Global Chocolate Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by considerable growth in the food and beverages sector. This can be accredited to the inflating disposable income levels of the masses and their shifting dietary preferences, which has contributed to a rise in the consumption of ready-to-eat bakery and confectionery products, wherein chocolate is commonly utilized as an indispensable ingredient. The market is further driven by the increasing awareness regarding the numerous health benefits associated with dark chocolates. These variants comprise soluble fibers and bioactive compounds while being a rich source of antioxidants.
