Chocolate manufacturers have had to respond to the effects of the recession in order to maintain performance. As a result, the retail value of sales in both RoI and NI markets increased marginally in 2009. According to trade sources, consumers perceive chocolate to be an affordable luxury in a depressed economy.
In spite of this, one major hurdle remains for the foreseeable future: the exchange rate. The diminished value of Sterling is lowering the profit margins of chocolate manufacturers in RoI who wish to export to UK markets.
