Where does the best chocolate in the world come from?
The origin of chocolate excellence has often been attributed to countries such as Switzerland or Belgium, but opinions are unanimous in recent years: France is at the top of the list.
This is due to the upmarket and quality of products of this kind in France. And zChocolat is the worthy representative because our chef chocolatier, Pascal Caffet is the best worker in France and won first place at the world championship in this category.
Just like Lenôtre, Alain Ducasse, Patrick Roger and Jacques Genin, he actively participated in what made France shine by the quality of its international chocolate delicacies.

Which countries are the biggest consumers of chocolate?
We may have the best food of our kind, but France is only tenth in the world rankings! There is much more greedy than us in the world and here is the list of achievements:
Here is the list of the ten countries that consumed most chocolate in 2012, per capita:
1. Switzerland 11.9 kg
2. Ireland 9.9 kg
3. United Kingdom 9.5 kg
4. Austria 8.8 kg
5. Belgium 8.3 kg
6. Germany 8.2 kg
7. Norway 8 kg
8. Denmark 7.5 kg
9. Canada 6.4 kg
10. France 6.3 kg
Because chocolate is considered a luxury in some countries, the majority of the world’s top 20 chocolate connoisseurs are also among the richest in the world.
It should be noted that even if India does not appear in the top 20, it is the nation with the strongest increase in chocolate consumption. Its sales doubled in three years, from $418 million in 2008 to $857 million in 2011.
Why are these better chocolates so expensive?
You are probably used to buying chocolates in chains or supermarkets. These are industrially produced in colossal quantities with ingredients often requiring the addition of colouring agents and preservatives. This is not the case of our chocolates, which are made manually with first choice ingredients in France in much smaller quantities to keep the quality of the best chocolate in the world. Add to that the particular care taken at each step of your order, you pay the price of the know-how and the time we spend to elaborate our recipes. It’s just a different approach, because at zChocolat we are focused on offering sublime and gourmet gifts and not on the desire to flood homes with cheap industrial chocolate.
