Have Belgian chocolates delivered to Canada
Quebec, a major player in the chocolate industry
According to recent data, each year Canadians consume an average of more than 5 kg of chocolate. It’s also worth noting that consumption of chocolate based drinks reached around 4.2 liters per person, or 6% of the global consumption of milk. In terms of production, the largest site is in Quebec. The Barry Callebaut plant in Saint-Hyacinthe produces 175,000 metric tons of chocolate per year, making it the largest in the whole of North America. Chocolate is the province's second largest export product, of which 80% is directed towards the United States. You should also know that Quebec , which has direct links with the France dating back to the colonial era, is home to more than 120 artisan chocolatiers.
The arrival of fair trade chocolate
The rise of the concept of sustainable development and fair compensation of small local producers of cocoa beans has allowed fair trade products to enter the market. In Canada between 2005 and 2008, the marketing of such products exploded, with a 550% increase. The main countries that use the fair trade chocolate label are the Dominican Republic, Ghana, Peru, and Bolivia. Nowadays fair trade chocolate is especially popular at Easter, which is the peak consumption time for chocolate in Canada.
