“Companies are using healthier and higher-quality ingredients, as demand for differentiated products and consumer claims increases,” says Ubiracy Fonsêca, president of ABICAB. “Investments in new lines and the rebirth of the cocoa industry, with a sustainable production that preserves our forests, also contribute to a portfolio of quality products and sophistication, as well as genuinely Brazilian flavors that will be presented at the ISM.”
