Consumers are looking for different ways to consume confectionery products that will fit into a healthier lifestyle, says Jones.

“Organic has been an important area of innovation in the last year,” he notes. “This claim has appeared on six per cent of the total launches in the category, increasing by five percentage points compared to the previous year. Millennials are driving fair trade chocolate purchases.”
