At this year’s SWOP trade show, the top specialists in the confectionery process and packaging supply sector – Chocotech, Hansa Mixer, Hänsel Processing, Theegarten-Pactec, and Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH (WDS) – will be informing visitors about their product and service portfolios at a joint Confectionery Pavilion.

This represents a unique opportunity for confectionery manufacturers to benefit from access to combined expertise through the entire processing and packaging process. The Confectionery Pavilion will be located in Hall W2/ Stand B56.

Beyond being widely respected suppliers to the confectionery sector, what these five companies have in common are extremely high standards of quality, innovation leadership, high systems efficiency, reliability and longevity, a proven customer orientation and commitment to their customers’ success. The companies work together to develop comprehensive customized solutions, supplying complete process and packaging systems with coordinated interfaces – enabling customers to capitalize on the expertise of the five companies.

Each one of them has been supplying confectionery manufacturers for decades – offering them different and complementary areas of expertise. Their customers around the world greatly benefit from exceptional synergy and strength of innovation. SWOP is an ideal starting point for confectionery manufacturers at the trade show who are not only looking to inform themselves on product production, shaping and packaging, but who have a product idea and are searching for information on the entire process – from basic production all the way through to packaging.
