Glazing & Sanding

BCH offer equipment for the glazing/oiling of traditional liquorice products, and the sugar/sour (Pica Pica) coating of fruit flavoured liquorice products.

Glazing Unit

Glazing units are installed within the cooling section of the line for liquorice ropes to pass through an alcohol/wax batch at 45-60°C.
