Oysters stay fresh longer with some help from Alliance!

We already knew rubber bands can help people out in a number of ways, but who knew they could help out the seafood industry by keeping oysters fresh longer? Frozen Live Shellfish in Florida has been using our bands with their oysters!

Through a unique process of chilling and banding, the oysters stay fresh naturally until they are ready to be shucked. The chilling slows the oysters metabolism and reduces their stress which allows them to retain their natural seawater. The Alliance bands wrapped around each individual oysters is another layer of protection that keeps them sealed.

This unique method proves once again how rubber bands can be influential in any and all industries! Let us know how you use rubber bands at your work. To see and learn more about these oysters, check out their website here.
