MISSION: The National Confectioners Association advances, protects and promotes the confectionery industry.

Founded in 1884 in Chicago by representatives of 69 confectionery manufacturing firms, the National Confectioners Association is one of the oldest, most respected trade associations in the world.

Over the years, the association has endeavored to provide the kind of vigorous leadership necessary for its members, which include domestic and international confectionery manufacturers and suppliers to the industry, to meet the increasingly complex challenges and problems that have confronted the industry.

Today, NCA is the major association representing the entire confectionery industry, offering education and leadership in manufacturing, technical research, public relations, retailing practices, government relations, and statistical analyses.

As NCA grows, the association continues to provide those services that enable members to meet the wide range of ever-changing business challenges in the years ahead and improve the climate for the healthy growth of confectionery sales.
