Printed aluminium foil

For many types of confectionery aluminium foil’s barrier and decorative properties can be vital components. Many chocolate products are stored for long periods but, when exposed to moisture and light, it deteriorates and the surface can quickly lose its attractive gloss. Aluminium foil or laminate offers the best protection, providing a total barrier to light, moisture, and any penetration of aroma and flavour.
Additionally it can be folded tightly to the surface of chocolate. For all types of confectionery, aluminium foil’s glittering metallic surface also brings colour and impact, adding to the fun and enjoyment of the product.
Even with individual film or waxed paper wrapping, boiled sugar sweets can absorb moisture and lose flavour unless they are enclosed in a sealed aluminium foil laminate barrier. Twist-wrapped chocolates and sweets also benefit from the extra brightness and protection of an inner layer of aluminium foil. Laminated wrappers and ‘tubes’ are widely used to protect many brands of fruit flavoured and medicated lozenges as well as chewing gum products.
For confectionery sold in warm climates, there are special ‘insect proof’ foil specifications. This protection is very effective for products containing nuts or raisins.
