Milk Chocolate Price Trends for the First Half of 2023
In the Asian Pacific market, the prices of milk chocolate inclined consistently in the first two quarters of 2023 as the market sentiments were supported by a rise in the cost of feedstock materials. This rise in the prices was also a direct consequence of the short supply of cocoa. The reason for the lower production rates was the extreme weather conditions, such as El Nino, which resulted in a hotter and drier climate than usual in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean.
The global markets of milk chocolate also enjoyed inflation in the global food markets, which were highly influenced by the Russia-Ukraine crisis and high rates of consumption of sugar, cocoa, butter, and chocolate, especially in Europe. While the supply from a majority of exporting nations, such as India, Thailand, and Mainland China, accelerated the rise in the price trends of milk chocolate.
According to Procurement Resource, the price of Milk Chocolate is estimated to rise in the upcoming quarters as the demand from the consumer sector will likely grow while the rates of production continue to suffer.

To produce Milk Chocolate, cocoa liquor is first derived from the cocoa nibs of the cocoa beans. Cocoa nibs are roasted and ground to a very fine, liquid mass, the cocoa liquor, which is one of the main ingredients of chocolate. Then, cocoa liquor is mixed with cocoa butter, sugar, and milk powder to form a fine chocolate powder which is finally conched in a conching press. The obtained product is caramelised to produce Milk Chocolate.
