Delivering chocolate to Sri Lanka

Your favorite online boutique specializing in making artisanal chocolate has come to your rescue by providing a chocolate delivery service to Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka, more tea than cocoa
Although Sri Lanka is the largest tea producer in the world, cocoa cultivation was actually first, introduced by Spanish colonists looking for new places that had the ideal conditions for cultivating the Forastero variety of cocoa bean. They found new areas for European expansion and the bean was first grown in the Philippines, then in in the Dutch East Indies and finally in Sri Lanka. The activity began twice: in 1834 and then in 1880. In comparison, tea growing only began in 1867 when it was introduced by a British planter. Just like Vietnam and the Philippines, Sri Lanka is currently relaunching its cocoa industry in order to profit from the economic opportunities provided by the rapid growth of chocolate consumption in Asia, especially in China.
Local consumption that is restrained despite everything
The level of cocoa bean production in Sri Lanka still remains limited and chocolate consumption is almost nonexistent, just like in its giant neighbor, India. You just have to visit a restaurant specializing in Indian or Sri Lankan food to realize that the dessert menu is lacking in desserts made from chocolate. That doesn't prevent artisanal chocolate makers from trying to break into the local market. In any case, it's a reason to offer a box of Belgian chocolates to friends who live there or to the Sri Lankans who welcomed you during your trip. Now you can take advantage of the chocolate delivery service to Sri Lanka set up by Planète Chocolat, whose teams are able to send your box of chocolate or assortment of pralines to Colombo, Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia, Moratuwa, Jaffna or Negombo.
