YUMMY! Stunning images of chocolate shops and factories

July 21, 2016 11:09 IST

Chocolate is among the most popular and widely consumed substances in today's world.

According to Trasparency Market Research, the primary growth driver of the global chocolate market is the growing awareness regarding the health benefits of dark, cocoa-rich chocolates.

This trend is expected to dominate the market in the coming years.

The global chocolate market is expected to grow $98.3 billion in 2016.

Chocolate is now popular across the board in several Asia Pacific nations thanks to the success of local as well as international brands.

Let's take a tour of various chocolate shops and factories across the globe!
