Our HARIBO treats have brought joy to gummi fans for 100 years. With constant innovation in flavor combinations and new shapes, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Production – with attention to detail
Every HARIBO gummi begins with a creative idea and is first sketched by hand. This template is then used to create a 3D sample drawing for a high-tech milling machine, which produces a plaster prototype. Once the new shape is perfect, several hundred stamps are created for production.
The figures – cast in the same mold
Mold casting requires shallow powder boxes, which are filled with smoothly leveled corn starch. During production, the figure stamps are inserted into the corn starch from above, leaving behind an impression. A conveyor belt then transports the boxes to the next station, where nozzles fill the molds with liquid fruit gummi in fractions of a second. The new fruit gummies then have time to solidify in drying rooms. Finally, we finish off our gummi products with a glossy shine!
Special shapes – created with high pressure
The production process for extruder products is somewhat different: the high-pressure nozzles press the liquid gummi into the desired shape, thus creating, for example, HARIBO Z!NG Sour Streamers or HARIBO Z!NG Sour S’ghetti.
