The confectionery market generates $150 billion every year, primarily due to the brand trust that food manufacturers have established with customers worldwide. After all, consumers tend to avoid an untested or unreliable product, which is why confectionery manufacturers must maintain the quality of their products.
The Risks Involved
According to the Food and Drug Administration, confectioneries rank third in total product recalls in the U.S. in 2014, due to the presence of contaminants such as metal fragments and glass shards introduced during the manufacturing process.
Sample Confectionery Products
Recalls can place a serious dent on your company’s profits (over $9 million per recall according to Grocery Manufacturer Association); even worse, a product recall can ruin reputation you have built among your customers. This can easily affect the sales of all your other products, be they candy, sweets, snack bars, or chocolate truffle.
