India - One of the Fastest Growing Chocolate Markets in the World
While before the 1990’s chocolate was relatively rare in India, since the turn of the century Indian consumers have begun consuming chocolate at record rates. As a result of increased disposable income and a younger population characterized by a penchant for luxury products, the chocolate industry has recently been experiencing 20% annual growth, leading it to become a major 12-digit industry. Suddenly, what was once considered a treat exclusively for children has become an important indulgence for adults as well, with the trend sweeping outward from major urban areas like Mumbai, Bangalore (Bengaluru), and New Delhi into the surrounding rural regions.
Creamy Milk Chocolate
One of the biggest trends in Indian chocolate is a preference for milk chocolate. While dark chocolate and white chocolate have their own devoted followers, milk chocolate reigns supreme across the subcontinent. zChocolat’s Ivory Coast-sourced milk chocolate is a particular local favorite because of its rich creamy texture and sweet unmuddled flavors. Made using only 100% pure, never blended, cocoa butter alongside the perfect combination of milk and sugar, each bite is a prime example of why zChocolat is considered the world’s best chocolate. If your recipient is located in India and is a fan of fine French chocolate, consider including a
milk chocolate assortment
in your gift. Packed with fifteen of master chocolatier Pascal Caffet’s most requested milk chocolate recipes (including two signature milk chocolate Z Chocolates featuring hazelnut praline layered with sweet-salty caramel), it’s a delicious way to delve into the world of fine French chocolate and sure to be appreciated no matter what the occasion.
Gourmet Rakhi Gifts
Send something spectacular to celebrate the season of sibling affection. The festival of Raksah Bandhan is a time to cherish the ties that bind together brothers and sisters.

With a wide range of assortments and stunningly unique packaging options, zChocolat is the perfect way to pamper your sister with something both sumptuous and beautiful.
Corporate Diwali Gifts Made Easy
The five day festival of Diwali each fall is one of the highlights of India’s calendar. Reaching a climax with the festival of lights on day three, it’s a week of parties, firecrackers, sweets, and gifts. Along with sharing presents with family and friends, many companies make it a point to include employees and important clients on their Diwali gift list. zChocolat simplifies corporate gift-giving by offering extensive personalization options and high-quality luxury products. Relied on by over 8000 companies located in 120 countries, we’ve turned business gift-giving into a refined art that makes traditional gift baskets pale in comparison. All-natural, preservative-free chocolates sent directly from France are sure to impress any recipient, while customization options like being able to include a company logo or meaningful image on the box mean they’ll never forget your thoughtful gesture. And a unique
corporate membership program
brings together the elegance and luxury of our world-famous chocolates with generous volume discounts that accumulate over time. (An equally spectacular personal membership program is available, offering bonus assortments each time you send chocolates to India or anywhere else.)
All our chocolates are handmade by our chocolate master Pascal Caffet, World Champion Chocolatier, with zealous adherence to French tradition: no alcohol, no preservatives, no coloring, high cocoa content, low sugar and 100% pure cocoa butter.
No matter where your recipient lives, our unique temperature sensitive packaging and rapid DHL Express delivery mean connoisseurs of zChocolat’s all-natural, preservative-free confections can enjoy French chocolate anywhere in the world.

Customs duties in India
Local duties and tarifs may be applicable upon delivery in India. Such fees are not applied systematically and cannot be assessed in advance because they vary widely from 0% to 60% of the total declared value (invoice amount less shipping charge). If you send our chocolates as gifts, we make absolutely certain that your gift recipient does not pay any taxes upon delivery. We ship Delivery Duties Paid to India. If a duty fee is applied, we pay it on your behalf when making entry in India and bill you separately upon receipt of the local customs invoice several weeks after delivery. An invoice is sent to you via email at such time including a USD 16.79 processing fee. Please note that in some instances, the custom clearance process may delay delivery.
Based on our experience, there is a 19% chance that your chocolates will be taxed.
