The Insane Chocolate Crisis No One’s Talking About!

A storm has been brewing, and it has hit bakers and chocolatiers hard. While you may not have noticed the subtle uptick in chocolate prices, we, as bakers, are keenly aware of the chocolate chaos unfolding. What’s causing this cocoa commotion, you ask? Well, let’s unwrap the mystery together!

The chocolate world has been hit with a series of challenges, from climate changes affecting cocoa production to global demand soaring to new heights. These factors have contributed to the rise in chocolate prices and ingredients used in Creme Maison Bakery’s cakes and desserts.

How does climate change affect the price of chocolate?

With climate change comes rising temperatures, erratic weather patterns, and shifts in rainfall — all factors contributing to a decline in cocoa yields. This decrease in production not only leads to a shortage of cocoa but also impacts the quality of the beans, driving up prices to an all time high in 2024.

But here’s the scoop: despite the cocoa chaos, here at Creme Maison Bakery we’ve made a sweet promise to our customers. We haven’t raised our prices; we’re keeping them as delightful as ever and committed to delivering the same rich, moist, and luscious chocolate desserts! It’s our way of spreading joy and gratitude to our loyal chocolate connoisseurs. 

The demand for chocolate continues increasing

Chocolate prices are going up because more people want chocolate, plain and simple. With the world craving more cocoa goodies, cocoa bean suppliers are feeling the heat to produce more. But it’s not just about demand; things like currency changes, labour costs, and issues in cocoa-growing areas also play a part in pushing prices higher.
