PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Thermally-insulated bags including anti-bacterial

Thermally-insulated shopping bags - including anti-bacterial

SIRANE’S thermally-insulated bags keep chilled food cold – and hot food hot. They’re a great way of keeping your brand in the public eye, via your customers…

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...

“No-one really considers the health implications of re-using shopping bags,” added Simon. “but scientific studies show bacteria build-up can be potentially harmful, and that there’s often as much bacteria on the outside of meat packaging as on the inside. There’s advice out there that people should wash bags-for-life, but how many people do this?

“Anti-bacterial thermally-insulated bags stop customers having to even worry about this.”

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.

FOOD PACKAGING: Absorbent pads for a range of cheese types

CheesePads

SIRANE’S range of absorbent pads for cheese can improve shelf-life as well as improving product presentation – and we have pads for a range of different cheese types.

Whether it’s creamy cheese, wet cheese or drier cheeses, and whether you’re a producer or a retailer, we have products that can help ensure your product is perfect.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Absorbent cheese pads are perfect for ensuring great product presentation and extending shelf-life of soft, wet and creamy cheeses.

“They are also commonly used by producers with freshly processed cheeses, the pads are used to sit below the cheese and absorb unwanted liquid while ripening the cheese.

“But we also have products suitable for use on the shelf/counter and in packaging. Different cheeses have very different requirements, but the range covers all bases, whether it’s a fresh, wet cheese or a drier cheese such as goats’ cheese, there’s an absorbent pad to help.”

Our standard Dri-Fresh® Fresh-Hold™ absorbent cheese pads absorb excess moisture and whey within the pack perfectly and so preserve the quality & freshness of packaged cheese. Used predominantly for wet cheeses, they are lightweight and use no adhesives.

Dri-Fresh® Fresh-Hold™ absorbent cheese pads can be treated with additional processes; AF which will inhibit mould growth or IR which will ensure a high level of sterility.

But there are other options available, suitable for different cheese types: Inflex where low absorbency is needed with fresh cheeses; pads for very fresh creamy cheeses producing lots of liquid; pads for maturing drier cheeses such as goats’ cheese where the microporous surface allows for excellent air flow, and we can also offer absorbent crepe.

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.
