Single-Origin Chocolate: The Future of Premium Chocolate Confectionery Foretold

Nestlé might not be the first brand you turn to when you’re on the hunt for fine chocolate – it certainly isn’t for me – but, as the appetite for luxury grows, this may no longer be the case. More and more manufacturers (and retailers) are jumping on the single-origin label, which promises profitability as well as meeting consumer demand for more value-added and responsible products. As the world’s largest packaged food player, Nestlé is predictably en route to taking this request on board. The company recently announced plans for its new chocolate moulding and packing line in Ecuador, which will use the country’s award-winning Arriba cocoa beans to make value-added chocolates for export and domestic consumption. A bold venture, one may argue, given that the company does not have any premium brands to go with fine chocolate, but single-origin could well be the answer to Nestlé’s long overdue premiumisation conundrum.

Serving Today’s Luxury Seekers

A growing number of consumers seek more than just a product – something that offers “one minute of pure delight” or their “daily luxury”, as Barry Callebaut puts it. This trend is driving the demand for premium chocolate. Chocolate unit prices are rising globally, a trend that is expected to continue well into the next five years. Premium chocolate is growing very fast in the US, where negative volume growth is being outstripped by positive constant value growth in chocolate confectionery as a whole, as well as Brazil, which is expected to be the largest contributor to global chocolate confectionery value growth during 2014-2019. With its recent acquisition of Russell Stover, Lindt is setting the stakes higher still, betting on the sustained triumph of high-end chocolate in the US, the world’s largest confectionery market.

HBA Global 2014 Recap: L’Occitane's Success in Brazil

To successfully enter a new country, beauty companies need to be aware of the retailing and economic conditions as well as the needs of the consumers in that country. A successful example of a beauty company entering a new market is L’Occitane’s entrance into Brazil. In order to compete with local beauty players and avoid the high import tax in Brazil, L’Occitane created a new line of locally manufactured products called L’Occitane au Bresil. The products mirror the success of Brazil’s own Natura, which offers products made with local ingredients, by using indigenous plants in the products.

Arrival of Financial Cards to Latin America Led to Credit Binge

Michelle EvansAnalyst Insight by Michelle Evans - Senior Consumer Finance Analyst

View Michelle Evans's profile on LinkedIn

The introduction of financial cards to many emerging markets not only gave many consumers a new way to pay, but it also gave them easy access to credit. Consumers could fund more purchases than ever before. Of course, this newfound access to credit also came with its own set of challenges as many consumers can attest. While card lending helped some markets to rebound more quickly from the global recession or expand the economy in general, this emerging category of lending also left numerous consumers deep in debt.

The debt troubles associated with this lending type for consumers were especially pronounced across Latin America more so than any other region. Three Latin American countries (Colombia, Argentina and Chile) ranked in the top 10 for the fastest growth in card lending debt since 2008. In addition, out of the top 15 markets with the greatest reliance on card lending as of 2013, four are located in Latin America (Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina and Brazil). In fact, Latin America is the most reliant on card lending only after Asia Pacific, which was heavily influenced by China.

Rum's Image Problem in Chile Leads to Dramatic Decrease in Sales

 

Rum, which has enjoyed a decade of uninterrupted growth in Chile, is no longer a favorite among Chilean consumers. Sales of the drink fell by about 40 percent in volume terms from 2011 to 2013. This dramatic drop was caused by rum's image problem in the country. Essentially, the drink became so popular that consumers are now tired of it. Major manufacturers are fleeing Chile, leaving the rum market to a few local brands and imports.

Problema de imagen del ron en Chile causa dramática caída en ventas

El ron, que ha gozado de una década de crecimiento interrumpido en Chile, dejó de ser un favorito entre los consumidores. El volumen de ventas de esta bebida cayó aproximadamente 40 por ciento entre 2011 y 2013. Esta dramática caída fue causada por el problema de imagen que enfrenta el ron en el país. Fundamentalmente, el trago se volvió tan popular que los consumidores se cansaron de él.
