About Chocolate Packaging

Packaging is an integral part of the food industry due to its role in maintaining the hygiene and quality of the food products during transportation and storage. Chocolate packaging makes use of aluminum foil, tin, paper, and cardboard for packaging. The packaging designs have a significant influence on the purchase decisions of customers hence, vendors are expected to innovate packaging material as well as designs in the forecast period.

The packaging of chocolate is a complex process that demands attention and care due to several layers of packaging. For example, a chocolate bar is first wrapped with an aluminum foil, followed by a plastic package. For other chocolates, it is further placed on a plastic tray and finally in a cardboard box. Chocolate packaging is divided into flexible packaging and rigid packaging where plastic is the dominant material used because of its benefits as well as cost benefits. .
