Cocoa consumption in Europe

In Europe, consumption is on average 7 kg of chocolate per person per year. Switzerland holds the world record with 10 kg per year per person. In Europe, consumption is higher in the North and Alpine and lowest in the South. The first consumer country Switzerland (although a substantial portion, estimated at 20%, is related to tourism) with 10.05 kg per year per capita, followed by the United Kingdom, Germany, and Belgium.

Spain, Portugal, Slovenia and Poland (with 840 g per year per capita) are the most vulnerable consumers. In comparison, China consumed 120 g of chocolate per year per capita and the United States 5.45 kg. 97% of the French consume chocolate at least once per week, which corresponds roughly to the European average 6.7 kg of chocolate per capita per year.

In Europe, consumption is expected to grow 1.7 percent annually to reach 1.4 million tonnes. Europe will likely remain the region that consumes the most cocoa, with 40 percent of total consumption in 2010.

In the EU, chocolate and cocoa products are currently regulated by Directive 2000 which allows replacing cocoa butter with cheaper substitutes up to 5 percent of the total points of the finished product.

According to this directive, chocolate containing vegetable oils other than cocoa butter may be sold in the EU provided that the fact is stated on the label. Member states have until August 2003 to enact national legislation implementing this Directive.
