Chocolate spreads are sweet flavored pastes consumed majorly in a form of spread on toasts, breads and other bakery products such as pancakes, muffins, pitas, waffles and additional flavors. These spreads consist of functional ingredients such as whey powders, olive oil and cocoa powder which depict excellent spreadibility at all temperatures. These spreads are majorly sold in plastic tubs and glass jars. Chocolate spreads and peanut butter owing to its high palatability are gradually gaining traction as an alternative to jam and marmalade and has become an integral part of every breakfast.

The market is witnessing significant growth owing to widespread acceptance of bread in daily diets majorly among urban population, where requirement of a suitable spread as a complement becomes a necessity. Increasing use of chocolate spreads as a substitute to butter owing to its low fat content, high nutritive value and easy spreadibility at refrigeration temperatures over food products such as ice cream toppings, croissants, instant hot chocolate are some of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Chocolate spread is perceived to be healthier and competes strongly against spreads made of butter as they constitute high amount of fats whereas the former (chocolate spreads) are made of actual seeds. Rising demand for ready to eat products owing to hectic and changing lifestyles has promoted the usage of readymade chocolate spreads. Increasing health benefits associated with chocolate spreads is also expected to drive the market over the forecast years. For example, Nutella, a hazelnut chocolate spread contains saturated fats and sweet, but also contain vitamins and minerals needed to boost heart health making it fairly nutritious food to be incorporated in everyday meals. However, growing consumer attention over other counterparts such as oats, cereals as breakfast meals along with fluctuating price of cocoa and sugar is expected to hinder the market growth.
