Introducing the Schur®Star Piping Bag for Foie Gras Mousse: Sophistication and simplicity in perfect unity
The Schur®Star Piping Bag is the perfect packaging solution, as the bag not only holds and promotes the product, it also works as dosing and decoration tool.
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. The Schur®Star Piping Bag was developed for pastry and semi-liquid products like sauce, mayonnaise, jam, whipped cream, and icing. 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.
Simplicity in the packing process with the Schur®Star Concept
By employing the Schur®Star Concept, the packaging process of the large range of cereals, pulses, seeds, and dried mushrooms has been made more efficient.
“On the occasion of our 200th anniversary we decided to streamline our production process and to upgrade our packaging – and perfect unity was created when we were introduced to the Schur®Star Concept”, says Thomas Morin, Industrial Director at Sabarot Wassner. “Not only did we simplify the packing process by introducing pre-made bags, we also increased production capacity, we reduced manning and last, but not least: We have updated and sophisticated the packaging solution for two of our brands – with more to come.”

The film offers excellent printability and mechanical strength in the packing process.
