How will my freshly steamed Blue Crabs arrive?

Ensuring safe, undamaged products, especially steamed Blue Crabs requires an exact technique. Our packing team recently recorded a video to show you the procedure. We follow five important steps: 1) Choose a cooler & box that gives ample room for spice, mallets, crabs, ice packs, and packing paper. 2) Carefully load ice packs & nonfood items and separate with an insulating bag. 3) Position crabs belly-up in a second insulating bag to maintain tender, moist meat & season with JO Spice #2. 4) Close the second insulating bag and position more ice packs and seal the cooler. 5) Insert the high-quality packing in a box for ready shipping. Smile, since you have just shipped Blue Crabs professionally!
