Chocolate is a sweet food product that is extracted from cacao seeds of Theobroma cacao trees. It is extracted by roasting the fermented cacao beans and further grinding it to a paste, where the cocoa butter and cocoa liquor are segregated at high pressure. Typically sold as solid bars, it also forms an essential component in confectioneries and bakery products. Chocolate bars are manufactured by using cocoa liquor, milk, cocoa butter, and sugar and are often served with additional ingredients, such as dry fruits, nuts and caramel. Moderate chocolate consumption boosts serotonin levels that aid in calming the brain. It also releases endorphins in the body, thereby acting as an anti-depressant.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the chocolate market. During the onset of the pandemic, the lockdowns were responsible for the shutdowns of multiple supply chains and distribution destinations for chocolate companies, such as food service joints, restaurants and hotels, resulting in a largely reduced sales volume. While the prevalent restrictions caused loss in the cocoa farming, the augmenting consumption of chocolates due to the increased stress positively impacted the product sales during the latter half of the pandemic.
