Our confectionery expertise

Gummies and jellies

Whether in front of a shelf or in production, the confectionery variety is endless: Mono or side-by-side, starlight or center filled, multi-colored or multi-flavored, oiled or sugared, different gelling agents, that’s our daily business.

Fondants, toffees and caramels

Fondants, toffees or caramels – with or without chocolate enrobing, our machinery handles them all with great care.

Hard candy

Hard candies are as diverse as people’s taste. Fruity, herbal or milk-based? Our equipment processes mono, side-by-side, center filled, starlight or layered candy – and any combinations.

Our expertise in pack styles

Pillow bags
With up to 440 bags per minute, our vertical packaging machines, such as the SVE 1820 MR twintube bagger, process your sweets at high speeds
Doy Zip
With the stand-up reclosable Doy Zip on the SVE Doy Zip, your products stand out at the point of sale while offering consumers a convenient reclosable feature.
Paper Doy

Stay flexible when it comes to different pack styles. With our large portfolio of reliable and flexible cartoning machines we have got you covered.
Shelf ready cases
Safeguard your products during transport and attractive presentation of your stand-up Doy bags at the point of sale – thanks to a perforation that separates the upper part of the carton, you can have both.
