The total value of the chocolate market in the United Kingdom (UK) is reputed to be £3.6bn in 2010, according to an April 21st 2011 article in Marketing Week titled "Appetite for indulgence will sweeten bitter pill.”

After that note, information on the UK chocolate market gets complicated, particularly when it comes to who owns whom and who manufactures which chocolate bar.

For example, the UK organic chocolate market is reputed to be the largest in the European Union.  Green and Black’s, which was created in 1991 and acquired by Cadbury in 2005, claims to be the UK’s top organic chocolate market.  Cadbury has been making chocolate since 1824, when John Cadbury opened his first shop.

Kraft Foods acquired Cadbury in early 2010.  Kraft launched Milka in the UK, and Milka competes with Cadbury’s Dairy Milk, its sister brand first launched in 1905 and allegedly still the market leader in the UK today.

Swiss-based Nestle, known for its Kit-Kat bar, and Mars, a privately owned company in the United States famous for its Snickers bar, also dominate the UK chocolate market.  Products by other chocolate manufacturers are available in the UK as well, including the United States brand, Hershey, maker of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Nutella, the brand name for the hazelnut-flavored spread made by the Italian company, Ferrero.

The good news is that, if your only concern is the quality of the chocolate, you have a variety of chocolates from which to choose.  Britain truly is a country of chocolate lovers, regardless of manufacturer.  People in the UK are among the top chocolate consumers in the world.

The UK chocolate market is the biggest in all European market. People in the United Kingdom consume more chocolate then in any other Country. In Britain, older people consume more chocolate and confectionery than children. A report ascertained that people over 55 years of age in the United Kingdom consume chocolate worth 700 pounds every year. Twenty-one per cent of the total chocolate and confectionery sold in Britain is consumed by people above the age of 55.

Since, the luxury brands of chocolates have been introduced in the chocolate market of Britain, older people has become the main target audience in the chocolate market. The overall penetration of chocolate is also very high, with chocolate bars being made available every where you go. Both consumption and spending patterns of people in UK result in the chocolate market hype.

You are right but all those companies did not start selling organic chocolate, they started selling processed chocolate based on milk derivatives or whey but at this moment organic chocolate is gaining ground and demand because in these times we seek to take care of the sugar and caffeine that they make ravages the body in the long run. the only good example of an organic chocolate company that I know

I love sweets and I can't imagine my life without them, but after I moved to Singapore, I constantly have problems with sweets, because I can't find something that I really like. My friend recommended me to order dark chocolate tart singapore. I had high hopes, and surprisingly they came true. It's very tasty, I highly recommend.
