Natural Ingredients and New Flavours in Confectionery

Natural Ingredients and New Flavours in Confectionery
March 02
13:10 2012

Across many parts of the world, growth rates within the confectionery market are either very modest or static. This is due to a range of factors, examples of which include health concerns over intake of sugar and saturated fats, weak consumer spending following the economic downturn and strong competition from other snack-oriented foods. Nevertheless, innovation levels within the industry remain high, both amongst the world’s leading multinational suppliers and their smaller rivals.

In recent years, many confectionery manufacturers have been reducing sugar and fat levels, as well as removing artificial ingredients and additives in a bid to improve the perceived health and nutritional qualities of their confectionery products. Suppliers are also experimenting with an ever-wider range of ingredients and flavours, with flavour blends and combinations well to the fore in sectors such as fruit-based sweets and chewing gum.

Other trends have included the development of confectionery products geared towards certain times of year – for example, the amount of confectionery targeted at Halloween in the UK has grown significantly over the last decade. In some markets, manufacturers have also brought back confectionery brands and products from times past, catering towards those nostalgic for their earlier years. More products are also emerging in larger sharing bags and packs, targeted at the growing market for social confectionery.

‘Innovations in the Global Confectionery Market’ is a new publication from Leatherhead Food Research, which updates a report published back in 2002.
