World Chocolate Day occurs globally on July 7th each year, with some suggesting this marks the anniversary of the introduction of chocolate to Europe in 1550. It’s a day for chocolate lovers around the world to celebrate and indulge in their favorite treat. And whilst the worldwide love for chocolate continues to be unwavering, consumer preferences are changing when it comes to chocolatey treats. At ofi, we see a shift towards healthier confectionery as well as good for the planet options. Consumers are seeking out products that are keto, low-sugar, organic, high in fiber and protein, and contain lower salt. However, it’s plant-based chocolate and confectionary which continues to grow in popularity.
To celebrate the occasion of World Chocolate Day, we delve deeper into these changing tastes and how we’re offering solutions that deliver on these, alongside the same great quality and flavor you’d expect in your favorite ofi products.
