Flow-Wrap Nylon Solution For Seafood Packaging
A revolutionary new nylon-based bag or film – perfect for cooking seafood in the oven or microwave and which can be heat-sealed on a flow-wrapper – will be one of the innovations on show at Sirane’s stand at the Seafood Global Expo in Brussels next week.

“Siralon is massive news for the industry and is truly revolutionary,” said Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director. “Quality packaging for oven roasting that was dual-ovenable and could be heat-sealed on a flow-wrapping machine just hasn’t been possible – up until now.

“Siralon has everything – it can be flow-wrapped, it can be vac-packed, it is strong, it offers a great shelf-life barrier, and the results when cooked are succulent, moist fish.”

Sirane has introduced two materials to the range – Siralon 10 and Siralon 21. Siralon 10 is perfect for microwave cooking and cooking at low temperatures, while Siralon 21 is a stronger dual-ovenable film with a temperature resistance of up to 210oC – perfect for packaging, for example, a whole salmon with a glaze in an oven-ready bag.
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, absorbent pads, and much more.

The company – which is based in Telford, Shropshire in the UK - has four divisions: food packaging; medical and healthcare; horticultural and industrial.

It has an additional manufacturing facility in Antalya, Turkey, as well as offices and warehousing in Cape Town, South Africa, and offices in Dubai. Expansion plans are also underway in the United States, where the company is experiencing rapid growth.

Other recent Sirane innovations including microwave cooking bags and oven/barbecue bags will be on show at the Seafood Expo Global in Brussels which runs from 6-8 May.

The Sira-Cook Supreme Bag for BBQs and ovens has been developed by Sirane, Europe’s leading packaging development-to-manufacturing company, in response to feedback from clients suggesting it was something they would really like to see added to the range.

Jeremy added: “Anyone involved in seafood and who is looking to add genuine value to their products should come and see us at our stand in Brussels and take a look.
“These bags will allow a retailer to sell seafood with a sauce inside a bag that the user will be able to cook directly on a barbecue or in the oven, depending on preference or the weather.

“The bag can simply be folded over by the user, or heat-sealed as a retail pack. This would allow over-the-counter sales of ready-to-barbecue packs which are leak proof.”

The bag is available in a number of sizes – including a large bag big enough to take a whole salmon - and in a standard and non-stick version. It comes with a clear top panel – so users can see what’s being cooked – and the bag can be heat-sealed.
It is also available in a branded retail pack as part of our Thinking-Cooking range.

The BBQ/oven bag is the latest in a line of seafood cooking bag solutions from Sirane.

Other recent products include the Si-bag – an oven or microwave bag which can be sealed over the counter, becoming odour proof and leak proof. The bag steam cooks seafood in its own juices in a matter of minutes, and sauces and glazes can be added.

The Si-bag is also available in retail packs as part of the Thinking-Cooking range.

Also available is the Sira-Cook Smart-Release – a dual-compartment bag for microwave cooking, allowing product and sauce to be kept separate. Seals open at fixed temperatures during cooking, allowing for a perfect infusion of seafood and sauce.

Sirane has also recently expanded its range of absorbents liners for transporting fish thanks to a new machine significantly speeding up and streamlining the production process.

Sirane’s Dri-Fresh Sea-Fresh range of absorbent liners quickly and effectively absorbs the melting ice and juices released during transportation. The liquid is absorbed and trapped inside the Sea-Fresh liner to prevent spillage and reduce odour.

The machine – designed and built by Sirane’s in-house engineering team – will allow for far greater flexibility in the range, with almost any size or absorbency now available.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Our new machine for Sea-Fresh liners will make us very competitive, and this new pricing, combined with our reputation for quality absorbent products, should generate a lot of interest at the Global Seafood Expo.

“Sea-Fresh liners are terrific for lining crates of fish, soaking up large amounts of water and fluid from the crates, meaning it arrives at the destination in a much better state.
“The cold crate packed with seafood will remain cold and dry, optimising the condition and appearance – and in many cases the value or saleability - of the fish.

“The machine has tremendous flexibility, and is very fast, which has helped us become very competitive. We can produce exactly what the customer wants at an attractive price. Not only that but we can offer extremely high levels of absorbency which are great for seafood.”

Amcor Put On Show Waste Reduction Credentials
At Interpack 2014, one of the world's largest packaging trade fairs, Amcor will demonstrate how packaging is a partner in reducing global food waste – from the farm to the fork. Amcor will participate this year as a member of the Save Food organization, a non-profit initiative focused on addressing the issue of global food waste.

