Delicious Chocolates Wrapped in Mineral Oil Barrier Film



The German chocolate manufacturer, Halloren Schokoladenfabrik AG, has chosen Innovia Films’ Propafilm™ RCU as part of the packaging for its new collection of Oh là là chocolates.

Based in Halle (Saale), Saxony-Anhalt, and founded in 1804, Halloren Schokoladenfabrik AG is the oldest chocolate factory in Germany and offers an extensive range of finest 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; very important considerations in this exciting confectionery packaging.

The Oh là là chocolate assortment was launched on the Halloren Schokoladenfabrik AG stand at the International Sweets Exhibition (ISM) in Cologne, earlier this year.  Three flavours are included in the box: Marc de Champagne, Chocolat Noir, Crème de Nougat. The attractive design shows all women attracting attributes but of course the fantastic taste of the chocolate is the most attractive of all.

Transparent Propafilm™ RCU is Innovia Films’ latest BOPP development and provides up to 1.5 years proven protection from mineral oil migration*.  The film application is a flow wrap of the tray containing the chocolates inside the box.

Holger Eschenburg, Innovia Films’ Sales Manager, Germany 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.”
