Global cooking bag interest: new machines increase Sirane’s capacity

INVESTMENT in two new machines and additional manufacturing capacity will allow Sirane to keep pace with the huge interest globally in our cooking bag solutions.

Two new ‘bag-making’ machines have been installed, significantly increasing capacity on some of our popular products including steam cooking bags and roasting bags.

Simon Balderson, Sirane managing director, said: “The last 12 months have seen a significant growth in the cooking bag market, and we wanted to stay ahead of the game.

“More and more companies are seeing the benefit of quality steam cooking bags as an over-the-counter solution, nylon bags for roasting and more. The versatility of our packaging solutions, with self-seal or heat-seal options able to be used by the end user in the oven or microwave, makes them a very attractive way of adding value to sales.

“But it is important to Sirane that we are always able to make what our customers’ want, when they want it, and on time – so investment in additional capacity was crucial.

“We’re now in a terrific position to grow this market, as the machinery is in place – and we’re looking forward to continuing to sell our cooking bags around the world.

“We’re already about to announce an agreement with a large company in the US which will see a huge amount of cooking bags crossing the Atlantic, so it is truly exciting times.

“This is a significant investment as part of ongoing investment in the company.”

An additional machine has been installed in Sirane Turkey’s manufacturing facility in Antalya.

Sirane Turkey is based in a purpose-built site in the Antalya Organised Zone at Döşemealtı. Sirane Turkey’s operation will eventually replicate that of the UK, offering not only manufacturing but a high level of design and innovation.

Sirane Turkey’s managing director is Taşkın Öztaş. He said: “The installation of the new machine here in Turkey will be the first of many, allowing Sirane Turkey to supply packaging solutions into the Turkish markets as well as further afield.

“The machine will allow us to manufacture and supply a wide range of cooking bags into the markets in Turkey and the Middle East, including a range of vacuum bags.”
