Chocolate - Avoiding transportation meltdown
SilverSkin® Thermal Covers for Luxury Chocolates
SilverSkin® thermal covers for chocolates have been designed to protect confectionary from a number of different threats, all of which result in wastage. The issue of shipping temperature-sensitive fine chocolates, and shipping them safely so they arrive in perfect, consumable condition, has to take into account both ends of the temperature spectrum.
SilverSkin® features for luxury chocolates
The darker side of chocolate
Summertime spells high alert. If fine and artistic chocolates melt, they lose their shape and will be rejected. But the other big question often facing shippers is: what happens if they freeze? The answer is the flavours in fine chocolates are often spoilt. Furthermore, white spots can form as a result of a ‘fat or sugar bloom’. While these unsightly marks don’t necessarily affect the quality of the product, they are visually unappealing to consumers, often leading to rejection.
While temperature protection for transporting chocolates helps stabilise these states, any protective solution must also deal with chocolate’s other enemy: water. Exposure to a little moisture – such as humidity – isn’t usually a major issue. However, exposure to droplets can often ruin intricate chocolate designs. SilverSkin® thermal covers for chocolates are splash and rain resistant.
Shipping in the sweet spot
As the name suggests, SilverSkin® thermal covers offer a superior level of thermal protection for chocolates. Comprised of formatted layers that reflect solar radiation and insulating layers that help regulate product temperatures, the combination helps keep chocolates within their temperature sweet spot at 20 to 22°C.
This form of thermal protection is particularly useful during tarmac time, where the product can spend extended periods of time exposed to the elements whilst awaiting loading and off-loading, or during first and final mile transportation.
Innovation for protection
Innovation is inherent in every aspect of our SilverSkin® thermal covers for chocolates. The entire protective range has been developed to offer peak performance in all transit situations.
