Earth Packaging – an overview

Earth Packaging from Sirane…

SIRANE’S Earth Packaging solutions can really help you boost your green credentials by cutting both packaging waste and food waste. Environmentally-friendly packaging is in the news at the moment, as is reducing food waste, but what if your packaging can actively help contribute to both goals.

Our Earth Packaging Products fall into one of 4 categories: PAPER-BASED, BOARD-BASED, BIO-BASED or recyclable plastics – our REPEAT range.


Compostable food packaging from Sirane includes our breathable bags and films for extending the life of fresh produce, cling-film, shrink-wrap and fresh produce bags. Sira-Flex Resolve is a natural biopolymer which we can make into bags or films, and which can extend shelf-life by many days. Other compostable products include our absorbent pads for meat, poultry, seafood and fruit. Many of our Dri-Fresh absorbent products can be offered in compostable form – under the name Dri-Fresh Resolve; for Sirane Resolve = compostable.


…and then there’s the Earthpouch – an industry first. Earthpouch is an award-winning food packaging solution made from a paper with a 100% plastic-free heat-sealable coating which is then formed into a preformed stand-up pouch which provides total food security for dry and moist food products. This pouch is easily recyclable as part of the paper stream! We can also offer Earthfilm, the same material but for flow-wrap. Barrier and high barrier versions are available. In addition, we offer a range of absorbent pads using only paper!….


Sirane is a specialist converter of board products, and many of our products can be supplied as eco-friendly solutions. Instead of laminated boards with a plastic layer, for example, we can offer coated boards for use as cake boards, patisserie boards, pizza boards and more. Options include ovenable.


Our recyclable plastics are sold under our RePEat brand. These are PE-based packaging solutions, including stand-up pouches, flow-wrap films, vacuum pouches and insulated bags.

But not all our Earth Packaging solutions are for food packaging. Many of our horticultural products are compostable, including absorbent water-retaining flower pouches, breathable packaging films, rose-stem wraps, and compostable plant pots.

We also have Sow and Grow – a compostable growing media for cress, mustard etc.

And don’t forget, Sirane is – and always will be – a development company. If the sort of product you need in compostable or recyclable form isn’t available yet, give us a call anyway, we’re experts in material science and may well be able to develop the solution you need….
