Stand out on the shelf with hermetic die-fold wrapping

hermetic die-fold

As the saying goes, we always want what we can’t have. For chocolate manufacturers, that sentiment is echoed in the desire for die-fold packaging to be available in a hermetically sealed single-wrap style. Why? Because it “wraps” three key benefits in one: extended shelf life, premium shelf appeal and saving opportunities for material and energy on the production line.

 

For decades, die-fold packaging has been a market mainstay due to its ability to lend elegance to a product’s overall appearance and create shelf differentiation. With all of its folds and tucks hidden on the underside of the chocolate tablet, die-fold packaging gives consumers the sense of unwrapping a gift, making packaging an integral part of the overall brand experience.

However, aside from box folding, achieving an airtight seal with a single-layer format has long been a challenge for chocolate manufacturers. Traditional die-fold tablets and bars require the addition of a second layer like aluminum to be airtight, increasing cost for manufacturers and consumers alike. The good news is that the wait is over. Incorporating the hermetic sealing process offers a high level of protection and only requires a single layer of oriented polypropylene (OPP). The result is a quality and hermetically sealed wrap that safeguards products from external influences such as dust, aromas or insect penetration.

Another advantage of hermetic sealing is its ability to meet the needs of different product sizes, styles or promotions. Now manufacturers can choose between several refined wrapping styles including bunch wrap, box folding or double-twist (also hermetically).

 

Selecting and acquiring packaging equipment best suited for specific production line needs can seem like a daunting task. Working with a trusted supplier who understands the chocolate market as well as the producer’s unique needs can make this task a lot easier.
