Sweet revolution

CONNECT - Development Association for 3D Jellies 

The successful launch event took place on October 28, 2020. A recording is available for all fans of real 3D jellies.

In a globally unique project, called CONNECT, nine well-known companies of the confectionery industry have come together and developed an industrial production process for real 3D jellies. Now it is possible to design gummy bears and jelly babies with a beautiful backside. That's revolutionary!

We know fruit gums and jellies in many different shapes. But they all have at least one flat side or an unpleasant “dosing dot”. With this worldwide new process of CONNECT, real three-dimensional figures can be produced. Real three-dimensional figures that always show their best side, no matter how you turn them.

The CONNECT-Team has developed an innovative product concept, researched the necessary raw material properties, worked out recipes, designed shapes, and built the right production facilities. Always scientifically accompanied in order to achieve well-founded market relevance for the confectionery industry.

The unique strength of the CONNECT-Team lies in the bundling of the technical competence of nine companies in order to support the confectionery manufacturers as best as possible with expertise and passion. The CONNECT developments focus on new types of confectionery with enjoyment, surprise and fun for consumers.

The innovative CONNECT 3D jellies were presented globally in four live launch events at the end of October. Around 750 interested people from the international confectionery industry followed. The focus was on the manufacturing process and the integration of the process into confectionery production. The response is enormous, there are already numerous project inquiries from Japan to Mexico.
