Snack industry professionals have already marked the calendars in preparation for the most convincing duo in the sweet sector - ISM and ProSweets Cologne scheduled from February 2nd to 5th, 2025 in Koelnmesse. Last year, the fair introduced an extended event programme, allowing visitors to explore the full range of industry offerings and forge valuable business connections.

ISM Cologne 2025 will open endless possibilities for visitors to dive into various offerings across core categories like chocolate, sugar confectionery, biscuits, snack foods, and the ever-evolving trends in natural and breakfast snacks, not to mention the indulgent world of ice cream. Over the four-day event, Messe Cologne will become an international hub, welcoming trade professionals from over 140 countries, including the Netherlands, Spain, Ukraine, Japan, and Canada

Yet, ISM 2025 goes beyond indulgence. Its robust supporting program fosters knowledge sharing and informed decision-making. The fairgrounds provide extensive space for innovation, networking, and entertainment, evident from the Lab5 located in Hall 5.2 during the last event edition. The curated product showcase will continue demonstrating the sustainability mega-trend, illuminating responsible ingredient production and packaging solutions.
