ECO-FRIENDLY: New salmon board from Sirane is both eco-friendly and cost-effective

Recyclable, plastic-free salnon boards from Sirane

SIRANE has launched a new eco-friendly salmon board which is not only recyclable but also cost-effective when compared with the traditional boards.

Our Earthboard Eco boards have been engineered to provide the same performance as the traditional boards, in a format which is easily recycled – but crucially, they are comparable cost wise with the plastic-coated boards commonly used.

And we’ve also developed a range of pearlescent water-based coatings which allow us to supply the boards in the familiar colours of gold, silver and black. It’s also possible to supply boards in any pantone colour, subject to minimum orders.

Ross Griffin, director of board products, said: “Salmon boards are used in the millions on a weekly basis, and the majority of boards in the market are not recyclable, the plastic coatings on the boards mean that they invariably end up in landfill.

“A few years ago we introduced a recyclable board, and whilst popular, it was not quite cost effective for some people, and was only available in certain colours.

Earthboard Eco addresses both of those issues. This is a recyclable board, cost effective when compared with traditional boards, and available in the same colours which have been used in the market for these products for years.

“It’s recyclable kerbside, and is plastic-free, using only water-based coatings.”

Traditional salmon boards use a metallised polyester layer, which cannot be separated from the board. This means the board can be neither recycled nor composted.

Earthboard Eco is one the first major developments from our board division. In early 2022 we opened our Pioneer site – a multi-million-pound investment in a new home for our innovative board division, close to our existing site in Telford.

The same boards can also be used for vacuum packed meats, and charcuterie.

Sirane sources materials from mills worldwide, ensuring we hold materials in stock, and aiming to maintain competitive pricing at all times.

Our high level of innovation means we are always looking at new materials and ways of improving existing products or offering more sustainable alternatives.
