Summary
The report outlines the key consumer and innovation trends currently impacting the chocolate, confectionery, and desserts sector. Trends include clean confectionery, functionality, vegan-friendly confectionery, provenance, and experiential confectionery.

The report "Top Trends in Chocolate, Confectionery and Desserts 2018", has identified five innovation trends within chocolate, confectionery, and desserts -

- Functionality: Demand for greater functionality is growing as health-conscious consumers seek out enriched and fortified confectionery products that offer tangible health benefits for their personal wellbeing.
- Vegan-friendly: Adjusting the formulation of products to better meet niche dietary requirements will ensure that brands not only appeal to vegans but also to flexitarians and consumers who associate veganism with a healthy lifestyle.
