SHOW: Plastic-free Earthpouch will be a major focus at Packaging Innovations

Sirane's plastic-free Earthpouch - an eco-friendly packaging solution

SIRANE’S award-winning plastic-free packaging ‘Earthpouch’ will be a major focus when we exhibit at Packaging Innovations at the NEC later this month.

Now available in standard, barrier and high-barrier, our Earthpouch is ideal for anyone looking to remove unnecessary plastics from their packaging.

Perfect for a range of dry and moist products – including granolas, porridge oats, grains, health/diet supplements and more - the Earthpouch is a paper-based solution with a heat-sealable coating, which is preformed into a stand-up pouch.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Earthpouch is a plastic-free solution, a paper-based material with a plastic-free coating which is perfect for a range of products. We can supply it with a range of different barriers, to suit your needs.

“We can also supply the same plastic-free material in reel format for anyone looking to flow-wrap – this would be our Earthfilm – and also as Earthbags.

“If you’re serious about moving away from plastics, then this – and many of the other products in our Earth Packaging range – might be exactly what you’re looking for.”

2018 was a big year for the Earthpouch with some major industry recognition– it won a Green Apple Award, presented at the Houses of Parliament, and it also secured first place at the UK Packaging Awards in the Resource Efficient Pack of the Year category. The Earthpouch was also recognised at the Sustainable Food Awards in Amsterdam, where it finished third in the sustainable packaging category.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “The Earthpouch is a fabulous product, and we were honoured to receive industry recognition and pick-up two top awards.

“Sirane’s constantly innovating, and the environment is at the forefront of a lot of our thinking. Plastics – and perhaps more specifically removing plastics where possible – is the hot-topic, and it’s great that Sirane is able to offer this product.”

One of the questions we’re often asked is ‘how do I fill the pouch?’ We’ve also recently added a pouch-filling line to our offering, the M7, which is compatible with the Earthpouch – and there will be a working machine on our stand.

The Earthpouch is just one of a range of compostable/recyclable products and packaging solutions Sirane has developed over the years – and it has been placed in our Earth Packaging range: compostable; recyclable and sustainable.

We’re already working on enhancing and expanding the Earthpouch range, including higher-barrier pouches, ovenable versions and more – the Earthpouch is not just a product, it’s the start of a whole range of plastic-free products.

Other products in the Earth Packaging range include paper-based absorbent pads, compostable & breathable packaging films, and compostable boards.

Sirane is an innovative food 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.

Packaging Innovations runs at the NEC, Birmingham, from February 27-28. Our stand at the show is L30 – right next to the popular Eco-Pack Theatre.

We’re also exhibiting at AusPack in Melbourne, Australia, where there will be a chance to meet the new Sirane Australia team. Visit them on Stand A226. AusPack runs at the Melbourne Convention Centre from March 26-29, 2019.
