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.
