Billions of candy bars and sticks of gum. Billions of dollars. Billions of calories. Anyway you look at it, candy is big business. From the U.S. to India, international giants such as Mars Inc., Cadbury, Nestlé, and Kraft dominate the industry but there is still room for smaller, regional players like South Africa's Tiger Brands and China's Hsu Fu Chi International, each of which is its country's No. 1 candymaker.
