For months now, there has been talk of rising cocoa prices. Rising global demand and disruptions to cocoa bean production in Ghana and Ivory Coast due to the spread of Ebola are to blame. And the effects are starting to show up on store shelves. So, whether you munch on M&Ms ,enjoy Theo's chocolates , have a daily mocha or indulge in Chocolate Krak, you may soon see an increase in prices. Mars Inc. and Nestle's have both already raised prices, other manufacturers are planning to raise prices by Easter 2015.
We plan to do all we can to keep Chocolate Krak at current prices by absorbing the increase (currently about 7%) for as long as feasible.
