Among the equipment we provide, as their exclusive representative in the U.S. and Canada, are counters/fillers from Cremer. When 100% accurate product counting is needed, Cremer is the counter of choice. A market leader for more than three decades, counters from Cremer feature robust construction, quality, accuracy, and consistency.
While Cremer counters are often associated with tablets, did you know that they can also accurately count and fill gummies?
Gummies are not only used as candy nowadays. With added ingredients, they have become an alternative to pills and capsules. They are enhanced with active ingredients for health: vitamins for boosting the immune system, calcium that helps strengthen the bones, melatonin to aid sleep, supplements that improve hair, collagen for improving skin, probiotics, Omega-3, etc. Vitamins in gummy form are experiencing growing success in the consumer market. They taste better than any other vitamin product, because a variety of delicious flavors can be added that are just as good as their candy counterparts. They are also easy to consume: soft, chewy and, tasty.
The traditional vitamin tablet can now be packed attractively in a gummy. This is very practical for children who have trouble taking a pill. The vitamin gummy market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% between 2023 and 2032, due in large part to popularity in North America and Asia Pacific, the fastest-growing and second-largest consumer markets. The aforementioned growth rate, compounded over that 10-year period, will triple the size of the overall market. This means new opportunities for the nutraceutical industry.
Gummies – as candy – have traditionally been sold by weight, not count. But in the world of nutraceuticals, a bottle that promises 48 tablets must actually contain that number. This can be achieved through Cremer’s advanced counting and filling machines. This can be a bit more complex than counting and filling tablets, because gummies are sugared products. When you spread out sugar, it can harden and stick. If that happens in moving parts, problems occur. Cremer has developed solutions for this that guarantee accurate counting and bottle filling with minimized maintenance operations.
Beyond counting and filling…
Beyond the counting and filling operation, NJM has the portfolio and the expertise to provide everything else you need for your gummy nutraceutical packaging line… bottle unscrambling, feeding, capping, retorquing, labeling, inspection, bundling, case packing, palletizing, and more. And, we can install and integrate the entire line.
