Cargo Fresh - absorbency for perishable goods in the hold....

SIRANE has developed an absorbent solution for the transportation and protection of perishable goods in the airfreight industry – Cargo Fresh.

Perishable and thermal sensitive goods can often be rejected in the process of being loaded into cargo holds - due to the lack of absorbency/protection.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD said: “With chilled products being exposed to ambient temperatures during transportation there is a risk of high humidity causing condensation, and the possibility of leakage from certain transported goods can bring about the risk of corrosion if not contained.

“This is particularly an issue with products packed with ice, such as seafood.

“Cargo Fresh is a highly effective solution, which is easy to use and offers a high level of protection for both the cargo and the aircraft hold itself.”

Cargo Fresh is a highly absorbent material and acts as a layer of protection or moisture barrier. It will absorb from 1.5 to 10 litres of liquid per square metre, with a barrier coated HDPE film base which prevents liquid penetrating through to the floor and an absorbent top layer. This protects both the goods and the aircraft.

Cargo Fresh can also be used as a solution in shipping containers where there are issues with condensation or ‘container rain’.

It is available as standard in reels 1200mm wide and 73m long, with absorbency of 1.5, 3, 5, 7.5 or 10 litres per square metre available.

Sirane is an innovative packaging development-to-manufacture company, with expertise in absorbency and material science. Specialisms include bags and pouches, absorbent products, shelf-life extension and dual-ovenable products.

It has four main divisions: food packaging; medical & healthcare; horticultural and industrial. The company is based in Telford, Shropshire, with additional manufacturing in Guadalajara (Mexico), Wroclaw (Poland) and Moscow (Russia).

Find us at the Digital Seafood Meeting 2021

SIRANE will be taking part in the Digital Seafood Meeting 2021 – an online industry ‘meet-up’ organised by the team behind the Fish International trade show.

Sales Manager Karl Heggarty, and Marketing Manager Mark Lingard will both be available on the day, for anyone who wants to know more about Sirane’s ‘seafood offering’.

Sirane has food packaging ranges that cover the whole seafood journey, from liners and mats for crate of fresh fish, right through to microwaveable ready-cook packaging.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Sirane’s expertise in absorbency, oven and microwave-ready packaging materials and shelf-life means that wherever you fit within the supply chain, we are a company that has products perfect for you.

“From sea to plate and everywhere in between… whether you are catching and processing the fish, or selling it as a retailer, Sirane’s range of packaging solutions can make a huge difference, whether to shelf-life, product presentation or even profitability.

“Whether it’s absorbency for the fresh catch straight from the boat, or a steam-cooking bag for over-the-counter retail sales of fish food, Sirane has the answers in our range.”

Our two most recent product launches for the seafood industry have been Dri-Fresh Sea-Fresh SP – an absorbent crate liner with excellent wet-strength and which uses no adhesives – and Dri-Fresh Sea-Fresh Ice-Mats, mats which can be used to cover live seafood and maintain a steady release of fresh water to help optimise its condition.

Perfect for crustaceans, such as lobster and crab, the product remains chilled under the Ice-Mat, and the water’s staggered release means the product remains in a premium condition.

Sirane’s Dri-Fresh Sea-Fresh range of absorbent liners – Sea-Fresh SP being the newest addition - quickly and effectively absorbs the melting ice and juices released during transportation. The liquid is absorbed and trapped inside the Sea-Fresh liner to prevent spillage and reduce odour – increasing the saleability of the seafood.  

Other innovative solution including microwave cooking bags, barbecue bags, and nylon that can be flow-wrapped will be on show at the Fish International in Bremen.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director for food packaging, said: “Our barbecue bag is perfect for seafood. The Sira-Cook Supreme bag is also ovenable – which might be a distinct advantage with the unreliable British climate – and allows a product with the sauce to be thrown on the barbecue. It’s a simple solution, offering stunning taste.

“Our bag comes with a non-stick layer, meaning the fish won’t stick to the bag. We can even perforate the layer and add flavours below, that permeate during cooking.

“Anyone involved in seafood and who is looking to add genuine value to their products should come and see us at our stand in Bremen and find out what we can offer.

The bag is available in a number of sizes – including a large bag big enough to take a whole salmon - and in a standard and non-stick version perfect for seafood. It comes with a clear top panel – so users can see what’s being cooked – and the bag can be heat-sealed.

Steam-cooking bags are also a popular product in the seafood sector. Bags can be provided in a range of formats, including self-seal, multi-compartment and stand-up, as well as in a range of colours. We can also custom print/custom brand the bags.

We also offer thermally-insulated products, including standard bags and anti-microbial bags- which are recyclable, and can also be custom printed/branded as required.

And we have recently added Cargo-Fresh – an absorbent material which is the perfect solution for anyone transporting perishable goods, such as seafood, by air.

The Digital Seafood Meeting is the online version of Fish International for 2021 – the show is held in Bremen every two years and sees 300 exhibitors and 12,000 industry visitors

It will take place on April 21 - visit https://fish-international-digital-2021.b2match.io/
