Twisting Candy Wrap

Twisting Candy Wrap

Here’s one thing we know: everyone loves gorgeous, radiant candy wrapping.

Confectioners and consumers want bright and brilliant wrapping solutions for their individually packaged sweeties. And because candies are bought or consumed in generous amounts, we’re also seeing new packaging trends: confectioners are switching to paper-based wrappers in a bid to significantly reduce unnecessary single-use plastics.

AR Metallizing produces mono-material, 100% recyclable candy wrappers. Our metallized paper is ideal for confectioners looking for twistable wrapping for hard candies, toffees, caramels and other types of sweet.

While gorgeous looks are important, technical properties twisting candy paper is also key? Our twisting candy wrap paper is specially designed to run quickly and efficiently through converting machinery. It has excellent foldability and its twisting properties mean that can be a competitive mono-material alternative to traditional candy wrapper materials. Our paper is, of course, also optimized for printing equipment, processes and inks.
