Our profession: To give confectionery products a distinctive finish
Whether glazing, releasing or sealing confectionery, CAPOL® products have played an essential role in virtually every area of confectionery manufacturing and finishing for decades.
Perfect protection against sticking – Release agents for confectionery
CAPOL® release agents already provide ideal protection for confectionery against sticking during the production process. CAPOL® release agents also play a decisive role as coatings, as they protect the goods from moisture to prolong shelf life and enhance the appearance inside and outside the packaging.
Mouth-watering looks – Glazes for confectionery
One factor plays a decisive role in confectionery production – its mouth-watering look. CAPOL® glazes give you an ideal start. CAPOL® glazes not only put a shine on products, but they also have an impact on the product's texture in the mouth.
It's all about the perfect coating – Sealing confectionery
CAPOL® sealing agents provide the perfect coatings anywhere confectionery needs to be protected from drying out, while preventing increased humidity from affecting the finish created by CAPOL® glazes.
CAPOLAN® products – fat-coated organic and inorganic raw materials – prevent undesired chemical reactions from taking place, prolonging the product's shelf life.
How we develop and grow
Our food engineers are constantly optimising our standard products and developing new ones to meet the demands on quality our customers have come to expect from us and to satisfy current market and manufacturing trends and developments.
