Frequently Asked Questions 

What kind of confectionery packaging suits my item?

Food products have different packaging requirements. Check to see if your confectionery product falls on these categories to find out what kind of packaging is best.

Sugar confectionery:

  • Candied nuts or fruit
  • Pastillage
  • Chewing and bubble gum
  • Sugar-free sweet options
  • Lollies
  • Jelly products
  • Chewy candy

Candy is usually packed with metallised linings to keep moisture out. The lining prevents them from sticking to each other. Jar Shaped Pouches are also ideal, as it gives your product a more enticing appeal and still provides a good barrier to protect your product.

Clear plastic pouches work well for candy. The Pouch Shop offers eco-friendly, clear stand up pouches that are fully recyclable. Perfect for products that require a low light barrier and allow for better materials for recycling.

Chocolate confectionery:

  • Chocolate bars or drops
  • Chocolate-covered food items
  • Cremes
  • Truffles or bon bons

Pouches with plastic or metallised lining are best for chocolate packaging. It prevents air or moisture from penetrating the product. If you have a chocolate product to sell, choose wide packaging. Ideally, twice or three times the size of the net weight. This keeps the chocolate fresh, cool, and intact.

Baker’s confectionery:

  • Pastries
  • Cakes, bars, and other kinds of baked goods
  • Cookies
  • Cookie bars

These products need air tight quality to keep moisture at bay. Pouches with a lot of space and zipper closures will maintain freshness after your consumers have opened the packet. Stand up pouches with oval or square windows, kraft paper bags are the best pouches to use for baker’s confectionery. 

How does the metallised layer preserve the freshness of my products?

Stand Up Pouch packaging with metallised film layer

Confectionery packaging with metallised film provides a high barrier to both air and moisture as it uses a thin vacuum-coating of aluminium foil on polyester- almost like a tin can!insulates the products.
