ProFood Tech Is the Processing Show for the Confectionery Industry


While trends such as wellness and eco-consciousness aren’t slowing down the sales of sweets, they are affecting producers’ choice of ingredients and production processes. 

If your company is altering recipes to incorporate more natural and organic ingredients, offer nutritious fruit and nut add-ins, and eliminate artificial additives or high fructose corn syrup, you may be coming to ProFood Tech for new equipment for mixing, enrobing, cooling, tempering and forming confections with these different formulas.

New equipment can also be more energy efficient or reduce water usage, which is good news for your bottom line, sustainability strategy and brand image.
