Germany’s Chocolate Craving

Robust consumer demand lifted imports of Swiss chocolate for the first time in four years

Swiss chocolate exports to Germany rose 16 percent last year, increasing for the first time since 2013 amid strong consumer demand in Europe’s largest economy. Germany is benefiting from rising demand for industrial goods from within the country and abroad, as well as robust consumption underpinned by steadily declining unemployment. Back home in Switzerland the situation is less rosy: annual per-capita consumption declined to 10.5 kilos, down from 12 kilos in 2013.
