The top 3 innovations of ISM in 2022 were

1. Winner: Cabosse - Confiserie Vandenbulcke

ISM top innovation winner: 1. Cabosse - Confiserie Vandenbulcke

Confiserie Vandenbulcke from Belgium achieved first place in this year's New Product Showcase Award.

The jury was impressed by how holistically the whole cocoa fruit was brought to life in a praline. According to the jury, the Belgian chocolatiers succeeded in capturing the taste essence of a cocoa pod with all its nuances in a fruity, chocolatey way in the Cabosse filling, thus creating a new taste experience for pralines. By using the whole fruit organically, not only is there less waste, but the nutrients and minerals are also preserved, giving Cabosse its unique taste.

2. Winner: Selectum GmbH with the Paddies Cheesetastic from Austria

ISM top innovation winner: 2. Mitsuba Seaweed Crisps - Mitsuba

Seaweed is a traditional ingredient in Asian cuisine. But how do you turn this exotic ingredient into an enjoyable, crunchy, spicy snack? The snack specialists from Mitsuba have impressively demonstrated this in combination with sea salt, paprika or wasabi and without the use of palm oil and flavour enhancers and were rewarded by the jury with 2nd place.

3. Winner: Toffee Noir – Arna Falco

ISM top innovation winner: 3. Toffee Noir – Arna Falco

How does a "traditional chocolate toffee manage to win an innovation prize? That's what the Spanish toffee specialists from Arna Falco showed at this year's ISM. The result: a wonderfully soft toffee with a deep chocolate note. This toffee, rolled in tender cocoa powder, is not only an experience for chocolate and toffee lovers, but also a great vegan alternative made from tiger nut milk. 3rd place for a new generation of vegan toffee enjoyment.
