Rubber Bands for Lobsters?

Did you know our rubber bands are used on shellfish? Next time you’re at your local grocery store, check out the rubber bands that are on the lobsters. Chances are they most likely came from Alliance.

Rubber bands are used to protect lobsters and crabs from each other and have the added benefit of protecting those who handle them as well. These bands minimize the probability of damage to soft-shelled claws and maximize the quality and flavor of the meat.

There are different grades of rubber bands for the claws. Flexible bands are used for soft-shelled lobsters and a tighter band is used for hard shells. Our lobster and crab bands exhibit excellent cold resistant properties while maintaining strength and stretch.

Our bands can be customized by size, color and print. Visit our page for more information!
