Award winning confectionery meets award winning packaging! Confectionery classics from Copperpot® Originals, including fantastic fudge and heavenly honeycomb, have been packaged in cartons from Benson Group in two new styles of cartonboard containers.

Skillet style packaging is being used for three product flavours: Caramel & Sea Salt, Milk Chocolate Coated Honeycomb, and All Butter Fudge. Incada Excel 450 micron board has been used with a standard ink set, coupled with satin varnish and spot UV for a luxurious touch. Foil blocking highlights the Copperpot name on runs of 10,000 of the new style packs.

The petal top style was chosen for five flavours in the range: All Butter Fudge, Milk Chocolate Butter Fudge, Milk Chocolate Honeycomb, White Chocolate Honeycomb, and Caramel & Sea Salt. Again Incada Excel 450 micron board has been used with a standard ink set, coupled with satin varnish and spot UV. Foil blocking highlights the Copperpot name on runs of 10,000 packs of the petal top design cartons.

Much of the final product produced is for export markets, including USA, Mexico, Japan and Australia.

Mark Brian, commenting about the packaging selected for Copperpot® Originals, said: “To compliment premium confectionery, our stylish packaging blends the classic heritage of the Copperpot brand with contemporary design – where the product is king!

“We endeavour to use local suppliers wherever possible, and have forged a long-term partnership with a Cornish design agency – we think they’re great, and hope you agree too!”

About Copperpot® Originals

Located in St.Ives, Cornwall, Copperpot® Originals are a true product of time, including an accumulation of three generations of confectionery expertise, which all started in the family kitchen over 25 years ago. Initially making delicious fudge for the family-owned shop in Cornwall, the business soon started to supply other speciality retailers throughout the country, before overseas exports of fudge began.

Even today, these award-winning products are still expertly crafted in small batches to maintain their superior taste and quality.
