Next stop Ludlow Food Festival for Thinking-Cooking team

Thinking-Cooking will have a stand just down the road from our Shropshire home when we visit the Ludlow Food Festival on Sunday, September 15th.

Top quality steam cooking bags for the oven or microwave, fresh produce bags offering impressive shelf-life extension and slow-cooker liners will be among the range on sale.

The Thinking-Cooking range has been developed by Telford-based food packaging development company Sirane Ltd to allow home users to buy quality innovative cooking products direct, and to allow smaller retailers to easily add value to their sales.

The range features the popular Si-bag Meal-Maker – which has been sold direct to the public for a while – alongside the Baby & Toddler Meal-Pouch, Fat-Trap, Roasting Bags, Potato-Bakers, Shelf-Life Bags, Deli-Bags, and Slow-Cooker Liners.

“The Ludlow Spring Festival was our first foray into the food festival world, and we found the public were very receptive to our products,” said Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director.

“We’re returning for the September Food Festival and are very much looking forward to it.”

All Thinking-Cooking items either reduce cooking times, cleaning times, or the amount of food thrown out, as well as allowing for healthier food in a simple, convenient way.

“Thinking-Cooking has brought to the kitchen table a number of items which will truly make people’s life easier,” said Jeremy. “People will wonder how they ever managed without.”

“This range of products is about convenience, simplicity, taste and cutting waste. Whether it is cutting energy bills because your oven is on for an hour less, or cutting down on the washing up, Thinking-Cooking has thought about what will help.

“People lead busy lives, but still want good food. Money is tight in many families, so they want food to last. Thinking-Cooking has looked at problems and found solutions.

“They are also healthy solutions, cooking bags for example help significantly with portion control, Fat-Traps will reduce the amount of fat with items such as sausages.

“Steam cooking can also be a requirement for medical reasons, but being able to find a cooking bag that will still leave the user with a tasty meal has not always been easy.

“Steam cooking can be just as tasty – if not tastier – than other methods of cooking. With fresh fish, for example, people often don’t know what to do with it. But popping it in a steam cooking bag with a simple sauce, for example, can be the best way to cook it.

“We’ll also soon be adding a new product to the range – a barbecue bag which allows meat, poultry, seafood or vegetables to be sold with a marinade or sauce in a bag that the customer can throw straight on the barbecue – or in the oven if the weather turns.”

Shelf-life bags proved very popular at the Spring Festival, with customers attracted by the potential to make their fruit and vegetables last much longer than before.

“The bags are 100% compostable, 100% natural and 100% effective,” said Jeremy. “Their natural properties will enhance the shelf-life of fruit, vegetables and even herbs.

“Tomatoes can last as much as seven days longer, the same with mushrooms. Green beans have been known to last weeks in these bags. They truly are a remarkable product.”

Team gearing up for food fair in Ludlow

We're looking forward to welcoming people to the Thinking-Cooking stand at the Ludlow Spring Festival on Sunday, May 12th.

Quality steam cooking bags suitable for the oven or microwave, fresh produce bags offering significant shelf-life extension, roasting bags and slow-cooker liners will be among the range on sale at the show which takes place in the shadow of the food town's famous castle.

The Thinking-Cooking range has been developed to allow home users to buy innovative cooking products direct, and to allow retailers to add value to their sales.

The range - all of which will be offered for sale at the food fair - features the popular Si-bag Meal-Maker (which has been sold direct to the public for a while) alongside the Baby & Toddler Meal-Pouch, Fat-Trap, Roasting Bags, Potato-Bakers, Shelf-Life Bags, Deli-Bags, and Slow-Cooker Liners.

“Ludlow is very much a food town,” said Ruth Mason, sales executive for Thinking-Cooking. “And the people who go to the food fairs love their food. Well so do we... all our products are aimed at making people's experience in the kitchen a more positive one.

"Steam cooking fish, for example, is not only healthy but is also one of the tastiest ways of cooking fish. A roasting bag will give the user a joint of meat or bird packed with flavours for  next-to-no effort. Pop those speciality sausages on a fat-trap, and they'll be healthier as the fat will be soaked away."

