Our ways of working

We have a gum base for every bubble or chewing gum you may want to produce. We have gum bases for any format: dragées, sticks, tabs, chunks, hollow balls, filled gum, etc. We can supply you with a gum base that complies with your requirements and, of course, with the highest quality standards. And if we don’t have it, we will develop it.

Every time we develop a new gum base, we focus on the physical properties that the chewing gum should have: elasticity, plasticity, hardness and the desired texture. The organoleptic properties of the final product are our key guide throughout the technical assistance and gum development. Optimal performance in the production lines is important because of its impact on productivity.

Working with Cafosa means we can be by your side at all stages of the process:
