This producer is also feeling the effects of rising cocoa prices. Achieving a balance between the level of supply and demand for raw materials, while maintaining the high quality of producers’ product offering, will require increasing prices, which will likely lead to a decrease in demand. “It is difficult to predict its size now because we do not know how cocoa prices will develop and how long we will have to deal with their unstable nature,” added Kosz Phil Sobchuk.
