A smarter solution to microwave cooking


Innovative food packaging company Sirane has launched Sira-Cook Smart-Release– a microwave bag with seals that open during cooking allowing for perfect infusion of sauces.

Sira-CookSmart Release is perfect for many foods, including seafood – with perfect tasting fish and sauce in just a matter of minutes thanks to the dual-vent technology.

Coldwater Seafood were one of the first companies to take up Sira-CookSmart-Release – with the innovative bag allowing fish dishes to be sold by retail giant Marks & Spencer.

Ian Beardsall, director of product process and development, said: “Sira-CookSmart-Release is a truly great and cost-effective concept. The seals will only open at certain temperatures, so the food is cooked to absolute perfection in just a few minutes.

“The venting seals on Sira-Cook Smart-Release can be tuned for retailers to meet the cooking requirements of any contents, be it seafood, poultry, or even desserts.”

With Sira-CookSmart-Release food and sauces are kept separate in the packaging – sealed into two compartments. The central dividing seal has been designed to rupture in a controlled way, allowing the mixing of the contents of the two compartments.

A second vent in the main compartment then opens, maintaining pressure in the bag.

M&S has launched three Sira-CookSmart-Release products to date under the tag-line Quick To Cook: Lochmuir Salmon with Watercress; Cod with Parsley and Haddock Mornay.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director for food packaging, said: “We are expecting significant levels of interest in Sira-CookSmart-Release. Food retailers can now offer stunning food cooked in just a couple of minutes in a microwave.

“Sira-CookSmart-Release is a cost-effective solution to a long-standing problem.”

Sira-CookSmart-Release was among the items on show at the European Seafood Expo in Brussels from April 24-26, and Sirane anticipates high levels of interest in the product.
