Talking TRMarketplace: Jean Torchia, International Director, Carambar & Co

By Luke Barras-hill |

Confectionery manufacturer Carambar & Co has identified the TRMarketplace digital networking and conference event as a key opportunity to expose well-established domestic brands to travel retail.

The French company and TRMarketplace brand hub owner boasts a portfolio containing the likes of the eponymous Carambar, Poulain, Vichy, Malabar, Terry’s and Suchard.


“Travel retail is a new opportunity to expand our brands to shoppers and consumers,” commented Jean Torchia, International Director, Carambar & Co.

“For us, we are sizing this opportunity in the recovery. We know that local consumers of these brands are sometimes stocking these products when they go abroad. TRMarketplace is a way for us to give visibility to our brands and explain that these can be found in travel retail.”

Torchia adds that TRMarketplace’s comprehensive educational insights programme will allow Carambar & Co the chance to improve its understanding of the market in order to leverage associated business opportunities.

TRMarketplace is available for all categories and will allow each supplier/brand access to a dedicated ‘brand hub’, where they can showcase their respective product portfolios.

Brands can upload all relevant documentation for visitors to browse and download (access restricted). With a fixed price to exhibit of GBP£4,495 (ex VAT) – for every company regardless of size – TRBusiness and Bluedog Productions believe that this opportunity is accessible to all.
