On the eastern shore of the Red Sea, Jeddah was one of the most important ports on the trade routes of the Indian Ocean from the 7th century onwards. This is where the goods arrived to Mecca. It was also the port of arrival for pilgrims travelling by sea. This dual role has allowed the development of a multicultural city, characterized by an original architectural tradition, born from the fusion of coral building traditions of the Red Sea coastal region with ideas and know-how gleaned along trade routes. In the 19th century, the merchant elites built superb tower-houses. The great political, commercial and industrial center, one of the most beautiful cities in the country. The unique look of old neighborhoods, a large number of buildings with the most diverse styles and times, modern restaurants and entertainment centres - all this has made this city attractive to travellers.

A Gourmet Gateway
As the largest seaport on the Red Sea, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia is considered a critical gateway, especially for those traveling to the regions’ holiest cities: Mecca and Medina. The influx of millions of pilgrims and tourists each year has given the city a culture and atmosphere that stands out from the rest of the country and has earned it a reputation as the most open city in Saudi Arabia. Among the diverse tastes and interests that have been woven into the fabric of modern-day, Jeddah is an increasing interest in gourmet European goods, including chocolate. In fact, Saudia Arabia is considered the largest chocolate market in the Middle East, with Jeddah leading the way. zChocolat, available in the city since the company’s founding in 1999, has kept up with the rising demand by offering consistently high quality chocolates in stylish packaging well-suited to a culture that places a premium on thoughtful gift-giving.

A Golden Season for Giving
While chocolate is an increasingly popular indulgence all year long, Ramadan and Eid offer particularly notable excuses for enjoying gourmet goodies. Chocolate sales spike by as much as 40% in Jeddah during these seasons as shoppers seek out special gifts for celebrating with co-workers, family, and friends.
