"I follow the freezing direction from Peter Greweling's book (Chocolates & confections - formal, theory, and techniques for the artisan confectioner) which works really well: 1. Pack the chocolates in sturdy containers and fill as much as…"

"Again, thank you Lana for your invaluable advice. I think for the nut covered truffles, I will freeze the already rolled ganache pieces, and dip and cover with nuts when needed so as to keep the nuts intact... as unlike your pecan piece, they are…"

"Hi Hanna, Could be a good idea, but I guess it would depend on the quantity, perhaps (I think your business is probably quite big)?  Would you like to send me some more details please, or perhaps the website of your supplier so that I can…"

"Hi Mim, You have been searching like i've did. It is impossible to find attractive chocolate packaging here as in Europe. You either have to let it be produced yourself or import from Europe. In both cases a very expensive road.  "

Are you looking to start a chocolate business? Want to talk to others who've been there or done that - or have you been there and done it and want to share with others? This is the place to discuss it.

Any ideas on good priced chocolate packaging in our area?

I would like to know if anyone can advise me on inexpensive packaging for my chocolates. I have already found good sources for transparent acetate boxes of about 3 and 4 square inches on ebay (especially those coming from HK), but I would now like to find some cardboard boxes with inserts and transparent lids. I've already sourced out the obvious companies such as Metropak, Plasbox and Brown Paper Packaging, but has anyone found other less expensive suppliers?See More
