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.
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-Magazine 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. 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 SG-Frühjahrsgala (the former SG New Year Reception) 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.
