Chocolate bars: manufacturing sales volume in the United Kingdom (UK) 2008-2019

The sales volume of chocolate bars manufactured in the UK was approximately 35 thousand tons in 2019, an increase of under one thousand tons from 2018. This constitutes a recovery of the production volume, which collapsed between 2008 and 2011 and fell by just under eighty percent, before it stagnated in the early 2010s.

A stagnating market?

The corresponding developments in sales values give the same picture as above. In 2019, sales value of UK output amounted to 210.2 million British pounds. The sales price per kilogram of chocolate bar and average purchase volume of UK consumers in the UK has stagnated in recent years.

Chocolate bar types

Between 2016 and 2017, the average consumer ate 36 grams per week of solid chocolate and a further 49n grams of filled chocolate. The average expenditure per person per week on chocolate bars has overall gone up in the last decade for both types of products. Sales values of filled bars made in the UK have seen a decline since 2008.
