Your market of opportunity awaits

The gums and jellies market is packed with exciting opportunities. With endless options for different flavors, sugar content (or lack of it) and satisfying the explosive demand for nutraceuticals (active candies containing vitamins and supplements), there’s plenty of room to differentiate yourself through introducing new products.

Manufacturing gums and jellies isn’t difficult when you have the right knowledge, equipment and backup. And Tanis supplies all of these!

Before investing in a production line and all the other things to manufacture and market, you need to get to know your (potential) business. That’s why the Tanis Academy has devised a series of webinars for bringing you up-to-speed on ingredients, processing and going into the active candies market.

  • Webinar 1

    Ingredient and recipe knowledge

    This basic course covers all you need to know about the main ingredients – sugar, syrup, gelling agents, additives – and how they behave during processing. See how gummies and jellies are made on a small scale in the laboratory. Find out what can go wrong and learn about testing the quality of finished products.

  • Webinar 2

    Equipment knowledge

    This course provides all the information you need for manufacturing gums and jellies. We’ll take you through every part of the process, including the possible variations, as you learn about kitchens, depositors, conditioning rooms and finishing equipment.
    You’ll also get up-to-speed on different types of cookers and the differences between starch and non-starch moulding. Everything will be illustrated through helpful animations and actual production footage.

  • Webinar 3

    Adding active ingredients

    This course is all about getting into the functional candies market. You’ll learn about the active candies market itself, and how this differs from conventional candy. On a practical level, we’ll explain the importance of recipe development, with clear examples of why you can´t just add functional ingredients without adjusting the process. Everything will be illustrated through demonstrations. For example, you’ll see how adding just a tiny amount of elderberry extract will turn your candy-mass purple, making it almost (but not completely!) impossible to create non-purple candies that contain elderberry.

Registration for the entire 3-webinar session costs €1,299 per attendee. 
Please note, for confidentiality reasons, each registration may only be activated via a single device and the webinar is a live-only event. No playback recording will be available. We advise you to take notes during the session.

Our dedicated team of food technologists will answer these questions live to the entire audience. However, it is important to be aware that these questions, and the responses, will also be seen and heard by other attendees.
