As I am new to the industry, I've minimal knowledge about getting chocolates imported from other countries.. the procedure involved.. what are the freight charges like.. and how difficult or easy is it to get the couvertures imported in India. Anyone here, who has imported bulk chocolates before or has any knowledge about it is kindly requested to share it here.
I'm not sure about the process, but you'll have to acquire an import license for sure. You can also search for trade directories.
Check with Chocolate World
Getting an import license in your name is an easy process, also the fees is less.
Check with the Indian Customs on rules, restrictions and fees applied to get Chocolate & Cocoa based products into India, also please share the incoming route, would it be coming via SEA or AIR, also the dispatch country, etc...
Good Luck :)

Hi. I guess u r looking to import small batches of either liquer/couverture or beans for artisan production in India. I too am interested and if we could pool our demand, perhaps can share the costs and lower prices. Please get in touch - Madan Patil, +91 97623 50119 www.chocolateworld.co
I've just came back from World of Food India Exhibition in Mumbai.
I was there to find importer for our chocolate, and many visitors wanted to distribute our chocolate, but not many was willing to import it. They seemed it was difficult because of lack of experience. Anyhow, if you all can find an importer who's willing to import chocolate from World suppliers such as ours, please let them know we are also looking for an importer.
