America’s leading chocolate and candy companies are coming together to make healthier choices easier.
The National Confectioners Association (NCA), the trade organization that represents chocolate, candy, gum and mints, as well as the companies that make these products, made a commitment with us at our 2017 Building a Healthier Future Summit. By 2022, NCA and its participating member companies will voluntarily print calorie information on the front of products and make at least half of their single-serving products 200 calories or less.
Participating companies include:
- Ferrara Candy Company
- Ghiradelli Chocolate
- Mars Wrigley
- Russell Stover Chocolates
Progress will be monitored and reported by PHA in conjunction with the Hudson Institute.
90% of consumers are likely to switch brands to one associated with a good cause, given similar price and quality.
