National Confectioners Association
2019 Progress Report
NCA is bringing together the leading chocolate and candy companies, including Mars Chocolate North America, Ferrara Candy Company, Ferrero, Lindt, Ghirardelli Chocolate, and Russell Stover Chocolates, to commit to voluntarily printing calorie information on the front of products and to making at least half of their single-serving products 200 calories or less.
America’s chocolate and candy companies are committed to helping consumers manage their sugar intake. With strong directional alignment across all types of confectionery companies, we’re empowering consumers to make informed choices and helping them embrace emotional well-being…one treat at a time. In the next few years, people will see more chocolate and candy options in smaller pack sizes with clear calorie labels right on the front of the pack. With a focus on those times throughout the year when chocolate and candy play an important role, we’re providing tools and resources for consumers as they seek to manage their sugar intake. AlwaysATreat.com is a digital hub full of easy-to-use information about the unique role that chocolate and candy play in a happy, balanced lifestyle. It’s all part of our industry commitment to PHA which allows us to be good partners to our retail customers, helping them meet consumers where they want to be met.
