INTERNATIONAL packaging design, development and manufacturing company Sirane has expanded its presence with the opening of a new operation in South Africa.
Sirane Southern Africa will operate out of Cape Town, and is being headed up by Stacey Loader, who has vast experience in the packaging industry.
Stacey said: “We are extremely excited at the possibilities open to us not just within South Africa, but throughout the emerging African markets as well. We look forward to bringing Sirane’s unique and innovative packaging to help invigorate our tired industry.
“We believe that Sirane’s products will help revolutionise how we package our fresh produce in this country. From extensive shelf life benefits, to improving the taste and presentation of our food products, the initial response to Sirane’s products has been incredibly encouraging, and we are immensely excited with the future prospects of the Sirane Southern Africa and our business journey.”
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Our international trade is rapidly expanding, and there is tremendous scope for increasing business in Southern Africa.
“After months of work, we are delighted to finally be open for business in Southern Africa and look forward to seeing Stacey establishing Sirane there.”
Sirane is an innovative packaging design, development, manufacture and solutions company which specialises in areas including absorbency and ovenable/microwaveable products, compostable packaging, films, boards, pads, and much more.
Sirane Southern Africa will help make it far easier for customers to order Sirane products, as the company will have dealt with all the region’s import regulations.
Key international markets for Sirane include packaging for fruit and vegetables, meat and seafood. Other growing markets include over-the-counter cooking bags.
The company also has medical and healthcare, horticultural and industrial divisions.
Sirane is also on the verge of opening a similar operation in the Middle East – based in Dubai – and a full warehousing and manufacturing facility in Antalya, Turkey.
