Sirane’s Sira-Flex Resolve is a new, unique film which has been developed to have the optimum balance between humidity control, O2 and CO2 permeability. Retail trials using Sirane’s Sira-Flex Resolve have reported four additional days’ shelf life with potatoes and equally significant results with other fruit and vegetables. The permeability is temperature dependant so that the perfect atmosphere is maintained inside the pack even if the storage temperature is variable.

Simon Balderson, Sirane’s managing director, said: “The results are remarkable. There is no condensation on the inside of the film and the product does not dry out. The film is suitable for all types of vegetables including salads as well as many types of fresh fruit.”

The film is a natural bio-polymer made from plants. It is sustainable and fully compostable. The permeability is controlled by the property of the film itself. The results could lead to far less food being thrown away by customers and retailers. For more information, contact Mark Lingard, marketing executive at or call 01952 230055.
