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 is very pleased with the Propafilm™ 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,” enthused Juan Jesús Losada, General Manager and Owner of Caramelos La Pájara.
Propafilm™ FFB and FFC form part of Innovia Films’ Fast Flexible Films (FFF) range. The grades used here - Propafilm™ FFB and FFC - 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.
“It is great to have helped our customer Caramelos La Pájara chose 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,” explained Susana Perez-Canales, Innovia Films’ Sales & Marketing Manager, Spain & Portugal
