Innovia Films has begun working with a German chocolate manufacturer using its Propafilm RCU as part of the packaging for a new collection of ‘Oh là là’ chocolates.

Founded in 1804, Halloren Schokoladenfabrik AG is the oldest chocolate factory in Germany and offers an extensive range of chocolates and sweets.

Propafilm RCU is an appropriate packaging complement for Halloren’s new ‘Oh là là’ chocolates. The BOPP film provides protection from mineral oil migration and in addition offers barrier to water vapour, flavours and aromas – some important considerations in confectionery packaging.

The three flavours of the ‘Oh là là’ chocolate assortment were launched at the International Sweets Exhibition in Cologne earlier this year.

Transparent Propafilm RCU is Innovia Films’ latest BOPP development and provides up to one and a half years proven protection from mineral oil migration. The film application is a flow wrap of the tray containing the chocolates inside the box.

Joachim Janz, Innovia Films’ sales account manager, explained: “We are pleased to be able to provide our customer, Halloren Schokoladenfabrik AG, with a film to match their requirements, particularly around barrier. Propafilm RCU has a proven mineral oil barrier and looks great.”
