Technical Papers Catalog – Conference Proceedings

The technical papers catalog provides access to our database of all technical papers presented during each PMCA annual conference beginning with the first held in 1947. This is a unique collection of more than 1,000 papers on various topics related to pertinent confectionery industry topics. Each of the papers listed was subject to an in-depth review by the PMCA technical program committee prior to being finalized and published. The database can be searched online by year or by keyword. A hard-copy book of the complete proceedings from any specific year, or a CD containing a compilation of several years can be purchased by contacting the PMCA office.
