FOOD PACKAGING: First stand at restaurant & takeaway expo for Sirane

Sirane will exhibit at the Restaurant & Take-Away Expo 2018

SIRANE’S will exhibit at the Restaurant & Takeaway Innovation Expo 2018 as we look to introduce some of our more popular food packaging solutions to new markets.

The Restaurant & Takeaway Innovation Expo 2018 takes place at the ExCeL arena, London, from September 25-26 – and it will be Sirane’s first time exhibiting at the show.

A range of products – including thermally-insulated bags for hot and cold food, susceptor for crisping food, cooking bags and even absorbent rotisserie liners will be on display.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “The Restaurant & Takeaway Innovation Expo is a show we’ve visited and thought for a few years might be a good way into a new market. We’ve got lots of products perfect for this sector, and it’s a great opportunity for Sirane.

“I’d expect our thermally-insulated ‘hot food’ bags to be very popular, but we’ve a range of other solutions – and of course we’re also a development company, so anyone in the restaurant & take-away sector with product ideas, please visit our stand.”

Sirane’s thermally-insulated materials keep chilled food cold – but perhaps crucially for this show they also keep hot food hot – and we can offer bags in a range of sizes. Bags can be digitally-printed, allowing for short runs without the need for set-up costs.

Simon Balderson added: “This product is also fully recyclable, and we can even supply it made from a material in which up to 40% of the material has been replaced by recycled materials and sea-shells… so it’s an environmentally-friendly solution.”

Used by supermarket shoppers and small independent food outlets alike, they are a reusable bag ideal for transporting fresh good home, delivery services, marketing and promotion - with many people opting for their own bespoke ‘branded’ bag.

Sirane’s insulated bags come with a unique handle designed to make the bags comfortable for the consumer to carry – they’re the bag your customers will reach for…

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “For restaurants and takeaways wanting to send people away with hot-food that stays hot, insulated bags could be the answer.

“Our anti-bacterial option can also protect customers long-term against harmful bacteria, meaning they can continue to use your bag with your branding again and again.”

Sirane’s food packaging range also offers a number of other products which should be well-received at the show – and many of which won’t have been seen there before.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Our susceptor-based products allow food to be crisped up in a microwave, which is perfect for anyone wanting to add pizza slices, paninis etc. without having to keep warm – they can just heat them quickly as required.

“We also offer a wide-range of steam-cooking bags, which may well have a place in both the restaurant and takeaway sectors, due to their flexible uses. We have nylon roasting bags which could be popular in restaurants, and this really is just a snap-shot.

“We also have absorbent rotisserie liners – perfect for lining rotisseries as well as other hot-food display areas – cutting down on the mess and helping to improve presentation. So, all in all, Sirane’s stand is going to be well worth a visit if you’re going to be at the show.”

Sirane is an innovative packaging design, development, manufacture and solutions company which specialises in areas including absorbency and ovenable/microwaveable products, compostable packaging, films, boards, absorbent pads, and much more.

Sirane’s stand at the Restaurant & Takeaway Innovation Expo 2018 can be found at 2306.

NEW: Recyclable thermally-insulated liners added to packaging range

Thermally-insulated packaging liners

SIRANE’S thermally-insulated materials keep chilled food cold – and hot food hot – and we’ve recently added liners to our already popular range of bags.

An increase in enquiries for a recyclable insulated liner solution has seen Sirane develop a product which is more environmentally friendly than alternatives on the market.

The liner has been developed by B&G Products – acquired by the Sirane Group earlier this year – and has a wide-range of potential uses, including online food retailers.

Peter Ralten, of B&G Products, said: “We were asked to find a solution that was fully recyclable, and this uses only components that are PE based, so is exactly that.

“We can even incorporate anti-bacterial technology into the liners, and also offer a version where 40% of the material is replaced with a sea-shell-based product and recycled materials.

“In addition, we can vary the amount of insulation to ensure optimum performance.”

The liners are a development/extension based on our thermally-insulated bag range, and like the thermally-insulated bags they are available with custom printing or plain. We can make a range of sizes and styles to fit a whole range of potential applications.

Used by supermarket shoppers and small independent food outlets alike, they are a reusable bag ideal for transporting fresh good home, delivery services, marketing and promotion - with many people opting for their own bespoke ‘branded’ bag.

Sirane’s insulated bags come with a unique handle designed to make the bags comfortable for the consumer to carry – they’re the bag your customers will reach for…

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Whether you’re a supermarket or a farm-shop, selling fresh meat or hot-food, insulated bags could be the answer. We can custom-brand or supply with generic print, and digitally printing allows for shorter print runs.

“Our anti-bacterial option can also protect customers long-term against harmful bacteria.”

The ‘danger zone’ for food is between 15OC and 50OC, during which rapid microbial growth takes place - and keeping food away from this temperature zone can prevent food-borne illnesses. However, re-usable bags themselves can also become carriers of harmful bacteria, so an integrated anti-bacterial technology protects against bacteria build-up.

Active anti-bacterial properties (from Biomaster) are built into the insulated bags during the manufacturing process, so the protection will last for as long as the bag does...

The same anti-bacterial properties could be incorporated into thermally-insulated liners.

Both off-the-shelf and custom-printed versions of the bag are available, and there 

are a range of potential sizes offered, including bags small enough to be lunch-bags.
