sweets processing

sweets processing

sweets processing focuses on the value chain and covers all aspects from sourcing ingredients and raw materials to production technology; from IT and logistics to packaging and packaging material. The journal features articles in German and English and provides all companies active in the confectionery industry supply sector with information on confectionery business.

About Us

International confectionery association SWEETS GLOBAL NETWORK e V (SG) is an established network of over 300 member companies based in ten countries. SG is the leading communication  platform for confectionery professionals in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and beyond. Meanwhile, most companies involved in manufacturing and retailing confectionery (wholesalers, specialist retailers, importers, brokers, producers) are members. All enjoy huge benefits, such as a range of high quality services and invitations to exclusive, member only events.  There are an additional 40 supporting members active in the confectionery industry supply sector.

The International Sweets Business Forum in Berlin has taken SG well beyond the traditional territory of conventional training seminars and workshops. Social events, such as the New Year Reception in Munich or the ISM WARM UP held on the eve of the ISM in Cologne now rank as must-attend fixtures in the confectionery business year.

While acknowledging the growing significance of the global information and knowledge community, SG never loses sight of what’s going on at a local level.  Articles in SG-Magazin and sweets processing, the SG-Newsletter (several times a week), annual publication of the SG-Directory and worldwide contacts bear witness to the pronounced internationality of the association.

    „Ever since I've been in the sweets business, the SG simply is a part of it all. The different events that I attend on a regular basis are always highly informative and organised just perfectly. They are the platform that allowed me to knit my network, which is of vital importance to me, and to update and foster it constantly. “
