Board products from Sirane including cake boards, salmon boards and pizza boards

SIRANE now offers a wide range of board products – including cake boards, pizza boards, salmon boards, patisserie boards and cake collars.

The range includes standard and eco-friendly versions of many products – and we are looking at building up the range – with new products on the horizon.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Our product range is based around fibrous board products, many of which are already compostable and recyclable.

“We plan to extend this product range, using our Earth Packaging banner, into all areas of food packaging which currently use plastic-coated and laminated boards. We are combining our expertise in board with our expertise in other areas, such as absorbency and paper-based films, to create some exciting new products.

“Our sustainable plastic-free sandwich packs – the Earthwedge – are a great example of this, taking our board and our plastic-free films to create a product which is not only environmentally friendly but also has the necessary shelf-life.

“This will undoubtedly be the first of many innovative board product launches – but in the meantime, take a look at our existing range of board-based products.”

Cake boards and patisserie boards are available from Sirane in a range of sizes, colours and types – including eco-friendly. Salmon boards are available as standard in combinations of gold, silver and black. We can also supply U-cards/J-cards.

We can also supply a range of specialist ovenable boards.

Simon Balderson added: “It’s also possible to combine our board with other existing Sirane technologies, such as susceptor for crisping food in a microwave. So, for example, a U-card could be printed on the outside and have susceptor on the inside allowing the contents to be crisped effectively and quickly in a microwave.”

Earlier this year Sirane completed the acquisition of Olympic - a UK-based manufacturer of board products supplying the bakery, fish and cake industries among others which is based just outside Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Now known as Sirane Stroud, the site has specialised board processing equipment and are highly skilled in board processing operations. They supply products throughout the UK through both via distributors and direct sales.

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).

Absorbency from Sirane - wide range of absorbent products

ABSORBENCY is a vital packaging requirement for many food and medical applications and Sirane supplies a wide range of varied absorbent solutions on a global basis.

Absorbent pads are used with meat, poultry, fruit, wet cheeses and seafood, and we can also supply oven-ready pads (also suitable for elevated temperature packing), fish crate liners and tray dividers - absorbency forms an integral part of our food packaging range.

But absorbency also forms a core packaging component in many medical & healthcare scenarios, in many instances a pad must be used to ensure compliance with the rules and regulations governing the transportation of potentially dangerous fluids.

And a wide range of absorbent products are also used in mortuaries.

With additional manufacturing now taking place in Poland, Russia and Mexico, and Sirane also now operating in Australia and South Africa, it really does not matter whereabouts in the world you are based, Sirane can help fulfil your absorbency requirements.

And if you’re looking for greener, more eco-friendly alternatives for your packaging, you’re also in the right place… Sirane’s unique paper-based Earthpad is going from strength to strength, while we can also supply compostable pads made using bio-materials.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Absorbency and absorbent products is one of Sirane's major strengths, and the company manufactures a wide range of customised absorbent products.  We can supply all types of absorbency levels and types, including liquid, blood, odour and ethylene – you name it, and we have a solution for absorbing it.

“Our absorbent pads can be supplied with integrated odour control and anti-bacterial/anti-microbial or anti-fungal properties if required. We can offer a wide range of sizes, colours, absorbency levels and formats, and tailor our products to suit your exact needs – we’ll make what you need rather than just supply a set of standard products.

“Whether absorbency is used to help extend shelf-life or improve the appearance of the product, or a legal packaging requirement for medical samples, we are there to help.”

As a development company, Sirane is always looking to better what it has and further improve what we offer - our paper-based compostable absorbent pads for anyone looking to ‘go green’ are the most recent example of that ethos in practice.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Sirane’s constantly evolving its product range, and we realised there was a definite need in the market for a compostable & recyclable pad solution.

“Our Earthpad Resource has been well received in the market - and will be the first of many new developments in this area. Sirane’s always been a solutions company, and this is a long-term solution for a product used in large quantities across the industry - the humble but often vital absorbent pad repackaged into a more environmentally friendly format.

“And, of course we’ve had a compostable Dri-Fresh Resolve pad in our range for a while.”

Other recent absorbent product developments include our Dri-Fresh ABM pads for meat and poultry which are impregnated with a blend of natural bio-flavonoids and organic acids that work together to extend shelf-life, and Dri-Fresh Soft-Hold pads for delicate soft-fruits –which are both absorbent and cushioned, offering the fruit much more protection.

We also supply absorbent Fat-Traps for oven-grills, and absorbent rotisserie liners.

In addition, we manufacture an anti-slip absorbent floor mat – sold mainly into medical and healthcare – and particularly into operating theatres and scrubs areas, where fluid is an issue. These mats are currently supplied into the NHS via NHS Supply Chain. However, recently we’ve also sold mats into food production facilities – for example cheese making plants, where wet floors are a problem in certain stages of the process.

Simon Balderson said: “Health and safety in the workplace is just as important in food production as it is in operation theatres, and anti-slip absorbent floor mats are a great solution for any working environment where fluid could become a hazard.

“If you’re needing absorbency, then Sirane is the market leader. If it can be done, we’re the company to make it happen, so why not give us the chance to help sort your problems?
