Select Bag Sealers white paper outlines the route to sustainable packaging for bakeries
The UK’s largest bag seal manufacturer and supplier Select Bag Sealers has introduced a recyclable bag seal, with a white paper titled ‘It’s all about the seal: Fresher, clearer, easier, safer…and now greener’.
The paper examines the themes and contributory factors in the drive for sustainable packaging, the various bag sealing methods available and the company’s recyclable bag seal, which will enable bakeries to create a bread bag that is 100% recyclable.
Richard Hobson, Select Bag Sealers’ sales director, commented: “Bakery brands are under more pressure than ever to make their packaging sustainable. We have invested heavily in examining the role we can play, and how we can help our bakery customers create recyclable packaging that includes the coded seal.
“The road to sustainable packaging is not a straightforward one. It’s far more complex than common perceptions would have you believe, and there is much ambiguity, misunderstanding and misinformation surrounding it. That’s why we wanted to set out the wider context for our latest product innovation – the recyclable bag seal – examining the alternatives and demonstrating how we can provide bakeries with a sustainable solution.”

“Thank you to everybody involved in the installation of the new Flexi-Sealer on our new bagging line. We had a new Flexi-Sealer installed in 2008 and since then the machine has just kept running. Our own engineers never go near the machine, there is no need to. The support from Select’s engineer on the installation day was excellent, his work and the training he gave to both operators and our own engineers was a credit to him and the management at Select Bag Sealers. I would recommend the SBS Flexi-Sealer to anyone looking for a bag sealing machine.”
