What is Confectionery Packaging?

What comes to our mind when we think of candy? Is it our childhood, holidays, or are they the guests of the little breaks we give ourselves during the day? Confectionery and chocolate products are not just food products. Although it has different names culturally all over the world, confectionery is a treat product of various ceremonies such as holidays and weddings, where people share their happiness. Isn’t it obvious that we don’t buy these products, with which we have such a meaningful and emotional bond, just for their taste?

So how do we decide when purchasing?

When we consider children, who are the age group that consumes candies the most, it is quite difficult to attract their attention. The design of the confectionery packaging is very important at this point. Kids love packaging with cartoon characters, creative illustrations, and vibrant colors. What about parents? For them, in addition to the quality of the packaging, information such as the production conditions of the confectionery, the amount of calories and the ingredients it contains are much more important. Therefore, a confectionery manufacturer should prefer a packaging design that is eye-catching as well as containing transparent information about its product.
