Next week I will be lecturing in this interesting seminar organized by the German school ZDS, in Solingen. I am honoured to take part once again in this type of training, which I enjoy a lot. I hope I will be able to share the know how i have about chewing gum and also learn from the other elcturers and participants.

The Course will cover many different aspects of the production, looking at ingredients, machinery, processes, etc. and includes a hands-on experience which participants in previous editions rated as extremely useful.

Next 6th November I will be presenting one more year during the “Sugar Confectionery Course” organized by Leatherhead Food Research. This course takes place from 4th until 6th November in Leatherhead (near London, UK).

Like almost every year since 1998, I will talk about chewing gum technology and, most important, take the questions from the audience and discuss any issue around the chewing gum industry that is of interest. I always find this experience very enjoyable.

I hope to see you some of you there!

Extract from their web-site (which you can access clicking the link above)

This essential three-day course provides a practical knowledge of the basic principles in the diverse area of sugar confectionery manufacture. You will benefit from the knowledge of industry experts, acquiring the ability to predict the effects of formulation changes and process modifications on products and apply that knowledge in troubleshooting situations. 

Sugar Confectionery Production encourages interaction and includes several hands-on practical sessions as a key part of the course where delegates will prepare confectionery products and learn to characterise them. Designed to cover all aspects of confectionery production, this well-established course will benefit personnel from different backgrounds wishing to gain or improve their knowledge of confectionery systems.”

Participants come from all around the world. You can find out more in

The second one will be in Leatherhead, United Kingdom, on 8th November. Here there is also a Sugar Confectionery Course and I will take care of the chewing gum presentation. The web is

I have been lecturing in both places for more than 10 years and I must say that it is one of the most enjoyable moments of the year for me. I always find interesting to exchange ideas and experiences with other people
