Inflation and Supply Chain Challenges, in Focus at ProSweets Cologne 2023
The supplier fair for sweets and snacks is preparing for the 2023 edition, scheduled for 23.-25.04.2023. Against the backdrop of the huge challenges facing the entire sweets and snacks industry, the 2023 edition is being held as a compact and agile Special Edition parallel to ISM in the halls of Koelnmesse.
For the Special Edition, ProSweets is exclusively offering exhibiting companies complete stand packages in three different executions. For last-minute exhibitors these packages can be booked up until 15.12.2022 via the fair website at the early bird discount. The exhibition will have four sections: Packaging Design and Packaging Materials, Packaging and Production Technology, Food Safety and Quality Assurance as well as Raw Materials and Ingredients.
In addition to the current and future-oriented specialized topics, supply-chain related themes of the new era, changes to the export-oriented geostrategy or energy and resource shortages will also be integrated into the programme. The initial highlights of the event and congress programme have already been set. Thus, for example, Euromonitor, the partner of both trade fairs for many years, will discuss the effects of inflation on the sweets and snacks market in Europe under the title “Inflation Surge and its Impact on Snacks”. The industry sponsor of ProSweets Cologne, DLG, will also discuss approaches to solutions for the global procurement of raw materials and energy efficiency in sweets production together with the ISM on the joint Expert Stage.
