FOOD PACKAGING: Absorbent pads for a range of cheese types


SIRANE’S range of absorbent pads for cheese can improve shelf-life as well as improving product presentation – and we have pads for a range of different cheese types.

Whether it’s creamy cheese, wet cheese or drier cheeses, and whether you’re a producer or a retailer, we have products that can help ensure your product is perfect.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Absorbent cheese pads are perfect for ensuring great product presentation and extending shelf-life of soft, wet and creamy cheeses.

“They are also commonly used by producers with freshly processed cheeses, the pads are used to sit below the cheese and absorb unwanted liquid while ripening the cheese.

“But we also have products suitable for use on the shelf/counter and in packaging. Different cheeses have very different requirements, but the range covers all bases, whether it’s a fresh, wet cheese or a drier cheese such as goats’ cheese, there’s an absorbent pad to help.”

Our standard Dri-Fresh® Fresh-Hold™ absorbent cheese pads absorb excess moisture and whey within the pack perfectly and so preserve the quality & freshness of packaged cheese. Used predominantly for wet cheeses, they are lightweight and use no adhesives.

Dri-Fresh® Fresh-Hold™ absorbent cheese pads can be treated with additional processes; AF which will inhibit mould growth or IR which will ensure a high level of sterility.

But there are other options available, suitable for different cheese types: Inflex where low absorbency is needed with fresh cheeses; pads for very fresh creamy cheeses producing lots of liquid; pads for maturing drier cheeses such as goats’ cheese where the microporous surface allows for excellent air flow, and we can also offer absorbent crepe.

Sirane is an innovative packaging design, development, manufacture and solutions company which specialises in areas including absorbency and ovenable/microwaveable products, compostable packaging, films, boards, absorbent pads, and much more.
