At Sapal SA, we continuously improve our environmental performance.

Our associates are committed in reducing the environmental impact coming from our production. Each and every day, they are searching solutions that consume less energy and use less raw material in order to preserve our planet.


Security and Health

From the very beginning of the conception, our engineers develop wrapping machines strictly respecting the international Security and Health standards. One of our concrete realization is the development of our new chocolate wrapping machine DSD0600H, which offers a patented hermetical sealing technology that keeps the product safe and protected from dust, migrating aromas, external dirt or potential infections.
