ISM New Product Showcase: The top innovations of 2018

New products play a centrestage role at every ISM, the world's largest trade fair for sweets and snacks. New recipes, flavours, packing and marketing strategies push the industry forward and create impulses in the retail trade. The trade visitors' interest in the New Product Showcase, the special trend event at ISM in Hall 2.2, is correspondingly high.

Countless trade visitors took part in the voting for the top innovations again this year. Here the top three:

1. Fruit Balls by HPW AG

2. Brasiliero by GOT7 Nutrition GmbH & Co. KG

3. Little Love by Lovechock

The ISM Packaging Award powered by ProSweets Cologne goes to: myChipsBox GmbH – organic bag for crisps

First place is reserved for a fruit snack that is made of dried, tropical fruits. The products contain neither sugar substitutes nor fruit concentrates and are vegan and gluten-free certified. The fruits are directly processed and packed from the BRC-certified manufacturing company in Ghana. Available in five flavours. With this product profile, the "Fruit Balls" of the manufacturer HPW from Switzerland comply with the current trend towards natural ingredients and sugar-free snacks.

A wafer filled with cocoa cream enriched with protein and hazelnuts, manufactured without any added sugar: the German company GOT7 took second place under the top innovations with this product. "Brasiliero" is also topical and trendy with its gluten-free label.

"Little Love", a chocolate bar of the Dutch manufacturer Lovechock, claimed third place. Raw chocolate (the beans are not roasted, but instead ground), that is milk, soya, palm oil and gluten-free, is sweetened with nectar from coconut blossoms. Only organic raw materials are processed, the chocolate is furthermore vegan.

The ISM Packaging Award powered by ProSweets Cologne that was conferred for the second time, goes to the Germany company myChipsBox for the organic bag it presented at ISM, which is 100 percent bio-degradable.

In total, almost 200 new products were presented in the New Product Showcase.
