Confectionery & Permeability – The Good Life The coating possibilities available to us today are very much greater and, as you would expect, the complexities have grown even faster!  Let me try to explain how it all works as the rewards are potentially huge – increasing shelf life, improving quality, appearance and texture for the chocolate, confectionery, bakery and ice cream industries.

"PoP" goes the weasel Designer coatings that will keep the carbonated "Pop" in the bottle and stop flavours going "off" When those clever people first created and introduced plastic bottles soon after WW2 (1947), they must have thought they had a wonder product – and when PET bottles were introduced in the Seventies it must have seemed like the ultimate answer for fizzy drinks.
