SIRA-BOARD: Introducing our range no. 2 – U-cards/J-cards

U-cards and J-cards from Sirane including printed and plain

SIRANE can offer a range of U-cards and J-cards including eco-friendly – and can also incorporate microwave susceptor, making the packaging functional.

For anyone looking for something eco-friendly, we can supply compostable and recyclable U-cards and J-cards – an aqueous coating gives the necessary grease resistance. They can be supplied either plain or printed as required.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “U-cards and J-cards are commonly used for products such as pasties and pies, snacks etc, to help give the pack some structure.

“We can supply any size or shape, printed or plain. It’s also possible to incorporate susceptor, which means the packaging can be used to crisp food in a microwave. This can be particularly good for pasties, burritos, wraps etc.

Earlier this year Sirane completed the acquisition of Olympic – a UK-based manufacturer of board products supplying the bakery, fish and cake industries among others which is based just outside Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Other products include cake/patisserie boards, salmon boards and pizza boards.

Now known as Sirane Stroud, the site has specialised board processing equipment and are highly skilled in board processing operations. They supply products throughout the UK through both via distributors and direct sales.

We’d be interested to hear from any potential distributors outside of the UK.
