Chocolate consumption in Brazil: a growing market
Brazilians love chocolate, even though annual per capita consumption is no more than 5.5 lbs. That's much less that the 26 lbs. that the Swiss consume! Nevertheless, the product is gaining ground with the emergence of a middle class with more disposable income for enjoying chocolate candy, bars and spreads. This is especially noticeable during religious holidays such as Easter or Christmas. Nowadays chocolate is a common gift at private celebrations, whether for Valentine’s Day, a birthday, a baptism or a birth. The trend is so strong that the production of chocolate in the country has jumped from 18% to 25 % in 2014.
Brazil: a major cocoa-producing country
Brazil has a link with chocolate because of its history as a cocoa-producing country. In fact, the country ranks fifth among the world's cocoa-producing countries, with 6% of the worldwide market. This isn't a recent accomplishment, but a characteristic rooted in the nation's agricultural industry. Back in the 1980s, Brazil was the world's no. 1 producer of cocoa. Then a disease caused by a fungus destroyed many of its cocoa trees, causing a drop in production of more than 75%. Today most cocoa production, 61%, is found in the Bahia region. Note that the variety of beans, forastero, gives the cocoa cacao a bitter taste with acidic notes.
