Demand for organic, vegan, sugar-free, and gluten-free chocolates: a key market trend
With growing awareness of the negative effects of synthetic products on health and the environment, most health-conscious and informed consumers have started using organic products. This also applies to the premium chocolate sector. The market is witnessing an increase in demand for artisan chocolates, organic chocolates, sugar-free and gluten-free vegan chocolates to name a few. In 2014, the US accounted for 43% and Germany for 13% of the retail sales of organic food products globally.
“With the current changes in the preferences of end-consumers, players like Artisan Confections Company, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Green & Black’s, Sjaak's Organic Chocolates, and others are coming up with more varieties in organic chocolates to gain health-cautious consumers,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for food research.
EMEA will be the major revenue contributor to the premium chocolate market throughout the forecast period. Though the region will witness a decrease in its market shares in the coming years, it will continue to dominate the market during the forecast period. APAC is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period.
