Introducing the Schur®Star Piping Bag for Foie Gras Mousse: Sophistication and simplicity in perfect unity
Differentiation through added value
When Spain’s prime producer of luxurious delicatessen looked for a way to differentiate their new product line through added value, their eyes fell on the Schur®Star Concept. The perfect combination - simplicity of concept together with a creative bag construction - easily convinced them to go for a Schur®Star solution.
Brilliantly simple: The bag is not only container, but also dosing and decoration tool
Foie gras is not an everyday product consumed in large quantities, but a delicatessen to enjoy in delicate portions. This makes the Schur®Star Piping Bag the perfect packaging solution, as the bag not only holds and promotes the product, it also works as dosing and decoration tool. After having cut off the tip of the bag, the consumer may dose exactly the desired quantity of foie gras and pipe rosettes or swirls like a professional chef. The bag is decorated with a clean and stylish design, enabling the product itself to lead the market and appeal to the gourmet consumer.
Spain's largest producer of foie gras products
Martiko, Spanish reference in the world of delicatessen, focuses its activity on the elaboration of duck products achieving the presence of its products on the tables of the world. A family business that combines tradition and technology. Its breeding system contributes to control the entire traceability of the process, from the egg to the final product. The desire to offer the best products has led them to develop ingenious recipes that reach all audiences, bringing them this noble foie gras product.
The Schur®Star Concept: Maximum flexibility, no complexity
With the Schur®Star Concept, Martiko can profit from a total solution with optimal flexibility – and a wide range of options in terms of bag constructions and product processing. The Schur®Star Concept consists of the Schur®Star Packaging Machine and premade Schur®Star Bags that are linked together on a string to ensure a smooth packing process. The foie gras is filled in a fully automatic packing process – and the length of the filling line makes it possible to employ double filling, resulting in increased production capacity, despite the delicate product. After filling, the bags are pasteurized and finally a thermal transfer printer adds sell-by date and product identification codes. A line extension with a catering size is in the pipeline, as are additional bag constructions.
Available with a rigid nose cone
The Schur®Star Piping Bag was developed for pastry and semi-liquid products like sauce, mayonnaise, jam, whipped cream, and icing – practically any product that requires convenient dosing. Laminate constructions with excellent barrier properties are available, offering optimal storage capabilities for the specific product. If required, a rigid nose cone, possibly with a reclosable cap, can be inserted into the bag before the product is filled; also features like suspension holes, a reclosable zipper and a nick for easy opening are available.
