SWEET TEC - Global challenges and chances for Confectionery - 24/25 October 2017 CIS-725 Seminar expired

Sugar reduction and new sweetening trends are always a current topic, especially for confectionery products. The debate over a sugar tax in some countries of Europe has, however, given to this topic an additional boost in the last months. The SweetTec 2017 contributes to this development with a whole thematic block - in addition to the development of new sweetening trends and trends of sugar reduced products and natural sweeteners, the science behind sugar reduction will be analyzed, too.


Amongst others, further main topics are process optimization, innovative and alternative mogul technology as well as the latest technology developments and packaging trends.

A broad framework program and demonstrations complete this year‘s SweetTec program.


Here are some of our topics:

  •  Current product trends & consumer insights on the international confectionery market
  • Nutrition Trends: Health benefits of confectionery products
  • Brexit: Impact on European trademarks and designs for sweets
  • Trends in sugar-reduced products and natural sweeteners: Ingredients & production processes
  • „Sweet but innocent“ – healthier sugar designed by biotechnology
  • The key to increasing efficiency - FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) - Basics and recommendations for the use in the confectionery industry
  • Round table expert talk: „Sweeteners in focus: The future of sweetening“
  • Efficiency increase for in-house transports by the use of driverless transport vehicles (FTF / FTS)
  • Customer contaminant protection by new innovative x-ray detectable composite plastic starch trays
