Snack and confectionery distributors are facing changing consumer expectations. With more ready-to-eat options and the continued rise of snacking trends replacing conventional meal times, consumers are looking for increased convenience, quality, and sustainability.

Many manufacturers currently lean on standard pillow bags as their everyday low-cost packaging and are reluctant to change over to resealable doy-style packaging that is taking over shelves.

Rovema packaging equipment delivers flexibility and high filling accuracy. Single-source snack and confectionery packaging systems can include vertical form fill seal machines for retail or bulk packs, as well as a variety of cartoning and case packaging machines.

Capabilities include mixed case packing solutions to adapt to new retailer demands, gas flushing for extending shelf life, patented seal systems for freshness and operational efficiency, and highly accurate filling for high-speed packaging of a high variety of bag styles- from pillow bags to stand up doy style pouches.

Confectionery packaging expert Maryann Walburn comments:

“I am really looking forward to our first exhibition at the Sweets and Snack Expo Supplier Showcase this year. ROVEMA has been involved in the Snack and Confectionery industries for decades and we have several excellent solutions that fit multiple price points."

Industry adoption of the RoPack®, ROVEMA's award-winning patented process for forming and filling a VFFS-made doy style stand up pouch, has allowed many producers to meet consumer demands for convenient, resealable stand up pouches - with the footprint and price point benefits that VFFS machines offer over similar HFFS solutions. 

Exhibitors at the NCA's Sweets & Snacks Supplier Showcase should stop by booth 30211 to chat with the Rovema team about snack and confectionery packaging options.
