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.

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 31% 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 17.56 processing fee. Please note that in some instances, the custom clearance process may delay delivery.
Based on our experience, there is a 57% chance that your chocolates will be taxed.
We deliver within 4 business days to all cities in India such as :
Mythical country, India is six times the size of France and its population exceeds one billion inhabitants. Not surprisingly, it is also the seventh largest country in the world and is also one of the major countries in Southeast Asia.
If the national language is Hindi, it represents only 20% of the mother tongue of the Indians. English is considered the other important language of the country. But in all, there are 18 official languages recognized by the Indian constitution, including Urdu, Bengali, Nepali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil and Sanskrit.
Staying in India is a bit like wanting to lose one's bearings and immerse oneself in a country of contrasts, both economic and with a poverty of another age adjacent to the highest degrees of wealth. The contrast also continues in the colours, with the magnificent saris worn by Indian women or the richness of the bazaars. India also has the merit to address all the public: one can make there trekking and excursions, to privilege the cultural visits, to make safaris or to benefit from its beaches.
The best time to travel to India is undoubtedly between mid-November and mid-March. To go there in May would be to expose oneself to high temperatures between 30 and 40°. The monsoon arrives at the end of June and during the summer months, from June to September, the country is subjected to very heavy rainfall, sometimes leading to risks of natural disasters.
Its relief thus varies greatly from north to south. In the far north, India is thus characterized by a Himalayan zone where Everest and Annapurna culminate at more than 800 meters. Who has never heard of the ascent of its highest points, namely the K2 (8611 m) in the state of Jammu and Kashmir and the Kanchenjunga (8698 m) at the border of Nepal with the state of Sikkim? The Himalayas mark the border with Tibet, China and Nepal. But it is also in northern India that we can visit its magnificent palaces, such as the Taj Mahal.
A region of Maharajas and Jain temples, this geographical area is also home to megalopolises at the crossroads of an excess of modernism and poverty of another age, as witnessed for example by the city of Delhi, strictly divided into eastern districts, with its narrow streets, bazaars and mosques, and the other New Delhi, with its vast boulevards and summer residences.
Other typical reliefs of India include the Indo-Gangetic plain, which extends from the Arabian Sea in the west to the Bay of Bengal in the east. Founded on sedimentary terrain, it is also the most populated region of India and is formed by the Ganges, Indus and Brahmaputra basins.
Further exploration of the country also includes a visit to the Deccan Plateau, located in the south of the peninsula. The relief is still different: in the west, there is a mountain range of 1500 m high called the Western Ghats, which join by the Nilgiri mountains (2630 meters), the Eastern Ghats which are in the east and whose height reaches some 610 m.
It is also in the south of the country that one can visit Mumbai, the rising city of India and true capital both commercial and financial of the country. The contrast is at its peak: not far from the beautiful restaurants very fashionable, lie slums. And everywhere, a large and busy population, wandering for business or pleasure.
Art and culture in India
Bollywood, which covers the Mumbai-based film industry, is the most popular component of Indian cinema. In recent years, this genre has crossed borders, with only a handful of films at this origin. But Indian cinema is very prolific and produces hundreds of films every year. A small cinema session will allow you to better immerse yourself in this culture. Dance and music are also part of India's cultural heritage. With distinctions by geographical zones: if the north gave birth to Hindustani music, the south remains the cradle of Carnatic music.
What to visit in India
For lovers of cultural tourism, the visit to Agra of the Taj Mahal, which means Crown Palace, remains an obligatory passage. Going on holiday in India also means going to what is called the Golden Triangle region and renting a car in India: In addition to Agra, located some 200 km from Delhi, Delhi, the capital of India with 10 million inhabitants and Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, with some 2.5 million inhabitants that is nicknamed the pink city because of its walls and gates painted in this color are part of it.