All Thinking-Cooking items either reduce cooking times, cleaning times, or the amount of food thrown out, as well as allowing for healthier food in a simple, convenient way.

“Thinking-Cooking has brought to the kitchen table a number of items which will truly make people’s life easier,” said Ruth. “People will wonder how they ever did without.

“We’ll also soon be adding a new product to the range - a barbecue bag which allows meat, poultry, seafood or vegetables to be sold with a marinade or sauce in a bag that the customer can throw straight on the barbecue – or in the oven if the weather turns.”

The range is also about keeping that fine food fresh - shelf-life bags for fresh produce and deli-bags for other products will both help keep quality produce in good condition.

Thinking-Cooking heading for the Ludlow Spring Festival

“This is a first foray for us into the world of food festivals,” said Ruth Mason, sales executive for Thinking-Cooking. “We’re looking forward to what hopefully should be a busy day.

“It will be great to meet customers face-to-face and explain our products.”

All Thinking-Cooking items either reduce cooking times, cleaning times, or the amount of food thrown out, as well as allowing for healthier food in a simple, convenient way.

“Thinking-Cooking has brought to the kitchen table a number of items which will truly make people’s life easier,” said Ruth. “People will wonder how they ever did without.”

“This range of products is about convenience, simplicity, taste and cutting waste. Whether it is cutting energy bills because your oven is on for an hour less, or cutting down on the washing up, Thinking-Cooking has thought about what will help.

The Si-bag Meal-Maker is an ovenable or microwaveable cooking bag, which seals in all the juices and flavours and allows healthy eating and fast food to be combined. The Baby & Toddler Meal Pouch will similarly allow healthy food to be cooked fast.

Thinking-Cooking Roasting Bags are available for both turkeys and chickens, and will crisp up the bird perfectly, stop it from drying out, and significantly reduce the cooking time.

Fat-Traps can be used on oven-grills to soak up the fat – healthier food and less cleaning – while Slow-Cooker Liners will also cut down on the hated washing-up.

Fresh: Shelf-Life Bags and Fresh: Deli-Bags will offer significant shelf-life extension, with the Shelf-Life Bags – available in two sizes - suitable for all fresh produce.

Ruth added: “Trials of the Shelf-Life Bags in a commercial environment have shown some astonishing results – shelf-life extension of five days or more. So we thought why not sell the bags directly to home-users, so they can put their own fruit or veg in.”

The bags can be used not only for fresh produce but also for prepared vegetables.

Shelf-life extension of more than eight additional days has been achieved with tomatoes, an additional week with cucumbers, and more than two additional weeks with green beans.

Meet us at the NEC's Farm Shop & Deli Show

Thinking-Cooking – the new retail range from innovative food packaging company Sirane – will be exhibiting at the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC in April.

The Thinking-Cooking range has been developed to allow home users to buy innovative cooking products direct, and to allow retailers to add value to their sales.

The range features the popular Si-bag Meal-Maker – which has been sold direct to the public for a while – alongside the Baby & Toddler Meal-Pouch, Fat-Trap, Roasting Bags, Potato-Bakers, Shelf-Life Bags, Deli-Bags, and Slow-Cooker Liners.

“Our Thinking-Cooking range will fit perfectly with what many farm shops and delicatessens are currently offering,” said Ruth Mason, sales executive for Thinking-Cooking. “The range could be a great item to sit next to the counter – but could also be used by retailers to send customers home with food in packaging that is ready to cook.

“A farm shop selling turkeys, for example, could sell Thinking-Cooking Roasting Bags alongside the turkeys – or add value to sales by selling the turkeys in a ready-to-cook bag.

“The same could apply to the Si-bag Meal-Maker – it could be a stand-alone product or used to sell meals, side dishes and desserts in a format that is ready to oven or microwave.”

All items will either reduce cooking times, cleaning times, or the amount of food wasted and thrown out, as well as allowing for healthier food in a simple, convenient way.

“Thinking-Cooking has brought to the kitchen table a number of items which will truly make people’s life easier,” said Ruth. “People will wonder how they ever did without.”
