NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT: Food packaging ideas number 8 – board products

Board products from Sirane

BOARDS are an integral part of many packaging solutions – whether for their rigidity, to improve appearance, or because they fulfil another purpose such as absorbency.

We recently acquired a board converter based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, which means we have been able to significantly expand our portfolio to include cake boards, patisserie boards, cake collars, salmon boards, U-cards and J-cards, pizza boards and more.

Many products can be supplied with an eco-friendly coating, meaning they are recyclable.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Our Stroud site has a high level of expertise in board conversion, and has been supplying the trade for many years. No matter what shape, size or colour, printed or plain, Sirane is now able to supply your requirements.

“As a company we’ve been working on sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions for a number of years how, and we’re now able to combine some of our technologies, meaning we have more and more options for people looking for greener alternatives.

“And we have some great board-based products currently under development or set for launch, including our new plastic-free sandwich skillets – Earthwedge.

“We can also combine Stroud’s capabilities in board production with technologies such as our microwave susceptor to make board products which will crisp food in the microwave.”

Sirane is an innovative food packaging development-to-manufacture company, with expertise in absorbency and material science. Specialisms include bags and pouches, absorbent products, shelf-life extension and dual-ovenable products.
