Chocolate and sugar confectionary: turnover of enterprises in the UK 2008-2019

In 2019, the total turnover of companies producing chocolate and confectionary was approximately four billion British pounds. Between 2011 and 2019 the turnover fluctuated. However, prior to 2011 turnover was much higher, reaching over five billion pounds in 2008. While turnover is down, the number of enterprises operating in the sector has risen.

PRODCOM survey

The data shown here comes from the UK Manufacturers' Sales by Product survey (called PRODCOM from “PRODuction COMmunautaire”). The survey is mandated by EU regulations. The aim is to provide a complete overview of the developments of industrial production in the EU area and make country comparisons possible. The data comes directly from the companies which are surveyed by the national statistical institutes of each country.

UK producers’ sales of chocolate and confectionary

The same drop that is visible in companies’ overall turnover is also visible in the sales value of chocolate, and confectionary manufactured in the UK. In 2011, the sales value dropped by 50 percent compared to 2010, amounting to 155 million British pounds. The sales value recovered slightly and amounted to approximately 235 million British pounds in 2019. Sugar confectionary saw a sales drop between 2012 and 2016 but has since recovered.
