Packing and transport

TradeVine ensures the cold chain is maintained from farm to consumer.

Once their core temperature is reduced to approximately 6C they get packed inside a cool room into poly boxes with frozen gel packs on the bottom and 9mm damp foam inners separating the gel packs from the marron. Unlike lobsters, marron can survive for 5 – 6 days in a dormant state. On arrival, to ensure maximum storage life, you simply refrigerate them (2–8 °C). 

TradeVine is equipped to consolidate marron orders with other West Australian seafood and presihable products that require chilled transport. Consolidation will often make freight forwarding more cost effective and small orders viable.
