kettle awards logoEstablished in 1946 by Candy Industry's founder and publisher, Don Gussow, the Kettle Award represents the highest recognition an individual working within the U.S. confectionery industry can attain.

It is, as Gussow explained to readers, "recognition of the contribution for 'great or good' of the industry, not only on the part of the person selected for the distinction, but of every member of the confectionery field who has devoted himself in whatever measure to make the business of candy making and selling a more profitable and happier one."

Each year, nominees – an honor all to itself – are selected by an esteemed group of committee members representing the leading suppliers within the confectionery industry. The nominees' accomplishments are then highlighted in the magazine for several issues, with readers having the opportunity to cast their ballots for the eventual recipient of the award.

Appropriately, the nominees are feted at a reception during the U.S. industry's largest confectionery exposition, All Candy Expo. Then, in an "Oscar-like ceremony," the eventual recipient is presented with – what else – a symbolic copper kettle for his or her contributions.

During the past 63 years – beginning with the first winner, Russell Stover – members of Candy Industry's Kettle Committee have gleaned the best and brightest for the industry's crowning achievement. This supplement honors all those who have been able to hold the copper kettle high.
