The ISM - Confectionery Fair in Cologne

Family Weihofen was at the Confectionery Fair in Cologne 2015

Also in 2015 was the Confectionery Fair ISM again in Cologne in the exhibition halls of the Cologne Messe Gmbh. For the 45th time were trade visitors, but also "ordinary" visitors invited the latest trends and the best candy in the world to marvel at. Many people think of chocolate confectionery directly, but this show had much more to offer!

Healthy Sweets

Healthy snacks and conscious confectionery consumption (sounds weird, but it is so) coming increasingly to the fore. Food trends such as vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free foods have also the producer of confectionery inspired. So astonished thousands of visitors to the ISM on the latest trends that are of course themselves should try! Visitors and representatives from around the world, small start-up companies and large corporations met, talked and could certainly make a lot of good, new contacts.

Greatest Confectionery Fair in the world

The International Confectionery Fair is - according to organizers - the "biggest and most important trade fair for snack foods, chocolate, fruit gums and other sweets in the world!". Here are the latest trends around the world and the potential seller in the coming months. Again and again in February found this grandiose exhibition held in Cologne. Nearly 40,000 visitors are expected for the next ISM in 2016th

In the exhibition halls in Cologne Deutz is presented to confectionery and colors It's in. Chocolate, cocoa, chips and other snack foods, chocolates, baked goods up to the ice cream! A change in consumer behavior always brings new ideas to the market: Such as the full-fledged cereal bar. The latest additions are: The vegan chips! Potatoes provide here is not the basis but Savoy! Many vitamins and minerals instead of fat and calories ... Sounds good, but hopefully the taste is also good. Completely new was the Hemp chocolate ... yes, exactly: Hemp! After a panel of this chocolate one is determined entirely relaxed :)

New ideas at the Confectionery Fair ISM

This year we were for the first time on the Confectionery Fair in Köln Deutz and were overwhelmed by the offer. Many halls full with more booths and each booth presented companies from all countries today. The halls were classified by subject and then the passages were numbered and sorted by country. In other words, we have not managed to see it all! My kids loved it and we will probably visit the fair in 2016 again. Of course, it was at the beginning of something exciting, as we had to smuggle my son only in the exhibition halls, as he really was too young. (The exhibitors have a minimum age set to "freaking" children to avoid) So much chocolate and sweets in one place my kids had long not seen.

Right next to ISM is the ProSweet cologne happening

Parallel to the ISM, ProSweets Cologne was found in Hall 10.1 of the Cologne fair again. More than 300 companies from over 30 countries presented intelligent solutions for the confectionery industry. Also the supply, production and packaging of confectionery eventually must be working. At ProSweets we were amazed when we saw a robotic arm placed on a large packaging line the chocolates perfectly into the appropriate packaging. Machines for the production of nougat or chocolate: Everything was there and built so that they could accurately monitor the progress of the production. It was rounded off by many colorful wrappers and cans for storage of products.

It was a very tiring but very interesting visit of the ISM in Cologne. We left the fair with a lot of bags of chocolate and candy!
