As a candy wholesaler, the Weaver Nut team recently attended the NCA's Sweets & Snacks Expo - the confectionery and snack industry's most successful, world-class event.
Founded in 1884 in Chicago by representatives of 69 confectionery manufacturers, the National Confectioners Association, or NCA, is one of the oldest trade associations in the world.
The Expo is the largest and fastest growing candy and snack show in the world, where the attendees are able to not only see candy, chocolate and gum products, but also have an opportunity to discover thousands of snack, nut and cookie products.
The Sweets & Snacks Expo took place in Chicago on May 24 - 26, attracting more than 16,000 qualified professionals from 90 countries, 750 exhibiting companies display more than 4 acres of candy and snacks.
The most innovative ideas, concepts and products are awarded at the show in two of the fastest growing categories in the marketplace: sweets and snacks.
The Expo provides amazing learning opportunities, including comprehensive snack and specialty sessions. This year they added the Discovery Theater - so that industry thought leaders could offer focused sessions in two theaters all three days of the show.
The Sweets & Snacks Expo also provided a first-hand look into new products in every category - from candy, chocolate and gourmet specialties to candy-making equipment, packaging and plus items, and highlights the latest as well as the fading trends in the candy industry.
At Weaver Nut, we are driven by our passion for candy and commitment to continuously offer the finest and sought after wholesale candy - currently carrying over 50 categories of delicious and unique candies in bulk to satisfy anyone's standards, tastes, and needs.
