Class code 2041 is used for employees that work in a chocolate or confectionery manufacturing facility. This code includes workers who assist in the making and wrapping of a variety of candy, both chocolate and non chocolate, such as taffy, candy bars, marzipan, and jellybeans. Whether work is done entirely by hand, or using mass production equipment and machinery, it is still included. Job scope may also include cooking or roasting, blending of ingredients, crushing, melting, and packaging. Those using equipment, such as roasting machines, cooling equipment, mixers, cooking containers, and packaging equipment are also included.

Chewing gum manufacturers are also within this class code, though their ingredients and processes will vary. Examples of included gum products are stick gum, candy coated gum, and liquid center gum. Products that are considered breakfast bars, energy bars, diet bars, low carbohydrate bars, or meal replacement bars are excluded.
