Since 1994 Candy Industry is the leading confectionery magazine, providing interested readers with a global view of the entire confectionery industry - from production to retail. In-depth analyses, comprehensive business profiles and reports on the latest developments in processing, research, development, and growth are among the core competencies of Candy Industry. As a sponsor of the SAVE FOOD initiative, the magazine is committed to the responsibility that goes along with its industry-wide influence.
Statement of Bernard Payniak
"Too often, popular culture in the developed world tends to look at packaging as a necessary evil. The push to minimize waste in packaging has been well-documented, and rightly so. Nonetheless, many of us take for granted what packaging does, preserve and protect our food supply.
The loss of food in developing and transitioning countries because of poor infrastructure, inadequate storage and the lack of packaging is astounding; estimates run between 20% to 75% in food losses. When Candy Industry was asked to be a media sponsor for the Save Food initiative, which was launched at interpack 2011, it was clear to us that this was one sweet cause to embrace. By helping get the food from farmers to towns and cities more efficiently, the Save Food initiative improves local and regional economies in the most direct way, which is putting food more affordably on peoples’ tables."
