Ecuador is known as the home for world’s best chocolates in Latin America. For centuries, cacao has had spiritual importance to many indigenous groups in Latin America. In Latin America, chocolate processing is done by hand including using cast iron hand mills to grind the beans. Some popular chocolate brands in Latin America are, El Rey in Venezuela, Pacari in Ecuador, AMAZ is known as the best brands in Peru and Danta Chocolate, Guatemala.
Country like Mexico is among those few countries having conditions conducive to growing cocoa, which will help to revive the cocoa sector in the country. Mexico has the potential to produce a variety of cocoa and good genetic quality. Hence, organic cocoa and fine flavour of cocoa have huge opportunities to gain profits. Therefore, such developments are likely to open new avenues for the Mexican cocoa market. With Mexico, Colombia cocoa is known for its flavours and aroma, classified in the special cocoa category.
In Latin America, white chocolate sees the highest share and within Latin America, Brazil has the largest appetite for white chocolate. White chocolate is a blend of cocoa butter, sugar and other milk products. It can be used in preparing White chocolate Choco chips, White chocolate mocha, cakes, cookies and many more items. Traditionally, white chocolate is not considered as ‘chocolate’ in proper sense as it does not contain chocolate solids which gives chocolates a bitter, tannic, and berry-like flavour. Rather, the quality of white chocolate is determined by its colour.

According to the report on “Latin America Chocolate Market Outlook, 2026” published by Actual Market Research, shows a detailed overview into the Chocolate industry in Latin America.
