HISTORY• Used as a drink for nearly all of its history• Excavation by archaeologists in November 2007 revealed cultivation of cacao in Peurto Escondido from about 1100- 1400 BC.• Played a major role in the royal and religious events of ancient civilizations.
• Cacao beans also used as tax• First cocoa bean brought to Europe by Columbus• Europeans compartmentalized its use as sweets and desserts.• Industrial Revolution brought about major changes in the manufacturing process.
Breakthroughs• At the end of the 18th century, the first form of solid chocolate was invented in Turin by Doret. This chocolate was sold in large quantities from 1826 by Pierre Paul Caffarel• In 1819, F. L. Cailler opened the first Swiss chocolate factory.• In 1828, Dutchman Coenraad Johannes van Houten patented a method for extracting the fat from cocoa beans and making powdered cocoa and cocoa butter. Van Houten also developed the "so-called" Dutch process of treating chocolate with alkali to remove the bitter taste. This made it possible to form the modern chocolate bar.
• It is believed that the English company, J. S. Fry & Sons made the first chocolate for eating in 1847, followed in 1849 by the Cadbury brothers.• Daniel Peter, a Swiss candle maker, joined his father-in-laws chocolate business. In 1867, he began experimenting with milk as an ingredient. He brought his new product, milk chocolate, to market in 1875.• He was assisted in removing the water content from the milk to prevent mildewing by a neighbour, a baby food manufacturer named Henri Nestlé
• Rodolphe Lindt invented the process called conching, which involves heating and grinding the chocolate solids very finely to ensure that the liquid is evenly blended.• This enabled Milton Hershey to make chocolate even more popular by mass producing affordable chocolate bars.• In 1908, The Hershey Chocolate Company makes the first milk chocolate bar with almonds
• In 1912, The Whitman Company produced the boxed assortments called Whitmans Samplers. This is the first company to have a drawing of different chocolates located in one box• In 1914, L. S. Heath & Sons, Inc. makes the first Heath Bar in Robinson, Illinois.• In 1973, The Cadbury Company opens Chocolate World theme park in Bournville, England.
Facts and Figures• Much of the world’s cocoa comes from West Africa, which provides 70% of total output. The two main suppliers are the Cote d’lvoire and Ghana.• Most significant producer outside of this region is Indonesia.• In these countries the cocoa beans are typically grown on small family farms. Most of these are only two to three hectares in size. Each farm produces around one tonne of beans each year.
• Farmers grow around three million tonnes of cocoa beans each year. Of these, about 700,000 tonnes go to the USA. UK manufacturers import about 215,000 tonnes.• Global production is about 3.5 million tonnes, valuing annual production of the commodity at about USD 10 billion, roughly one-tenth of the value of sugar output. The small size makes it difficult for the market to absorb significant inflows and outflows from massive global investment funds.
• Chocolate needs to be distributed directly, unlike other FMCG products like soaps and detergents, which can be sold through a wholesale network. 90% of chocolate products are sold directly to retailers.
• Chocolate manufacturers recognise that the small growers are the industry’s lifeblood, and that our enjoyment of chocolate products depends on their wellbeing.• So, the industry is working with other organisations on the ground in West Africa on a series of programmes designed to improve the economic and social wellbeing of the cocoa farming villages and to ensure that small farmers secure a sustainable future.
International Trends• Research related the consumption of chocolates with several health benefits such as reduced stroke risk, cholesterol and blood pressure, among others.• Mars, Incorporated is proud to be the first global chocolate company to commit to fundamentally changing the way sustainable cocoa farming practices are advanced by aiming to certify its entire cocoa supply as being produced in a sustainable manner, by 2020.
• The widespread use of children in cocoa production is controversial not only because of the usual concerns about child labor and exploitation, but also because up to 12,000 of the 200,000 children working in Ivory Coast, the worlds biggest producer of cocoa, may be victims of human trafficking or slavery.• Gift giving: Like flower shops, these businesses often focus on themed chocolates and delivery
• Bulk Candy: Offering a wide assortment of candies of all types (including non-chocolate), these stores often charge by the pound...or half pound!• Premium or Unique: High-end, specialty items, imports from areas with historical processes• Ethical: Free trade or other, quality products produced, process and delivered in a certifiably ethical and/or environmental manner.
