SIRANE makes lots of things. And I mean lots.... And so we have many standard products, but can also make many more things besides...
As seafood packaging, for example, we offer a range of absorbent mats, pads and liners for fish crates, and a range of cooking bags including steam-cooking bags and roasting bags. But most of these are products that began life with someone somewhere asking us whether we could make it, and we could. Some products we make because we know people want them, others we have developed because potential customers have knocked on the door and said 'could you make this?'
Our Smart-Release bags are a good example of this... a customer wanted a multi-compartment steam-cooking bag for the microwave so that the seafood and the sauce could be kept separate until midway through the cooking process. Did we make it? No. Could we make it, well, yes.... another example is our Dri-Fresh Ice-Mats, which are soaked in seawater and then frozen. As the mat slowly thaws, it provides a steady supply of fresh water for live seafood in transit, meaning it arrives in a better condition. It originated from a conversation with someone in the shellfish trade at a trade show, who asked whether we could make it and explained the need. And of course, we could...
Sirane has a high level of expertise in absorbency and material science. So we can can probably make many more things than we're currently making, that we don't even know there is an need for.
Absorbency is used in many ways within the seafood packaging world - there's still more uses yet to be determined. Every month we are surprised to find the weird and wonderful uses our products get put to. Who knew, for example, that tattoo artists often use meat pads on their clients. And so we're always open to suggestions and new ideas for products.
We also work with and offer products made from nylon. Nylon is an incredibly clean material. We know it is also used in the food service industry in a variety of ways, including large roasting bags for spices and breadcrumbs, lining vats and more. And it is a fabulous material for roasting bags for seafood, meat and poultry. But what else could it be used for?.... There's probably lots of potential uses, we just don't know them yet.
So if you're looking for a product, but don't see it listed among our products, don't be put off.... there's a good chance we can make what you're looking for.
