An emerging market
As in all of Latin America, chocolate is obviously a beloved food in Uruguay. Historically, cocoa beans have been used in cooking since the Pre-Columbian times of the Maya and Aztecs. They were consumed in the form of chocolate-based drinks which were so bitter that arriving European colonists had to add sugar. Uruguay is not a cocoa-producing country the way its neighbors on the continent, Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia are. In terms of the consumer market, demand remains limited, However, market research by large agri-food groups tends to show that this will change in the future.
Focus on a Latin specialty: Alfajores
As its name indicates, this dish beloved in Uruguay originated in Arab cuisine and was imported to Spain during periods of conquest. These same Spaniards would then pass on their love for the dessert to South America. Today, Alfajores are everywhere. They are made up of two cookies joined by a sugary filling of fruit jam, milk or chocolate mousse. They are then sprinkled with sugar or topped with chocolate glaze. It's a clear symbol of the love Uruguayans have for chocolate cookies.
