Chocolate and confectionery is, above all, an incredibly creative sector. The opportunity to innovate, with new flavours and formats to satisfy new eating occasions, is great. At the same time, the pressure of looming HFSS (foods high in saturated fat, salt and sugar) regulation and advertising restrictions, is set to create challenges for the entire category. Whatever your next project, our Customer Innovation team can help.

Your confectionery Co-Development partner

We can use our experience and technical know-how to work with you to co-develop a solution that’s exactly right for your product, process or application. In particular we offer a range of cocoa butter alternatives and filling fats which can extend shelf life by restricting bloom, and improve flavour release, taste and sensory experience.

If you’d like to know more about innovative solutions for chocolate and confectionery, please contact our Customer Innovation team today.

The impact of responsibility

As the category continues to evolve, ethical and sustainability credentials are opening opportunities for manufacturers to meet the discerning needs of their environmentally minded consumers.
