SPIRIANT launches sustainable, ovenable packaging

SPIRIANT has launched PureCure, a sustainable, ovenable food packaging solution designed to withstand high temperatures and remain stable against moisture, grease and oil leakage.

The PureCure casserole is made from 100% plant-based materials instead of petroleum-based plastic. Unlike most other similar products, it does not contain a thin plastic layer or coating. This means that PureCure is the first casserole that is fully compostable.

The material is toxin-free and metal-free, heat-resistant (up to 220˚C/430˚F), and cool to touch when taken out of the oven. The product’s shape and branding can be customised and SPIRIANT promises a relatively low complexity of switch from C-PET or aluminium for caterers.

It claims the inspiration for the product was based on an overall industry change towards sustainability, as well as the upcoming Directive (EU) 2019/904, which leads to many restrictions regarding plastic onboard. With the introduction of the EU Single-Use Plastics Directive, airlines are under pressure to find environmentally-friendly product alternatives for plastic cutlery, stirrers, and straws. Heatable solutions like casseroles are meant to be reduced by the EU Regulation.
