🍫World Chocolate Day is celebrated every year on July 7.
Besides being a delicious treat, chocolate is also known for its health benefits. Dark chocolate, in particular, is rich in antioxidants that can improve heart health, lower blood pressure, and boost brain function.
Overall, World Chocolate Day is a fun and tasty way to celebrate the joy and happiness that chocolate brings to people’s lives. Purple Diamond employees are huge chocolate lovers. We know how important it is to keep chocolate on the market for consumers because we are also consumers!
Why do Chocolate companies need packaging testing?
1. Protection: Chocolate is a delicate product that can easily get damaged during transportation or storage. Chocolate packaging needs to provide protection from moisture, light, and temperature changes to ensure that the chocolate remains fresh and does not spoil.
2. Shelf life: Packaging materials and designs should ensure the chocolate’s shelf life so that it remains safe to eat and does not go stale.
3. Branding: Packaging influences the first impression of the brand and product. Chocolate packaging must stand out in the market and communicate the brand’s values.
4. Regulations: Packaging materials should comply with the regulations of the country where the product is sold. For example, in the EU countries, chocolate packaging should have all the necessary food information and have correct labeling.
5. Customer experience: The packaging should provide the customer with a pleasant experience when opening and consuming the chocolate. The packaging should be easy to open and dispose of.
Through packaging testing, chocolate companies can ensure that their products are safe, fresh, and meet all necessary regulations. Additionally, testing ensures that the packaging materials and design meet brand and customer requirements, which ultimately helps companies sell more chocolate.
