With thoughtful and in-depth features, innovative product spotlights and the latest news, International Confectionery magazine covers all angles of the sweets and machinery sector. Capturing the latest news from all around the world, we bring you the key breaking stories and hard-hitting reports, with up-to-date events and videos.

About Hand Media

We continue to independently advise international investors within the global media landscape as well as running our own successful international media business as ultimate proof that we practice what we preach. We write, design, edit and publish 11 publications and host several events across a range of industries.
