Industrial chocolate is a product from cocoa liquor or paste that undergoes a process termed coaching where the cocoa is added with butter along with other ingredients like sugar and powdered milk. Different applications of industrial chocolate formulate the mixture differently. These type of chocolate are usually used in-house by vertically integrated manufacturers or supplied to the third parties in order to create finished chocolate. Industrial chocolate can be used in producing chocolate confectionery, ice cream and other types of beverages and bakery items. The main users of industrial chocolate are food service providers and bakery or confectionery manufacturers. The industrial chocolate manufacturing is done in bulk in order to meet heavy demand of chocolate related items in the market. Industrial chocolate manufacturers also use organic chocolates that offer variety of flavors and textures that are finally certified by organizations like ECOCERT and Certisys.

Industrial chocolate has been noted to receive soaring growth in the global market and has several driving factors that are increasing its acceptance in the market. Clearly, the latest demand in organic and sugar-free chocolates are aiding the growth of this market. Due to the recent change in the lifestyle and consumption pattern, vendors in the market are constantly innovating in terms of trendy chocolate manufacturing. Moreover, there has been a huge demand of snack bars in chocolate flavors that are attracting the youngsters globally. Although, it is highly in demand, individuals are looking for healthy alternatives to chocolate products in the market. Additionally, another challenge that the industrial chocolate manufacturers face is the volatility in the price of cocoa. Good quality of cocoa is a major concern for companies like Ferrero and Cadbury and they are tying up with good agricultural experts that can help in the yield of gourmet cocoa. Health awareness is a global concern for people especially who are obese and suffer from health disease like diabetes among others. Furthermore, the addition of sweetener instead of sugar is a major concern for the chocolate manufacturers as the quality of sweetener needs to be of high quality and give a taste that replaces that of sugar.

On the basis of applications, the industrial chocolate can be further bifurcated into confectionery products, biscuits and bakery products, dairy and desserts, ice cream and frozen items and cereals.
