UK-based Elliott Absorbent Products has developed a line of ultra-thin, ‘super-absorbent’ sealed-edge pads for fresh meat and fish.
UniDry – which is available in both pads and reels – uses a proprietary ‘Infinity Core’, which delivers blood and water absorbency of between 7.5 litres and 26 litres per square metre. Elliott’s claims that UniDry has the lowest carbon footprint of any high-absorbency pad on the market.
The new offering is said to use half the cellulose and plastic required to make traditional pads, and due to its ultra-thin construction, can enable companies to cut emissions from transport and storage, while also making major packaging reductions.
According to Elliott’s, absorbency tests showed that compared with a traditional pad, UniDry was 45% more absorbent when used with a typical 600g lean beef joint, and 278% more effective with a 135g venison steak.
Matt Hankins, managing director of Elliott Absorbent Products, said: “UniDry is a major innovation, we are doing more with less and providing customers with a product that improves absorbency and shelf-life and boosts their sustainability performance”.
