Confectionery Packaging Manufacturer

We are a manufacturer of confectionery packaging that offers:

Easter Egg Packaging

Our Puracoat™ is an evolutionary product in food barrier packaging, offering confectionery manufacturers an environmentally friendly solution to conventional plastic, PE and other forms of barrier control. You can read more on the benefits of Puracoat® by visiting our Tesco Croquembouche case study.

Furthermore, Purapackaging offers a comprehensive range of in-house special finishes and applications that can add real value to your confectionery product’s packaging, from foil blocking and embossing, to soft touch, gloss, satin and matt emulsion.

Our confectionery packaging also appeals to retailers and brand owners who are looking to increase product visibility and of course, maximise brand impact. In 2016, the Sherwood Group won ‘Cartonboard Pack of the Year’ at the UK Packaging Awards, for the innovative packaging design of Harrods’ confectionery product, ‘Harlequin Bauble’.

BRC accreditation

Our confectionery packaging is produced in our Nottingham BRC accredited manufacturing site. All our packaging products adhere to the rules of Good Manufacturing Practices, exclusively using low migration inks. We can also offer FSC board and PLA window material to widen our environmentally friendly offer.

The BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials sets high standards for hygiene, safety and quality of packaging products. It is often specified as a requirement by leading retailers.


Our state-of-the-art design and modern manufacturing methods begin with the Smartbox audit process. This is where our in-house team of experts from across the production spectrum come together to analyse your packaging needs and find ways to minimise your costs. We also conduct sustainable packaging audits as part of a constant monitoring process to assess the whole packaging cycle. This information is then fed in to the design process, where we combine innovative CAD design with branding expertise, and work closely with the top retailers and high street brands.

We then manufacture your packaging, ensuring fit for purpose and aiming for maximum speed, from design to shelf. What’s more, you can choose from a comprehensive range of in-house special finishes and applications that add real value to your product’s packaging. We can provide prototypes, samples and short print runs on request.
