The packaging of any product is its first point of contact with potential buyers.

As a marketing tool, packaging speaks volumes about the quality of the product and the brand selling it. For companies with brands in the confectionery and snacking sector, packaging types and materials play a crucial role in the new product development (NPD) or product stewardship process.

Join us as we explore the key role that sustainable chocolate packaging plays in creating a positive impression, communicating quality and paving the way for a greener future.

3 Eco-friendly recyclable chocolate boxes

5 The right protective packaging for chocolates

To ensure that your chocolate stays fresh and tasty, it is important to choose the right packaging. To keep your chocolates in the best condition, the chocolate packaging must meet several requirements: optimal oxygen barrier, correct moisture protection, accurate heat sealing at low temperatures and good air tightness. Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of the different paper boxes for food chocolate packaging can help you make an informed decision and keep your chocolates in the best condition.

1. Optimal oxygen barrier

Excessive contact with oxygen can cause chocolate to oxidise, resulting in an unpleasant taste. Milk chocolate and white chocolate are more prone to oxidation due to their high dairy and low cocoa content.

2. Proper resistance to humidity

In a humid environment, the sugar in chocolate dissolves, causing white particles to form on the surface of the chocolate. This is known as "chocolate bloom". Proper packaging with a high moisture barrier helps to prevent this.

3. Accurate heat sealing at low temperature

Chocolate melts easily at high temperatures. High temperature heat sealing can cause chocolate close to the seal to melt, affecting the cleanliness of the pack.

4.Good airtightness

Good airtightness is a basic requirement for all food packaging.Poorly sealed packaging allows air and moisture to enter, which can affect the quality and taste of the chocolate in the long term.It also prevents the entry of unwanted guests, such as cocoa moths, which do not distinguish between cocoa and chocolate.
