SIRA-COOK: Steam cooking bags with custom print

Steam cooking bags can be supplied fully printed

SIRANE’s steam-cooking bags for the oven or microwave are a great retail packaging solution and can be custom printed – either with your brand, cooking instructions or both…

Sirane’s steam-cooking bags are cook-in bags which allows all the flavours to be sealed in for simple, tasty cooking – perfect for healthy cooking and portion control, without sacrificing flavour. Both heat-sealable and self-seal versions are available.

This makes it a great solution for sales in store – whether packed and heat-sealed and shipped into store or packed in front of the customer and sealed with the self-seal.

The bags are designed to be used safely in a conventional oven up to 200 degrees Celsius, in a microwave – and even in a freezer for subsequent reheating and eating.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Retailers are often looking for ways to improve sales, particularly of fresh food, better ways to present products, and for packaging solutions that customers appreciate– our Sira-Cook steam-cooking bag range offers all that.

“The bags are fantastic for fresh fish or meat counters in supermarkets, allowing a whole meal to be sealed in a bag and handed to the customer – it just needs cooking.

“Consumers often don’t know what to do with fish, they don’t know how to cook it. Our bags can help increase seafood sales significantly, as you can hand over a piece of fish, in a bag, with a nice sauce – all you need to do is advise cooking times.

“You can print your brand on the bag, and you can print the cooking instructions on the bag. It really can be that simple – or we can supply one with generic instructions.

“People have lots of reasons for wanting to cook steamed food in this way. For some it is the convenience, for some it is for health reasons, for some it could be as simple as portion control and knowing exactly what they’re eating. But for all of them, it can still be tasty.

“And often, when people do cook this way, they find it is a way of cooking stunning food easily. A real advantage of our steam cooking bags is the simplicity of the products.”

All the natural flavours of the meat, fish or vegetables are sealed in the bag during cooking, creating a sensational and healthy meal. Flavoured butters and glazes can be added.

Our steam cooking bags can be used as a retail counter bag – but are also available in small individually-wrapped sachets, for use as parts of meal kits, ready meals etc.

Other options include stand-up bags – offering enhanced retail display – and multi-compartment. We can also offer bags in a range of different colours.

Our steam cooking bags have been developed by Sirane’s engineers and scientists. They are made from very high temperature resistant film, which combines practicality with simplicity. The meal is sealed in using a fold-over flap and the bag becomes odour and leak-proof.
