SIRANE’S Earth Packaging solutions can really help you boost your green credentials by cutting both packaging waste and food waste. Environmentally-friendly packaging is in the news at the moment, as is reducing food waste, but what if your packaging can actively help contribute to both goals.
Our Earth Packaging Products fall into one of 3 categories: RESOURCE, RESOLVE AND RE-USE. RESOURCE = plastic-free paper-based products, RESOLVE = compostable products, and RE-USE = easily recyclable.
Compostable food packaging from Sirane includes our breathable bags and films for extending the life of fresh produce. Sira-Flex Resolve is a natural biopolymer which we can make into bags or films, and which can extend shelf-life by many days. Other compostable products include our absorbent pads for meat, poultry, seafood and fruit. Many of our Dri-Fresh absorbent products can be offered in compostable form – under the name Dri-Fresh Resolve; for Sirane Resolve = compostable.
...and then there’s the Earthpouch – an industry first. Earthpouch is an award-winning food packaging solution made from a paper with a 100% plastic-free heat-sealable coating which is then formed into a preformed stand-up pouch which provides total food security for dry and moist food products. This pouch is easily recyclable as part of the paper stream! We can also offer Earthfilm, the same material but for flow-wrap. Barrier and high barrier versions are available. In addition, we offer a range of absorbent pads using only paper!....
And we have recylable products, such as our thermally-insulated bags which are reusable and are easily recyclable, so offer environmentally-friendly credentials.
But not all our Earth Packaging solutions are for food packaging. Many of our horticultural products are compostable, including absorbent water-retaining flower pouches, breathable packaging films, rose-stem wraps, and compostable plant pots.
We also have Sow and Grow - a compostable growing media for cress, mustard etc.
And don’t forget, Sirane is - and always will be - a development company. If the sort of product you need in compostable or recyclable form isn’t available yet, give us a call anyway, we’re experts in material science and may well be able to develop the solution you need....
