Confectionery foil is predominately used from wrapping single chocolates and small bars, it gives both a barrier but also a prestigious look and feel to the product. In house we can apply from a single coating up to 7 colours flexographic or gravure. Depending on your end use we would recommend an unsupported micron range of between 8micron and 50micron. Various applications are available, for example, slip coatings, heat seal and silicon finishes.
