The innovative digital platform is steadily growing and driving the digitalisation of the confectionery industry. 

SweetConnect is an open initiative that offers all interested companies the opportunity to participate and work together to shape the future of the confectionery industry. At the trade fair stand, the team will provide information about how to benefit from SweetConnect as a user or partner.
