Getting ready for ISM 2017


Over 70 UK confectionery, snacks and chocolate companies will take part in 2017’s ISM tradeshow in Cologne.  The world’s leading exhibition for the industry acts as a business hub for companies to meet buyers from around the world and the UK pavilion stand will once again be one of the largest country groups in the show.

PS8 Ltd is delighted to once again organise the UK pavilion stand at ISM.   “The UK presence at ISM is a fabulous showcase of confectionery products that have stood the test of time with their values of quality and tradition coupled with production innovation.  Alongside so many respected regular exhibitors, it’s great to see the 22 new companies in the pavilion offering plenty of new products for the visiting international buyers.” – Sandra Sullivan, Director PS8 Ltd.

Traditional UK confectionery always features big at ISM, and 2017 is no exception.  Delicious buttery shortbread from the likes of Walkers Shortbread, Paterson Arran and Dean’s of Huntly can be seen alongside creamy luxury fudge from Fudge Kitchen and Gardiners of Scotland. England’s favourite toffee makers, Walkers Nonsuch will be sampling their beautiful range which was established in 1894.  Jakeman’s Confectioners return to ISM with their menthol based confectionery, The Serious Sweets Co with their range of traditional candy with a twist and Golden Casket Group with their huge range of brands, some which date from the 1700s.

Savoury snacks are also featured strongly on the pavilion in 2017.  Indian snack specialists, Cofresh will be displaying their Eat Real range. New exhibitor, The Kings Deli will be tempting visitors with their range of crisps.  There will be delicious nuts to sample from New York Delhi and new exhibitor’s Calbee’s innovative Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks.

There are several companies specializing in the private label market. JLM Global Brands will exhibit their market leading popped snacks.  New exhibitor Tommy Tucker is the UK’s largest independent popcorn manufacturer supplying over 90% of British cinemas.  Private label specialists, R Crawford Northern will show their hard and filled boiled sweets, lollipops and liquorice.  Macleans Highland Bakery will showcase their range high quality biscuits both branded and for private label.
