Cloetta drives category projects in sugar confectionery, chocolate, pastilles and chewing gum. The category projects combines consumer demands and needs with the possibilities in the existing production structure and the innovation activities being carried out in the Group.
To systematically gather consumer feedback, Cloetta uses a consumer panel that regularly provides feedback on ideas on Internet after receiving product samples to their homes. Without approval by the consumer panel, the product will not be released on the market.
