Ferrero’s Francesco Tramontin makes a welcome return to the World Confectionery Conference

As a founding contributor to our World Confectionery Conference, Ferrero’s Francesco Tramontin is set to make a return appearance speaking at our return event in Brussels, Belgium, writes Neill Barston.

He presently serves as the company’s vice president, EU institutional relations and group public policy, working on core areas of the Italian-founded enterprise’s strategic direction with regards to managing its responsibilities to the sector and overall approach to major social and environmental matters impacting the industry.

The senior industry expert has a long-standing passion for delivering sustainability goals within the sector, and for the past year he has played a significant position amid the firm’s major portfolio of household brands including Rocher, Tic Tac and Kinder.

Francesco will be joined at our World Confectionery Conference by Thomas Chatenier, global president for Nutella, which remains one the group’s most prominent international exports product ranges.

They will be appearing alongside a dynamic range of businesses and key industry organisations for our key event of 12 September, including Caobisco, Cargill, Tony’s Chocolonely, Mintel, ZDS, FMCG Gurus, DT&G Ltd, Krüger & Salecker, Plamil Foods, Gelita, Corbion and the Rainforest Alliance among the mix.

Our early bird rates for the our event taking place at the NHow Hotel continue until 15 July, so make the most of the reduced entry (€230) this week at the following link, and become part of this year’s must-attend industry showcase that is set to place a renewed spotlight on sustainability and sector innovation right across our industry value chain.

We will be celebrating our 90th anniversary as a publication at the event, which also includes our annual awards, and a special QandA session dedicate to sustainability, as well as a closing drinks reception to make the most of networking opportunities on the day.

For his part, Belgian-based Francesco has previously gained experience with roles at Kraft Foods in Brussels and Mondelez International in Chicago, and has a unique insight into how the confectionery sector is raising its game to respond to global sustainability challenges. He has also played a notable role as a senior member of the Caobisco European confectionery trade association.

Notably, Francesco will be returning to speak at the event on themes of sustainability in terms of legislation linked to the EUDR and the company’s wider approach to engaging with the sector on a policy level, while addressing some of the key developments within the industry and business, as its major portfolio continues to expand.
