Following its acquisition of Burgess Packaging in November last year, Danish packaging group Schur has anchored its Shur Star Concept in Australia and will roll out new products at Foodpro.

The Schur Star Concept consists of the Schur Star Packaging Machine and the high quality pre-made Schur Star Bags supplied to customers linked together on a unique string.

Designed for manual, semi- and fully automatic filling, the concept provides producers, packers, and growers within all industries with the option to change bag size and functionalities within five minutes.

The system can be easily integrated into existing operations or can be a full stand-alone solution.

Among the new products Schur will be showing on Stand D61 at Foodpro in Sydney in July, is the Schur Star Jar Bag, a unique flexible stand-up bag, shaped like a jar.


According to Schur. the premium printing techniques of Schur Star Systems give this bag a three-dimensional shelf appearance. The Schur Star Jar Bag can be produced to meet all possible functionalities needed, including all types of barrier capacities. With a Schur Star packaging machine you can even run different kinds of shaped bags on the same machine.

Also new is the Schur Star Box Bag, suitable for a variety of product categories. Its box-shaped bottom makes the bag stand completely stable on the shelf, irrespective of weight and contents.

The bag is printable on front, reverse, sides and bottom, making all surfaces a potential promotional platform, regardless of whether the product is displayed in upright or lying position on the supermarket shelf. Additional features like a window in the bag allows the consumer a glimpse of the contents; a zipper offers reclosability, and a tearstrip and laserscore facilitate opening.
