Steam cooking bags - options include multi-compartment

HEALTHY, simple, practical, fast & tasty – Sirane’s steam cooking bags allow you to send your customer home with packaging they can put straight in the oven or microwave.

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. Heat-sealable and self-seal versions are available.

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.

And other options include full branding/custom print, stand-up bags for improved retail display (especially grab and go), multi-compartment and specially placed vents.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, Sirane sales director, said: “Simple healthy steam cooking and straight-to oven or microwave food doesn’t have to sacrifice on flavours like many people think.

“Retailers are often looking for ways to improve sales, particularly of fresh food, better ways to present products, and for packaging solutions that their customers will appreciate– well our Sira-Cook steam-cooking bag range offers all that and more

“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 how long to cook it for.

“You can’t 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.”

“Using a steam-cooking bag retains all the flavours, it allows people to cook quickly and easily with fresh ingredients. Healthy eating and fast food can be combined.”

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.

“Sell your fish, poultry or vegetables in a bag or with some bags, the choice is yours,” added Mr Haydn-Davies. “Either way, you’re making it easier for your customers.”

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.

Simon Balderson, Sirane’s MD, said: “Steam cooking bags are not only perfect for home users wanting to create a simple yet tasty meal, but also for retailers wanting to send customers home with a great tasting meal to put straight into the oven or microwave.”


Bags of Ideas - Sirane's Sira-Cook range of oven, microwave and BBQ cooking bags

SIRANE offers a varied range of cooking bag options – all of which can be found in our Bags of Ideas brochure, a quick visual guide to what your options are.

From oven to microwave, BBQ to sous-vide and incorporating custom branded and fully printed bags – there’s something for everyone – and last year we acquired the ovenable bags and films business of Terinex, which has further increased that range.

Bags of Ideas brings everything together under one banner, in one simple to use catalogue, and helps guide the customer through the process of choosing what works for them.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Bags of ideas, bags of innovation and bags of possibilities. Sirane’s range of cooking bags has it all. Whether you want to steam cook in the oven or microwave, roast in the oven, or have a bag to throw on the BBQ, we can help.

“We can help guide you through the many options we have to help you decide what cooking bag will work best for you. Whether it be a non-stick BBQ bag or a printed steam-cooking bag, or a bag with a special vent, you decide.

“Our recent acquisition of part of the Terinex business means we can offer polyester ovenable bags and films, foil-edged film, and much, much more.

“The choices can sometimes seem daunting, but we’re here to help you make the right decision, as the right cooking bag can have a hugely positive impact on sales…”

Cooking bags offered by Sirane include our Sira-Cook Supreme bags for oven or BBQ, which are available in a range of sizes, with options including a non-stick layer.

As well as BBQ/oven bags, Sirane manufactures a wide range of other cooking bags including steam-cooking bags for oven/microwave (including a new stand-up version.

Steam-cooking bags can be supplied with custom printing, as self-seal or heat-seal, and even with a special vent – or in a new version, a stand-up pouch, which is becoming very popular, as it allows for enhanced retail presentation in a grab and go environment.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Steam-cooking bags are gaining popularity the world over, as they are a great way of selling food which is easy to cook and ultimately very tasty. Bags of Ideas will take the customer through the main options available.

“We can even advise on how to make the most of your cooking bag and suggest flavoured butters and put you in contact with the supplier, helping you create fresh ready meals.”

As well as polyester ovenable bags and films, Sirane can also offer nylon – which is suitable for higher temperatures, as it can be cooked at up to 220 degrees Celsius.

Many of our bags can be supplied as individually wrapped bags, for use with meal-kits etc.
