Vegan chocolate is produced without the use of dairy milk, which many people these days believe is a significant contributor to environmental problems.
  • Vegan chocolate is very nutrient-dense for consumers, but since it is more expensive than normal than traditional chocolate, vegan chocolate producers find it challenging to compete in the world market.
