A NUMBER of innovative flower packaging solutions and other horticultural products including natural growing mats are available from Sirane’s horticultural division – and there’s a chance to meeting the team at Packaging Innovations 2018 later this month.
Karl Heggarty, horticultural sales manager, said: “Many of our products are perfect for flower packaging and for protecting fresh flowers during transportation. We’ve used our expertise in material science, shelf-life and absorbency to develop a range of products.
“We’ve spoken to people within the industry about the products on the market and the products they need, and the result is the range offered by Sirane Horticultural.
“We can offer a range of pouches for cut flowers, in a range of colours, different absorbencies and different sizes, so whatever your requirement, we are able to help. These can even be used with our compostable wraps as a complete packaging solution.
“Our newer products include protective rose-stem wraps – these not only protect the delicate stems of the roses, but also protect anyone handling the stems.”
Crepe flower wraps and protective rose-stem wraps have been added to the existing range of water-retaining flower pouches and compostable wraps/films for fresh flowers.
Other products in the range include compostable plant pots, and natural growing mats. Sow-And-Grow Resolve growing mats are designed as a replacement for peat, and can be used for growing cress, mustard and herbs, including those sold as live plants.
Karl Heggarty said: “The mats are a plant-based fibre which is 100% natural and compostable. The open structure of the mats encourages root penetration, water retention and growth. We have introduced them to the range following impressive trials results.”
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.
Packaging Innovations takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from February 28-March 1, 2018. Sirane’s stand can be found at E11 – right next to the Eco-Pack Theatre.
