This latest briefing from just-food on global confectionery analyses some of the key issues facing the sector - and interviews some of the leading players in the sector.

From the recent heightened scrutiny on sugar and confectionery's alleged role in obesity to dealing with the intractable issue of child labour and from the two-speed market for chewing gum and the potential of developing economies, just-food looks at some of the hot issues in global confectionery.

Dean Best, just-food’s editor, met senior executives from chocolate makers Guylian and Natra - and from candy suppliers The Jelly Belly Candy Co. and Bon Bon Buddies - at the ISM confectionery industry trade show to hear their views on the challenges and opportunities for the sector. They certainly had some very interesting views.

Jonathan Thomas analyses the prospects for low-sugar chocolate, with insight from ingredients suppliers Cargill and Barry Callebaut.

just-food's contributing editor Ben Cooper argues the cocoa sector can only be deemed truly sustainable if child labour is eradicated.

And Ben also discussed Mondelez International's new sustainability strategy - taking in areas like healthier products, the company's impact on the environment and its sourcing - with the Cadbury owner's vice president of external affairs Christine McGrath.

It is a must-read report for those keen to prepare for the challenges facing the confectionery sector and harness the opportunities in front of it.
