Live Lobster to China!

Polar Thermal’s reputation for solving problems in an ethical way is spreading. It may have escaped your notice but the ongoing trade spat between the US and China has created opportunities for others.

Nova Scotia, the Canadian Province most famous for its seafood, is having a bonanza. Nova Scotia’s live lobster exports to China have totalled £130 million in the first six months of 2019, up 144 per cent over the same period in 2018, according to the province. Nova Scotia’s lobster industry provides the lion’s share of the Canadian supply of live lobster.

Most of the 18,000 tonnes of lobster were exported out of Halifax Stanfield International Airport in 2019, a major challenge as the key for their success is to transport the lobster live and healthy to their destination.

What better way to achieve this than with Polar Thermal’s breathable shipping cover system complete with coolant bandoleers.

In the same period interest in Polar’s products has resulted in new customers and markets opening up in Canada and Alaska with the company now supplying the US Coastguard in Kodiak and Edmonton International Airport in Alberta.
