THINKING-COOKING: The perfect addition to your meat or fish counter


LOOKING for a new product range that will sit nicely with your fresh food sales? A product that will help your customers cook the fresh fish or meat they’ve just bought?...

Our Thinking-Cooking range has been designed around the needs of busy people, who want quality products and solutions which help them make quick and easy food without sacrificing on the taste and the flavour. In short, they want the best of both worlds…

It could be the perfect addition to your fresh meat or fresh fish counter.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, Sirane sales director, said: “Thinking-Cooking offers some great products, which make a real difference to people’s time in the kitchen. Steam-cooking bags, for example, reduce mess – and make cooking a stunning fish meal simple.

“Fat-Trap’s stop customers having to spend time scrubbing the grill pan – a job no-one enjoys – while our fresh produce bags help keep fruit and veg fresh for longer.”

The full Thinking-Cooking range currently includes: oven/microwave steam-cooking bags; oven/BBQ bags; oven-grill liners; slow-cooker liners; nylon roasting bags in two sizes; deli-bags; and breathable bags for extending the shelf-life of fresh produce.

Whether you’re running a supermarket or a small farm-shop, a butcher’s or a fishmonger’s, they’re a great additional product line with something for everyone.

The BBQ/Oven bag is available in packs of three, each bag 220x300mm. Additional sizes are available on request for anyone interested in stocking larger sized bags. The bags are non-stick, making them ideal for fish which would otherwise stick to the bag.

The Steam-Cooking Bag is an oven or microwave cooking bag, which seals in all the juices and flavours and allows healthy eating and fast food to be combined. They can be used for seafood, poultry and vegetables… whether it is steamed fish or asparagus with a flavoured butter, chicken with a glaze or buttered new potatoes, they come out full of flavour.

These two items are also selling well in the US, where our distribution partners Elkay Plastics are selling them both online and in stores under their popular Ready. Chef. Go brand.

Nylon Roasting Bags are available in two different sizes – ideal for chickens and turkeys - and will crisp up the bird perfectly, stop it from drying out, and significantly reduce cooking times.

Fat-Catcher absorbent grill liners can be used on oven-grills to soak up the fat – healthier food and less cleaning – while Slow-Cooker Liners are used to do exactly that, to line the slow-cooker during the cooking process, reducing both cleaning and wear & tear.

Our Incredible Fruit & Veg Bags are just that – incredible. They allow customers to get many extra days shelf-life on their fresh produce and reduce significantly the amount of fruit and vegetables they are forced to throw away each week. Our Deli-Fresh food bags also offer significant shelf-life extension on items such as cakes, pasties and cold meats.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies added: “The Thinking-Cooking range is a great range of useful products that consumers will find themselves using again and again. We’re happy to supply boxes of retail packs, or in shelf-ready packaging – the choice is yours.

“Imagine being able to sell your customer some fresh fish, some fresh vegetables, and then showing them that they can also buy the bags to cook them in…. or that you can also offer them an absorbent grill pan liner to go with the sausages and bacon.”

Thinking-Cooking is also becoming increasingly popular in the Baltic states, where our distributors Europola have been selling the range both in supermarkets and online at

FOOD EXPO GREECE: Sirane distributors Kapelis enjoy a great show

SIRANE was represented at Food Expo Greece recently – one of south eastern Europe’s leading food trade shows -  where our agents/distributors Kapelis Packaging had a very successful show.

Kapelis Packaging is one of latest additions to the Sirane network of agents and distributors – with the aim of taking our food packaging products into the Greek market – and Food Expo Greece offered the record 72,000 visitors the chance to discover Sirane, with part of the stand dedicated to our products.

Kapelis Packaging are suppliers of both packaging machines and packaging consumables into the food industry, with products sold including trays, films and pouches – so Sirane’s product range is a great fit, which has allowed them to increase their portfolio.

Sirane has a number of food packaging specialisms, including absorbency, shelf-life, ovenable and microwaveable bags, susceptors and many other packaging solutions. Sectors supplied include meat, poultry, seafood, fruit and convenience food.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “We are enjoying working with Kapelis Packaging, as their company offers us great potential in an area that we don’t yet cover and they have a great team. Feeback from Kapelis is that the show was very busy for them, and the Sirane product range created real interest.

“Kapelis will be not only able to offer products already sold in the region, but also new innovations and technologies currently unknown – an exciting venture and an opportunity that I am sure the Kapelis Packaging team are in a position to make the most of.

“With 1,200 exhibitors and thousand of key buyers from not just south eastern Europe,  but also from much further afield, Food Expo Greece is without doubt one of the places to be for the food industry in that part of Europe, and it is great that Sirane was represented there by Kapelis.”

Sirane is a highly innovative packaging product development-to-manufacture company based in Telford, Shropshire. It has four divisions: food packaging; medical and healthcare; industrial and horticultural, and a number of agents and distributors across the world.

Products that Kapelis can offer the Greek market include absorbent pads for meat, fruit, poultry and seafood, anti-microbial pads, ovenable absorbent bags, oven/BBQ bags, steam-cooking bags for oven/microwave, boneguard protection for meat, and much more.
