Confectionery

The term “confectionery” typically encompasses products such as chocolate and non-chocolate candy; gum; ice cream and frozen desserts; cookies, cakes, and pastries; and other sweet goods such as jams, jellies, and preserves. Non-chocolate candy can be a wide-ranging term classification, particularly at the international level. Marzipan, fruit-paste candies, jelly beans, marshmallows, nut brittles, toffees, and mints all are classified as non-chocolate candies.

Confectionery is sold through one of the broadest spectrum of retail channels of any food product. These channels include supermarkets, grocery stores, mass merchandisers, drug stores, convenience stores, gourmet/speciality stores (including chocolate stores, bulk candy stores, speciality food stores, kitchenware stores, and chains owned by companies that both manufacture and retail chocolate), department stores, health and natural food stores, warehouse clubs, bakeries, coffee houses and cafés, ethnic markets, movie theatres, kiosks and tobacco stores, card and gift shops, toy stores, office supply stores, florists, transportation terminals, mail-order catalogs, online stores on the Internet, and many others, as well as vending machines and street vendors.

Food Processing

Food processing is the process of transforming raw ingredients into food. The process takes clean crops or animal products and uses them to produce long shelf life products that are highly marketable. Food processing has been in existence since pre-historic days. Slaughtering, fermenting and preserving foods with salt were the common methods used until canning began.

Modern food processing emerged in the late nineteenth century. Canning, freeze drying, artificial sweeteners and preservatives were introduced. In the twentieth century, convenience foods became popular. Frozen foods such as TV dinners became available in all supermarkets.

Examples of food processing industries and practices include the sugar industry, vegetable packing plants, meat packing plants, slaughterhouses, canneries and fish processing plants.
