As the name suggests, food safe candy packaging is specifically formulated for use with products meant to be eaten. While the concept seems simple, a lot of work is put into ensuring that food gets packaged safely.

In order to be considered safe, food packaging must not leach toxic substances into the product. Many plastics break down in certain environmental conditions.

Some material breakdown emits substances that are unsafe for consumption. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will not consider such products safe.

It is important to use food packaging that the FDA recognizes as safe. Toxic substances from some packaging can leach into your candy. This could lead to customers falling ill.

Our clear candy packaging tubes are made from Cellulose Acetate Propinate. Cellulose comes from plants and can be an ingredient in polymers that make up packaging.

The FDA recognizes Cellulose Acetate Propinate as a safe packaging option for food. Because it is considered safe for human consumption, it can also be an adhesive used on candy packaging.

Because our candy packaging is made from safe materials, you can have confidence that your customers are protected.

Sales Benefits of Clear Candy Tubes

When choosing the right packaging for your candy, consider how visibility can impact sales. If customers don’t see your product on the shelves, they won’t buy it. You’ll want to make sure your candy catches the attention of shoppers.

Our clear plastic tubes can help achieve those goals.

When it comes to product sales, ambiguity is not your friend. If people don’t know exactly what they are purchasing, they will hesitate and put the product back on the shelf.

With clear tube candy packaging, customers can see exactly what they are purchasing. There is no question about what the package contains. People will see exactly what candy they are purchasing.

Using clear packaging for candy gives you a built-in way to catch the consumer’s eye. The brightly colored candy grabs your attention. When it can be easily seen, you can have confidence that people notice your product.

Modern shoppers look for ways to reduce waste. More and more consumers are paying attention to product packaging. Having packaging that reduces waste gives you a competitive edge.

One great thing about clear plastic tubes is that the customer can reuse them. Some people enjoy using the clear tubes for craft storage, while others will put other candies inside. The materials in our products can also be recycled in some municipalities.

It can be frustrating to have to raise retail prices because your candy packaging costs too much. Expensive candy also reduces sales. People are more likely to make impulse purchases when a product is inexpensive.

Luckily, clear candy packaging is affordable for businesses of every size. Whether you have just started your business or you’ve been in the game for years, clear plastic tubes can fit into your budget.

Product Protection

While your candy package can help with sales, the primary purpose is to protect the product. Your packaging needs to protect the candy from the time it leaves the manufacturing facility until the customer opens it at home.

Our food safe clear tubes can also help with product protection.

Despite its lightweight and thin nature, a clear plastic tube is quite durable. They are unlikely to break or dent if dropped.

These food safe packaging options protect your candy from the elements. They also protect your candy from customers who cough or sneeze when they walk by store displays. Customers won’t have concerns about the sanitary condition of your candy.

Clear plastic food safe tubes also protect candy during transportation. Because they don’t break easily, you can rest assured that your products will arrive at their destination intact.

And if they get caught in the rain, or there’s a spill in the kitchen at home, the waterproof packaging keeps the candy dry. Consumers are particularly happy when their candies aren’t ruined during everyday activities.

Types of Packaging

Clear candy packaging tubes come in different lengths and widths. We offer tubes that are open on both ends. We also offer tubes that come with sealed bottoms.

These clear tubes provide great solutions in Point of Purchase (POP) Displays. These displays highlight products and are often seen around holiday shopping seasons.

The tubes we offer in our POP Displays have thin, small diameter tubes. The open end and sealed bottom tubes come with an appropriate cap.

We understand that there is no “one size fits all” standard when it comes to food packaging. These candy tubes can be customized to meet the unique needs of your product.

You can add decoration, logos, and print to the tubes to include brand awareness. In combination with these tubes, this can set your candy apart from all of the choices on store shelves.
