Partner Statement

“America’s leading chocolate and candy companies are bringing consumers more information and more options in smaller pack sizes, as well as educational tools to help them make informed choices. By 2022, as part of an effort that we call the Always A Treat Initiative, 90% of the participating companies’ best-selling treats will have calorie information right on the front of the pack. More significantly, half of the portfolio of individually-wrapped products will soon be 200 calories or less per pack. It’s all part of our industry commitment to help consumers manage their sugar intake and to be good partners to our retail customers, helping them meet consumers where they want to be met.”
