ProSweets Cologne – the international supplier fair for the sweets and snacks industry will also be taking a look at the industry's future in 2018. An important topic for the consumer: Less artificial ingredients, less sugar and fat, instead more natural tastes, colours and consistencies for sweets and snacks. In order to adapt the sensory and nutritional characteristics in a natural way, the manufacturers are making use of the opportunities of the ingredients supplier industry. Market-leading companies such as Döhler, GNT and Olam are represented at ProSweets Cologne as well as smaller and medium-sized companies. ProSweets Cologne is once again being staged parallel to ISM, the world's largest and most important trade fair for sweets and snacks and thus in the direct vicinity of its sales market.
