Competition is getting ever fiercer in our industry, and players like the Barry Callebaut Brand are aiming to keep brands on their toes. Recently, the global confectionery manufacturer announced the launch of the Indulgence Playbook, a guide for North American food manufacturers on competing within the indulgence market, and its latest chocolate innovation, Caramel Aura.
“We are so excited to reveal our latest caramel product, Carmel Aura, and our industry resource, the Indulgence Playbook,” said Laura Bergan, Director of Barry Callebaut Brand. “Through consumer research, we created the Indulgence Playbook with tactics and methods to help brands succeed in evolving consumer tastes and meet the needs of the premium indulgence market.

With the growth of the premium category in the last year, indulgence has become a key driver in the market. According to the release, indulgence is a premium experience of taste and comfort, and consumers want products with a clear added value.
