Voted best 2015 Plant Tour by Packaging Strategies!
With chocolate candies making up 90% of the company’s products, GKI manufactures a variety of confection types. During the plant tour we got to see several chocolate varieties being dipped, enrobed, cooled and packaged. We also saw the pouch filling line where candies are packaged in 8-ounces bags at speeds of 42-45 bags per minute. The candies are visually inspected at each step of the packaging process and then ran through a metal detector from as a final inspection.
