India: a colossal market still in its infancy
If you’ve ever eaten in an Indian restaurant and enjoyed this spicy and refined cuisine, you know that chocolate is not really on the dessert menu. The reason is simple: chocolate is not part of Indian gastronomy. According to a study conducted by the French Chamber of Industry and Commerce in India, over half of the population, which now stands at 1.7 billion, has never tried chocolate! Before the 1990s, it was difficult to find chocolate products, even though later on, major commercial groups, aware of market potential in the land of Mahatma Gandhi, took matters in hand.
A rapidly-rising consumption per person
Like in Asia, Indians are beginning to appreciate chocolate. Recent data shows a yearly growth of 20% in this market. Consumption has reached 27 grams per person but this number is skewed by the impressive population of India. In absolute terms, only a small increase per individual is required for many more tons more of chocolate to be consumed. Today, commercial chocolate is easily found and chocolate cakes and brownies are often served during birthday dinners. But this chocolate doesn’t have the same qualities as what you can find in Europe.
Chocolate which is sweeter and more spiced
Agribusiness multinationals and artisan chocolate makers have adapted their recipes in order to win over the Indian palate. It is obvious that spices are omnipresent in the local cuisine. As for sweetness, a very high level is demanded, which explains the difficulties encountered in the commercialization of bitter dark chocolate. If you would like to offer more refined Belgian chocolate, consider these recommendations, which you can have delivered directly to you, your family, friends and colleagues, thanks to Planète Chocolat.
