Report Description

Declining volume sales in chocolate confectionery show the continuing need for brands to use innovation to encourage consumers back into eating. Messages should focus on trying new products, flavors, and formats. They could have the “treat” factor attached to them, as many people eat chocolate to treat themselves. Keeping prices low should also be a priority for brands, as the current economic scenario is not favoring the category.
