According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Organic Cocoa Market is accounted for $8.7 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $12.5 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. Organic chocolate is made from ingredients that are organically farmed on a certified organic farm. In the food and beverage business, cocoa is one of the most commonly utilized raw ingredients. It contains a lot of polyphenol, a type of antioxidant that lowers blood pressure and fights inflammation. The only ingredient used to make dark chocolate is cocoa. Chocolate lowers the risk of heart disease and offers some nourishment essential to the body's growth and development. It must be produced or farmed without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or genetically engineered organisms.

According to ITC Trade Map, EU-28 imported an estimated 2.0 million tonnes of cocoa beans in 2020. European Commission data show that total EU-28 imports of organic cocoa beans amounted to 76,000 tonnes that year, representing 3.9% of total cocoa bean imports.

Market Dynamics:


Consumer preference towards speciality and premium chocolates

Specialty and premium confectioneries have grown in popularity as consumers have more money to spend on high-end goods during the past few years. The millennial generation's preference for high-end products is expected to continue to fuel market growth.


Effects of excessive cocoa consumption

Caffeine side effects, such as anxiousness, increased urination, insomnia, and a rapid heartbeat, may be brought on by excessive consumption. Because it includes heavy metals and caffeine, consuming chocolate in excessive quantities may be dangerous. Both allergic skin responses and migraines may be brought on by cocoa. Additionally, it may result in gas, constipation, nausea, and stomach discomfort. These are the things preventing the market from expanding.


Increasing demand for organic cocoa products

To improve the whole dining experience, chefs and other culinary experts are experimenting with organic cocoa's adaptability and developing new flavor combinations. The growing use of organic cocoa products in culinary and food service applications offers manufacturers and suppliers the chance to grow their clientele and forge alliances with significant players in the food service sector.


High Product Cost

The cost of organically produced cocoa is a significant issue for the chocolate confectionery, dessert, and bread industries, and the high price is expected to impede market expansion. Farmers' lack of knowledge about organic farming techniques typically results in limited production, raising the final price of chocolate grown organically. However, it is anticipated that further attempts to increase organic production by promoting modern agricultural techniques will aid in addressing the industry's price concerns.

Covid-19 Impact:

The decrease in consumer demands for retail goods such cocoa powder, beverages, and chocolates made it difficult for producers to schedule production and distribution. Therefore, it is evident that demand increased during COVID-19. Due to an increase in illnesses and decreased economic activity, the market need will expand more than expected in the near future. However, it cannot be denied that the pandemic's spread resulted in lockdowns, supply chain interruptions, and issues with product availability.

The butter services segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The butter services segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period.

In addition to monounsaturated oleic acid, organic cocoa butter also contains unsaturated fats that are beneficial for the skin and hair.

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period, owing to the growing population size of individuals consuming cocoa products. Consumers are looking for healthier alternatives across all food aisles. The market's expansion is also considerably fuelled by the rising appeal of specialty and artisanal chocolates.
