Application Challenges 

Chocolate is manufactured in many shapes and sizes. The challenge is in selecting the right packaging film for the application.

  • A film that provides a tight twist on individual chocolates without causing static during wrapping is essential for high speed machines
  • A glossy transparent film for box overwrap that is able to protect its contents while enhancing consumer appeal
  • A flexible film that can be used as a monoweb for bags or laminated to other materials for strength
  • A compostable metallised film providing the ultimate barrier and premium feel

NatureFlex™ films are suitable for easy to open bags, pouches, individually wrapped chocolates or to protectively overwrap chocolate bars.
