SIRANE is a finalist at Packaging Innovation’s EcoPack Challenge – and will be presenting our entry to the judges live on stage on Thursday.
Our Earthpouch Duo is a plastic-free recyclable stand-up pouch with a window – which is something customers have been asking for.
Peter Ralten, chief commercial officer, will present Sirane’s entry. He said: “The Earthpouch is a great packaging solution, it’s paper-based which means it can be recycled in the paper recycling stream.
“But some customers want visibility of their product, and out of paper this proved a challenge – but we have now achieved this.
“Head to the EcoPack Challenge at noon on Thursday if your want to know more – or visit our stand at the show, which is G50.”
The show – rearranged from its traditional February date – is always a good show for Sirane, and one where we can focus on new developments.
And in many cases that means our sustainable packaging solutions.
Karl Heggarty, head of global sales, said: “While Sirane offers a huge range of packaging solutions, the focus at Packaging Innovations for a few years has been on sustainable packaging, and this year will be the same.
“Earth Packaging is a significant area for us, and an area where we’ve invested time and resource in developing sustainable alternatives.
“Whether you’re looking for plastic-free packaging, recyclable packaging or compostable packaging, Sirane invariably has the solution.”
Everything in our Earth Packaging range is either compostable or recyclable and is either paper-based, board-based or bio-material-based.
Our range includes our plastic-free recyclable barrier pouches – Earthpouch, and our plastic-free recyclable barrier film for flow-wrap – Earthfilm.
Within the last year we’ve added plastic-free quad-packs to the range, and have also added an ovenable version – Earthpouch Supreme.
And the Earthpouch Duo is the latest addition to that list. We also began offering the pouch as a quad-pack, again due to popular demand.
However, plastic-free won’t work for everyone – and we can also offer a range of recyclable plastics, which are our RePEat range. These materials can all be recycled as part of the PE recycling stream.
It’s also worth mentioning our polyester bags and films – which can now be supplied in a 30% post-consumer recycled material option.
From our Earthboard range we offer paper-recyclable salmon boards, which can be used in conjunction with our recyclable RePEat vacuum pouches.
We also offer a range of other recyclable coated boards including cake-boards and cake-collars, patisserie boards and ovenable boards.
We have our twisted-handle paper-grab bags – a sustainable shopping bag – as well as our RePeat recyclable and reusable insulated bags.
Bio-materials on offer include compostable cling-film and shrink-film, and we can also offer compostable pallet wrap for both manual and machine wrap.
And we can even offer eco-friendly printing– our flexible packaging site uses environmentally-friendly water-based inks, coatings and adhesives.
We’re also hoping to have a new product to show in Birmingham – watch this space, especially if recyclable packaging is what you’re after…
Sirane will be at Packaging Innovations, Birmingham, from May 25-26 – find us on stand 1016. We’re also exhibiting at Plastic Waste-Free World in Atlanta from June 8-9, as well as the World Travel Catering Expo in Hamburg.