According to a study authored by Save Food and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, about one third of all food produced for human consumption is thrown away or lost worldwide. That amounts to approximately 1.3 billion tonnes each year. The SAVE FOOD 2014 Congress at Interpack will bring together politicians, the food and packaging industry, business, research and civil society to help foster discussion on the causes and prevention of food waste.

“Amcor is honoured to be part of this important discussion, and to be a partner in the solution to global food waste,” said Gerald Rebitzer, Sustainability Leader for Amcor Flexibles. “Amcor’s advanced packaging technologies help keep food fresh, healthy and convenient for the people who buy it to feed themselves and their families. From the moment food is harvested, Amcor partners with food producers, brand owners and retailers to preserve everything invested in that product.”

The FAO study showed that in industrialized countries the majority of waste occurs early in the food supply chain and again at the consumption stage. In developing regions, food is mostly lost during the early and middle stages of the food supply chain; much less food is wasted at the consumer level.

Common causes of food waste at the retail and consumer level (up to 40% in industrialized countries) are products that reach their “best by date” before consumption and consumers preparing larger portions than what they eat. At Interpack, Amcor will display several ways packaging can help, with solutions that extend shelf life such as Amcor N-Gage, a proprietary range of high barrier, peelable lidding films for cured meats and fresh ready meals which seal directly onto APET trays. Amcor N-Gage provides excellent product protection, while being lighter than current films. As an additional sustainability benefit, it is leading the way to mono-material lids and trays and total pack recycling*.
*Where appropriate recycling streams exist

Advanced packaging can also help to lengthen the ripening process of certain foods. Amcor Matrix is a new range of premium, paraffin-free, paper-based packaging for pasteurised soft cheese. Thanks to its breathable polymer, Amcor Matrix ensures that soft cheese can ripen in the pack both naturally and in a controlled way, with in-pack ripening tailored to suit each specific cheese.

Helping consumers to avoid food waste during meal preparation, and responding to the trend of shrinking households in industrialized countries, is portion packaging. Examples appearing at Amcor’s Interpack stand include Amcor Perfect Portion single serving packs for sauces and soft cheese, and Amcor Stickpacks for liquid and powdered products, such as instant coffee. Additionally, recloseable solutions like Amcor E-Close help ensure food stays fresh longer after opening, improving the chance that nothing is wasted.

Reducing global food waste in the early and middle stages of the food supply chain are packaging solutions that prolong the life of fresh produce. According to FAO, almost half of all fruits and vegetables grown each year are wasted. Applying the delicate science of keeping fresh produce fresh is Amcor P-Plus®, the original and most extensive range of tailored permeability films designed to extend the life of fresh fruits and vegetables. Using advanced micro-perforation technology, Amcor P-Plus® films ensure the required permeability to match each product’s respiration rate. This slows the ageing and ripening processes, preserves freshness and nutritional quality, extends the season, extends storage, transport and shelf life and reduces waste. For example, following extensive trials, Amcor P-Plus® has been able to add three days of extra shelf life to ripe mangoes in retail packs.

Recyclying labelling Gaining Recognition
The On-Pack Recycling Label is now recognised by two in three shoppers. The scheme, which lets shoppers know which packaging can be recycled, celebrates its fifth birthday this spring.

Six in ten people find the label very helpful, easily identifiable on packaging and clear and easy to understand, according to recent market research. The most recognised label is the ‘widely recycled’ label, with 70% of those who recognise it automatically putting the relevant piece of packaging into their recycling collection.

Jane Bevis, Chair of OPRL Ltd, said: “Reaching such a high level of consumer recognition in such a short period of time is a real achievement and justifies the backing our founding members gave the label. Manufacturers and retailers across all sectors and of all sizes are using the OPRL label to engage their customers in really practical and important environmental action. Clearly customers are responding to that call to action.”

Launched in March 2009, the scheme has over 155 members, including major retailers and brands, and appears on over 75,000 product lines. The brands and retailers who have signed up to the label represent more than 90% of grocery sales in the UK and the label is also used in many other sectors, from fashion to pet food and electronics.

Recycling rates in England have risen from 38% in 2008/09 to 43.2% in 2012/13.

Membership of the scheme continues to grow and a digital version for on-line shoppers is being explored.
