Club.”

With this game-changing solution, North Coast Seafoods continues to push forward on its journey towards a greener and cleaner planet.
