On March 5-7 at the JW Marriott Turnberry Miami in Aventura, Florida, a representation from all channels of trade from BBI, in addition to Senior leaders, gathered for the National Confectioners Association's (NCA) State of the Industry Conference (SOTIC).
The conference served as an opportunity to learn and connect with other professionals from the candy and snack industry while addressing issues affecting the industry in the US, such as supply chain disruption, workforce shortages, sustainability, and health issues. The NCA also unveiled the 2023 State of the Treating report, which provides a timely snapshot of category performance over the past year, including a look at the seasons, and pairs that data with an analysis of chocolate and candy consumers' attitudes and behaviors.
More than 700 senior members of the NCA, along with retail partners and suppliers, attended this year's conference. BBI is a proud sponsor of the SOTIC and the Welcome Reception.
