Sirane's Karl Heggarty among speakers at annual Berry Congress

Karl Heggarty will be among the speakers at Berry Congree

SIRANE will be at the Global Berry Congress in Rotterdam later this month – and Sirane’s Karl Heggarty is among the speakers where he will discuss an innovative packaging system.

Global Berry Congress is the annual gathering of all the major players worldwide in the berry market – and this year it is being held in Rotterdam from March 27th-29th.

Sirane has been working alongside Italian firm Ilip in creating a complete packaging system – Life+ - which was unveiled at Fruit Logistica in Berlin earlier this year.

Karl Heggarty said: “Life+ offers shelf-life extension by combining various elements into one complete solution, including the anti-mist punnet tray, packaging films and absorbency.

“We offer the absorbency, with options including anti-bacterial and ethylene absorbency, both of which can have a positive impact on the shelf-life of soft and delicate fruits.

“I’ll be joining Ilip in discussing what we’ve been working on and the results achieved, and how the correct packaging solution can really make a difference in terms of shelf-life.

“I’ll also be available to answers any questions anyone has on Sirane’s technology – both in terms of Ilip’s Life+ packaging system and our contribution, and in general terms.”

Karl will be speaking on Tuesday, March 28 at 10.45am-11.30am as part of the Tech Talk 1 where he will be joined on stage by Roberto Zanichelli, representing Ilip.

Sirane manufactures a range of fruit packaging solutions, including absorbent pads, cushioned fruit pads, anti-microbial pads and pads with ethylene absorbency.

We also offer a range of shelf-life extending breathable bags and films.

Sirane also opened additional manufacturing recently in Guadalajara, Mexico, in the heart of the country’s berry growing region – meaning growers can worth with a local supplier.
