Innovia Films’ fast sealing, Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) film is being used by a Spanish confectionery manufacturer to individually wrap its range of lollipops and sweets.
Founded in 1850, Caramelos La Pájara is based in Hellín near Albacete and manufactures all kinds of confectionery, including their own brand and private label, sold throughout Spain and beyond. In these Horizontal Form Fill Seal (HFFS) applications, the individually wrapped products are hard candy flat lollipops and boiled sweets.
Caramelos La Pájara general manager and owner Juan Jesús Losada said: "Caramelos La Pájara is very pleased with the Propafilm™ Fast Flexible Films (FFF) range from Innovia Films.
"The films are fast-sealing, have good barrier properties and are ideally suited for wrapping small units, such as sweets and lollipops, at high speed.
"The outstanding performance of the films minimises product waste, reduces set-up times and significantly cuts down on the amount of line supervision and adjustments required."
Propafilm FFB and FFC form part of Innovia Films’ FFF range. They are coated on one side with water-based acrylic and on the other with a unique water-based low-temperature sealing coating. Propafilm FFC is a transparent glossy film that is suitable for individual flow-wrapped confectionery. Propafilm FFB is a white version of FFC.
Innovia Films’ Spain and Portugal sales and marketing manager Susana Perez-Canales said: "It is great to have helped our customer Caramelos La Pájara choose packaging films to meet their needs and ensure their confectionery products have shelf appeal.
"Propafilm FFC and FFB offer gloss and transparency, a wide sealing range and seal integrity, coupled with superb machinability."
