Chocolate is typically a sweet preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds that is roasted and grounded, generally flavored with vanilla. Chocolate is extremely popular and widely consumed across the globe. Chocolate is classified on the basis of the amount of cocoa present in the chocolate.

The rising disposable income of Asia Pacific consumers, especially in countries such as Japan, China, India, and South Korea has brought down the social status of chocolate from a luxury food item to an everyday commodity. This has impacted the chocolate market positively. The inexpensive, local brands of chocolate as well as the premium, international brands of chocolate are popular among consumers, thus driving the market.

Chocolate as functional foods, is a growing trend among people, since they are perceived as stress-relieving eatables, having high nutritional value. However, the fluctuating prices or instability of raw materials required in the manufacturing of chocolate, such as cocoa, act as a challenge for the manufacturers of chocolate. The unstable supply of cocoa is due to heavy reliance on West African countries and the political instability in the major cocoa producing regions.
