Somewhat low consumption
Lebanon is not a country that consumes a lot of chocolate. According to the country's customs agency, in 2014, Lebanon imported 18,200 tons of cocoa, part of which was processed in order to be exported throughout the Middle East, with 40% headed toward the Gulf countries. In the end, the average annual consumption is around 2.7 kg per capita. In terms of taste, chocolatiers have noted that children prefer more sweetness and less cocoa, while adults choose milk chocolate pralines. What's funny is that in East Beirut tastes are opposite: 75% of purchases are of dark chocolate, which has a more bitter flavor.
Chocolate mostly during major events
In Lebanon, people also prefer to consume chocolate in individually wrapped portions rather than bars. This fact is related to the means of consumption, since chocolate is not usually eaten except when it is given as a gift. The Easter season, for example, represents up to 10% of annual sales. Another seasonal peak takes place around Christmas for the holiday season. Weddings, religious holidays or graduations are some of the events where chocolate is an integral part of the festivities.
