SUNDAY lunch made easy for the consumer – that’s what’s on offer from a UK packaging company with two alternative solutions for packaging and selling ‘roast dinners’.
Various options for cooking full roasts in a bag in the oven are available from Sirane – an innovative food packaging manufacturing company based in Shropshire.
These include the new Sira-CookTM Supreme bag – perfect even for the Christmas dinner, as the bag is available in numerous sizes including one large enough for roast turkeys.
Simon Balderson, Sirane managing director, said: “Our new Sira-CookTM Supreme cooking bag has so many potential uses – and offers numerous advantages to users.
“It is a foil bag capable of withstanding significant direct heat, allowing for its use in an oven with a full roast chicken or turkey inside. The food will be tender, retain all the juices and flavours as well as the goodness, and could be sold over the counter in the pack.
“For the customer there would be no mess, no smell, and no need to handle the food. The bag can be heat-sealed or folded over, and add genuine value to retail food sales.”
The bag is available in a number of sizes and in a standard and non-stick version. It comes with a clear top panel – so users can see what’s being cooked – and can be heat-sealed.
It also comes with a great opening mechanism – when the bag is hot the top surface can be peeled away, leaving the food on a foil base. It can then be stirred, turned if required, allowed to cook for longer and browned, or served directly.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director for food packaging, said: “The range of sizes offered mean we can offer Sira-CookTM Supreme as a solution for numerous products. The traditional look and feel of the bag should appeal to retailers and customers alike.
“Sira-CookTM Supreme offers premium presentation with premium taste for the end user. It could be used for shipping joints of meat ready packed, or as on over-the-counter solution.”
Sira-CookTM Supreme isn’t the only option Sirane offers for the roast dinner market, with Sira-CookTM PA – a unique packaging solution for meat, fish and poultry which allows food to be packed, shipped, retailed and cooked in the same package – also available.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies added: “The material absorbs the fat released during cooking, ensuring crisp, clean food. Sira-CookTM PA is a simple solution, a transparent bag in which the meat will cook to perfection, shouldn’t stick, and will not dry out.”
The bags allow the food to be cooked in its own juices for added succulency. The food can be cooked without the need for a baking tray, and the oven remains clean.
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.
