Chocolates are the sugary food which is consumed for the pleasure and indulgence. Chocolates are high in fat and energy, especially shared at the celebrations and occasions.The flavor of chocolate comes from cocoa.Chocolate is made from cocoa beans which are derived from the cacao tree, a tropical rainforest plant. The 30-50 seeds (sometimes called beans) contained within each pod are the key ingredients from which chocolate is made. The seeds are harvested, fermented and dried or roasted to enhance their aroma, before being heated and mixed with other ingredients (e.g. sugar, milk, cocoa butter) to make chocolate. These typically include cocoa or cocoa liquor (non-alcoholic), milk and/or milk solids, sugar and cocoa butter (or vegetable fats).


Types of chocolates

There are many different types of chocolate, which can be broadly classified as whitechocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, depending on the relative proportions of cocoa and milk they contain. Another means of classifying chocolate is as either block or compound chocolate.

Nutrition Facts for Cocoa and Chocolate

Cocoa and chocolate contain a large amount of antioxidants (flavinoids). Cocoa and dark chocolate may keep high blood pressure down and reduce the blood's ability to clot, thus the risk of stroke and heart attacks may be reduced. The darker chocolate with the most concentrated cocoa will be the most beneficial.

Market structure and growth

The chocolates market in India is estimated at around 45,000 tonnes valued at approximately Rs 15.0 bn. The counter market is estimated at about Rs 5 to 7 bn and the rest is made up of chocolate bars. Chocolates make up less than a fourth of the sweet-tooth products including sugar-boiled confectionery, mints and chewing gums. Sugar confectionery is by far the largest segment. 

The demand for chocolates in India has been on the upswing in keeping with the economic boom leading to a rise in consumer spending. While the big players like Cadbury and Nestle are marching ahead, smaller, local and neighborhood chocolate makers are expanding their reach and going national

Sweet World considers its business distinctly linked to 'footfalls at malls claiming to sell happiness'. Sweet World has already set up 40 outlets across the country. It had launched its operation in 2002 from Mumbai. It sells only imported varieties of sweets and candies, mostly from Europe. Small players, it is claimed, are benefiting from intensive advertising by majors, such as Cadbury and Nestle.

Cadbury has actually become the generic name for chocolates in India. Cadbury with its Dairy Milk, Five Star, Milk Treat, Eclairs, Golden, is ruling the roost. It proposed to introduce a host of its global offerings like Flake, Timeout, Wispa, Caramel, Fuse and Cherry Ripe into the Indian market. Cadbury dominates the chocolate segment with a share of around 60%. Its Dairy Milk brand alone accounting for 30%. Perk and Five Star account for another 20%. Cadbury derives 76% of its revenues from chocolates and other confectionery sales.  In the domestic market, Nestle India has been deriving its revenues from five product baskets: coffee; milk products; condensed milk and ready mixes ;coffee creamer/dairy whitener; foods for infants; chocolates/confectionery and malted beverages (Milo, Kitkat, Charge, Munch, Polo); and food products .Nestles' chocolate portfolio of Kitkat, Munch and Charge along other confectionery products make up for nearly 27% of its turnover. Campco, a significant player, established a chocolate manufacturing factory adopting foreign technical collaboration in chocolate making. The factory has the capacity to produce 8800 tonnes of output a year. Campco had a technical tie-up with Nestle (India) Ltd. for diversifying product brands. It has been producing a variety of products
