CHRISTMAS FOOD PACKAGING: There's still time to make your products stand out on the shelves


CHRISTMAS tends to be a busy time of the year for food producers & retailers, but have you thought about what packaging would make your products stand out from the crowd?

Nylon roasting bags, salmon boards with a festive design, oven-ready dividers for pigs in blankets and other side dishes; our varied range of food packaging solutions will help give customers a stress-free Christmas – and help your products stand out on the shelves.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “As ever, Christmas orders are already flooding in. If you’re looking to order stock for Christmas sales, there’s still time – but it needs to be soon. But of course for some of you we might already be considering Christmas 2018…

“Throughout the food chain, packaging usage increases at Christmas. Whether it is absorbent meat pads or oven-ready absorbent pads, ovenable food dividers or shaped and folded crepe paper, cooking bags for meat, fish or vegetables, Sirane can make sure you’re well supplied – whether it is for standard year-round lines or seasonal lines.

“Whether you’re looking for purely functional food packaging solutions, or something that helps make your product that bit special, Sirane’s product range is a good starting point.”

Sirane’s range of absorbent pads for meat, seafood and poultry include standard, oven-ready, compostable and our new pads with integrated anti-microbial properties which help extend shelf-life – whatever you’re selling this Christmas, we have an answer.

Of course, for many people Christmas is just turkey and the trimmings – and one of our products, Siralon, can be a fabulous way to make Christmas dinner easy.

Sirane’s new Sira-CookTM Siralon is a unique nylon packaging solution for meat, fish and poultry which allows food to be packed, shipped, retailed and cooked in the same package. The material absorbs the fat released during cooking, ensuring crisp, clean food.

Not only that, but the material can be run down a flow-wrap machine – a first for nylon.

Retailers could flow-wrap the turkey, pre-pack the birds into nylon bags using ties, pack for the customer into bags, or even simply sell the customer our bags in retail packs, as we can offer ‘turkey bags’ in packs of 2 as part of our popular Thinking-Cooking range.

“Turkey flow-wrapped in Siralon could prove to be the ultimate Christmas present for many consumers, particularly the less confident cooks out there. They’d simply need to pierce the bag, place it in the oven, and let it cook. They don’t even need to touch it until it is ready.

 “Whether it is a large processor looking to flow-wrap thousands of turkeys, or a butcher or farm-shop happy to bag their own turkeys, Siralon could be the answer,” added Jeremy.

Cooking turkey in a nylon roasting bag can reduce cooking times significantly, stops the meat drying out and crisps the bird beautifully – without the bag sticking to the skin.

Not selling turkey? Sira-Cook Siralon can be used just as effectively for other joints of meat – including beef, lamb and pork - or for roasting whole fish such as salmon or trout.

Sirane is an innovative packaging design, development, manufacture and solutions company which specialises in areas including absorbency and oven-ready/microwaveable products, compostable packaging, films, boards, absorbent pads, and much more.

Turkey’s far from the only food sold over the Christmas period, and there’s many more products sold which could benefit from a packaging solution supplied by Sirane, especially companies looking to present food well, but in a format which is easy to cook.

 “We’ve a range of oven-ready and microwaveable solutions, as well as products aimed more at food presentation. Christmas dinners come with lots of extras – pigs in blankets and the like – which can also be sold and cooked using our range of oven-ready dividers. The dividers can be customised around your product to fit most standard trays types used.

 “Or you may be looking for siliconised or greaseproof paper for festive snacks”, said Mr Haydn-Davies,“ or shelf-life-enhancing deli bags to sell festive snacks over the counter.

“Whether it is quality absorbent pads made to a specific shape, a festive printed salmon board or boneguard for meat protection, then Sirane could be the solution you need.”
