Sweets & Confectionery Packaging
Flexible packaging solutions for the confectionery market
Confectionery really is a timeless treat. No matter how old you are, you are sure to have a memory of heading to the local shop with your pocket money in hand to buy your favourite, often chocolatey treat and savouring every bite on the walk home.
There was a time when you would enter the shop armed with your shiny 10p piece and after careful deliberation, would leave with a selection of your favourite sweets in a white paper bag.
Over the decades things have changed, not only with the challenge you may encounter to purchase anything for 10p but with the vast array of confectionery available and how it is presented to us. But memories are still being made, and for today’s younger generation who can’t remember penny sweets and jars of boiled sweets on shelves, they will still remember standing in front of an array of sugary treats in colourful, alluring wrappers and picking out the sweet they have been looking forward to all day. Although over the years packaging has changed, confectionery still is and always will be a timeless treat that continues to create memories.
