The organic and clean label movement has swept the food and beverage industry as a whole. The organic and pure label trend impacts dark chocolate manufacturers, increasing demand for premium and organic ingredients. Manufacturers are also adding natural sweeteners like stevia and coconut sugar to appeal to a consumer base concerned about their food choices.

COVID-19 Impact on Dark Chocolate Industry
COVID-19 had a positive impact on the chocolate market when it first appeared in 2020. During the lockdown, chocolate consumption at home increased dramatically. Chocolates, like other consumables, were purchased in bulk, resulting in higher volume sales through supermarkets and hypermarkets. However, after relaxing limitations in both importing and exporting countries, the market became more stable.
