Confectionery Industry Workers

Confectionery workers operate machines to mix and cook candy ingredients, to form candy mixtures into shapes, and to package them for sale. Many different machines are used to make the molded, filled, pulled, whipped, and coated candies that Americans consume. Even when the candy making production line is automated, workers are needed to monitor the processing steps. However, some candy making jobs, especially in smaller candy factories, are still done by hand.
