February 5, 2024 (press release) –

SIRANE launched a fully recyclable cake-board to the market last year – and we then added custom printed cake-boards to the recyclable offering – whether it is for Easter or Valentine’s Day, Christmas or Hallowe’en, they offer real impact.

Traditional cake-boards are either foil-backed or lined with plastic to give the required grease/moisture barrier – but Sirane developed a cost-effective alternative. And those boards can be custom printed with anything…

Our new Earthboard Eco cake-boards are barrier-coated boards. The eco-friendly water-based coating gives the boards the required grease/moisture barrier – but crucially the board can easily be recycled in the paper/board recycling stream.

And now those recyclable cake-boards can be offered with custom printing – whether it’s corporate colours, fun designs (birthdays, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Hallowe’en etc) or something else you need.

Ross Griffin, director of board products, said: “Recent stats show that in the UK alone we spend £368m a year on cakes. Many of these will use cake-boards, and the vast majority – if not all – will currently end up in landfill or incinerated.

“We can supply a recyclable alternative, which does the same job, at virtually the same cost – in fact in some cases, we can actually offer a cost saving. There really is no need for companies to continue to use the non-recyclable boards.

“This is a sustainable, plastic-free, recyclable packaging solution which functions in exactly the same way and offers a range of additional branding options.

“Now we’re able to offer printed boards, offering customers a chance to get creative and put something on the shelf that has real visual impact.”

The new Earthboard Eco cake-boards are available in pearlescent coatings, including silver, gold and black, as standard. We can also supply cake-boards in any Pantone colour, subject to minimum order quantities being met.

Ross added: “Whether it’s corporate colours for a retailer, or branding based on Christmas or Easter, we can offer a huge range of options to anyone selling cakes – the only real limitation with printed cake-boards is your imagination.”

Standard sizes are 6in, 7in, 8in, 9in, 10in, 11in and 12in, circular and square. However, we can supply any size/shape as required. We can also supply patisserie boards. Our Earthboard Eco cake-boards are 1550 micron (approx. 1.5mm) and we can also offer a double thickness board, which is 3100 micron (approx. 3mm).

Recyclable cake-boards are also available to buy from our Field & Fare website.

And we also  introduced recyclable cake drums to the market during 2023.

Sirane can also supply custom shaped boards, including irregular shapes – Valentine’s Day, for example, sees red heart-shaped boards become popular.
