Sirane introduces new catering & food service range

Sirane's new Sira-Serve range includes nylon catering liners

Sirane has introduced a new range to its food packaging portfolio – a range of time, labour and cost-saving products aimed at catering, hospitality and food service industries.

Sirane's Sira-Serv™ range includes nylon-based materials for lining vats, saucepans, pots and chafing dishes, with a large range of sizes and options. We also have materials for hot-fill, hot shortening bags for disposing of cooking oil and liners for rotisseries & hot food counters.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “The more we’ve learnt about some materials, the more we’ve realised they lend themselves perfectly to catering and food service applications.

“We already sell slow-cooker lines as part of our popular Thinking-Cooking range. However, in different sizes, these nylon liners are fantastic for lining catering pans, pots and trays.

“We’ve sized them to fit the standard Gastronorm sizes, and they offer numerous benefits to users: they reduce cleaning time; reduce wear and tear; help reduce bills associated with hot water; and even help reduce the amount of fats and grease entering the drains.

“Catering liners also help reduce food wastage – saving companies money – as the food won’t dry out and stick/congeal at the bottom of the pan. This can be very beneficial in environments such as a hotel breakfast, where food is kept warm for a while.”

Nylon has some tremendous qualities, which make it perfect for this kind of use; it is tough, durable, has very high heat resistance, and it can also be used in hot-fill situations.

Nylon hot-shortening bags – which can be filled with hot cooking oil and used for disposal – and nylon hot-fill liners are also in the Sira-Serv range. Hot-fill liners can be used in industrial food processing to line large vats, and can be removed while the product is hot.

“Hot fill liners,” said Simon Balderson, MD, “can save companies money. There is no time wasted waiting for products to cool down, no time spent scrubbing the vats after use.

“Nylon is an incredibly clean material, so there is no leaching/contamination. This level of cleanliness means it can also be used in processes such as roasting spices/bread crumbs.”

Another popular Sirane product – the rotisserie liner – has been rebranded as a Sira-Serv product. These absorbent liners can also be used to line hot-food display counters.

Consisting of a highly absorbent material covered with heat-reflective elevated-temperature-resistant film, Sira-Serv™ Supreme™ rotisserie liners soak away excess fat dripping from the meat while it is cooking – ensuring it is displayed in an attractive way as possible.

Sirane is a highly innovative packaging product development-to-manufacture company based in Telford, Shropshire. It has four divisions: food packaging; medical and healthcare; industrial and horticultural. Specialisms include absorbency and cooking bags.

Products include absorbent pads for meat, seafood and fruit, a vast range of cooking bags for the oven and microwave, products for extending shelf-life, products for food presentation, and susceptor-based products for crisping food in the microwave.
