Evolution of the market: 2002-2012

25 Oct
  • Consumption prices constantly rising

Between 2002 and 2011, households’ consumption of chocolate confectionery rose up by 16.6% (volume). This is more important in value (+41.3%). This is due to consumption prices which have not stopped increasing: +20% during the last decade, faster than the inflation rate. Indeed, raw materials prices regularly rose up during that period, especially for Cocoa from Ivory Coast.

  • French output of chocolate and confectionery

Since 2004, production has been kept on decreasing until 2010, year when growth started again.

Economic crisis will have relatively affected the chocolate confectionery market. Sales and production conditions have been tougher during the last decade, but this market managed very well after this period of global crisis.
