By connecting with other companies in the confectionery industry, our aim is to drive innovation in these markets through interaction at virtual and physical conferences, podcasts and more.

“In addition, the PCMA enables Lecico to add its unique voice to several committees across marketing, education and learning, production and research. As experts in lecithin and phospholipid production and manufacturing, we feel we can add tremendous value in this area to the association.”
