We present highlights from the 44th ISM at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany from 26-29 January 2014.
The number of exhibitors at the show grew around 5% on last year to 1,476 from 68 different countries.
We met with some of the industry's biggest players including Barry Callebaut, Jelly Belly and PEZ. A cocoa farmer from the Ivory Coast gave us his take on the future of the cocoa industry, while we kept on eye on key ingredients and packaging trends. Much more to follow on the site in the coming days.
