The National Confectioners Association (NCA) launched National Candy Month Central, a digital hub for facts about chocolate, candy, gum and mints. Each June, the association helps Americans celebrate “the sweeter side of life” by highlighting innovation in the confectionery industry, as well as recognizing those across the country who proudly make the special treats that bring people together during holidays and family celebrations.
“National Candy Month is a time to honor the classic American manufacturing success story of the confectionery industry,” John Downs, NCA president & CEO, said. “We’re excited to share the stories of the companies and individuals who make the confections many of us enjoy throughout the year, especially as those companies empower consumers to treat in a way that fits into a happy, balanced lifestyle.” For more information, visit National Candy Month Central.
