Saeplast - Insulated Plastic Tubs, Containers, Pallets and Buggies for the food processing industry.

Saeplast is a leading manufacturer of multi-purpose, rotational-moulded insulated plastic containers, tubs, totes, boxes, protein recovery and mollusc purifying systems for use in all sectors of the global food industry, along with an innovative range of hard-wearing plastic pallets and buggies.

Versatile Food Storage and Transportation Equipment

Saeplast equipment is used for storage and transportation in almost every sector of the global food industry. Highly versatile, the company's products are used for a wide spectrum of applications, including:

Fisheries and Fish Processing (on-board and ashore)

  • Shellfish and Seafood
  • Aquaculture
  • Meat and Poultry
  • Pet Foods
  • Dairy Produce
  • Wine Growing
  • Fruit and Vegetables
  • Pharmaceuticals

Multi-purpose Food-grade Containers

Available in sizes ranging from 50 to 1,400 litres Saeplast tubs and containers come in two main types, polyethylene (MPC) insulated and polyurethane (PUR) insulated. Constructed from a tough polyethylene shell with an expanded polyethylene core, Saeplast MPC containers are the tub of choice when strength overrides insulation as the main requirement. When less weight and a higher insulation factor are the prime requirements, Saeplast PUR containers are the solution of choice. Key features include:

Double - Walled polyethylene construction

  • Tough - Robust, long lasting
  • Large capacity - Easy to stack and handle
  • Optimum hygiene - EU/FDA-approved food-grade materials

Specialised Containers

Saeplast also manufactures a range of specialised containers, such as the highly innovative 700l PUR mollusc purifying container, the only insulated container of its kind on the market today and used in the storage and purification of live mussels, oysters, clams and other shellfish, and the Saeplast Protein Recovery System, a secure way of dealing with poultry mortalities.

Frost Resistant Tubs

No matter the type chosen, Saeplast tubs are frost-resistant, while their use as the container of choice in climates ranging from the Arctic to the tropics and in freezing plants around the world has more than demonstrated their ability to withstand wide extremes of temperature and temperature fluctuations.

Easily Repaired, Robust and Hygienic Food Containers

Significantly less prone to cracking than conventional tubs and easily repaired if damage does occur; all Saeplast tubs share the same features of durability, robust construction, and resistance to corrosion. At the same time, rounded edges and surfaces ensure optimum wash-down, ready access from all sides, and easy stacking and handling.

RFID Traceable Food Containers

In addition, many models come available with implanted Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags to meet ever-increasing demands for product traceability and real-time tracking. Many Saeplast tubs are available with ATP certification.

Global Backup

Founded in Iceland in 1984, Saeplast has pursued a policy of placing its production facilities as close as possible to its core markets. The company currently operates production and sales facilities in Canada, Holland, Iceland, Norway, Spain and India. These are backed up by regional sales offices in Mexico, Hong Kong and Vietnam, and a global network of agents and distributors.
