The confectionery and snack industries’ premier business-to-business event returns on Monday 23 to Chicago with a packed agenda featuring new product launches, business-building solutions and merchandising innovations, as well as 100 hundreds of exhibitors from major companies like Hershey to independent artisan chocolatiers.

Thousands of confectionery and snack professionals will be heading to McCormick Place over four days for the National Confectioners Association (NCA) sponsored event.

Now in its 25th​ year, the annual trade will shine a light on start-ups from the past three years who have been making waves in the highly competitive and innovative confectionery & snack industries.

Starting a new business is always challenging, but deciding to start one during the last three years is even harder. We are proud to showcase these new confectionery and snack companies as they make their debut at the 2022 Sweets & Snacks Expo​,” said John Downs, president & CEO of the National Confectioners Association. “This show continues to push the envelope on trends and new products, and these startups are a perfect example of why this show is so valuable to our attendees and exhibitors. I look forward to having these companies join us for the next 25 years of the Sweets & Snacks Expo​.”

The newcomers will be part of a curated selection of innovative businesses and can be found on Startup Street.

  • The Sweets & Snacks Expo is the premier business-to-business event for the confectionery and snack industries.
