Report Summary

“In terms of chocolate consumption, the COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged conflicting behaviors. While some consumers have eaten more chocolate due to its positive effects on mental health, others have reduced consumption to avoid its negative impacts on physical health (eg weight gain). This has brought opportunities for chocolates that provide functional benefits, especially products that promise to regulate the mood and help relax and strengthen the immune system. Brands and companies, however, need to bear in mind the fact that the post-pandemic scenario is one of financial difficulties, which means that consumers will make more rational purchasing decisions and will be more sensitive to price.”
– Laura Menegon, Food and Drinks Analyst
