This issue of the Bulletin   contains the Secretariat’s revised forecasts for the 2013/2014 cocoa year as well as data for the past four years of production and grindings of cocoa beans, detailed by country. The main features of the global cocoa market are illustrated in colour charts. In addition, the Bulletin includes comments on crop and demand prospects in the leading countries for the current season, and a review of price developments on international markets for cocoa beans during the January-March quarter of 2014. Statistical information on trade in cocoa beans, cocoa products and chocolate, by country and by region, published in this edition, covers annual data from 2010/2011 to 2012/2013 and quarterly statistics for the period January-March 2012 to July-September 2013. Details of destination of exports and srcin of imports for leading cocoa exporting countries are also provided. Historical statistics on cocoa trade and consumption, by country and by region, for the period 2004/2005 to 2012/2013 are presented for reference.  2 Ban on Chinese milk products extended by a  year Umesh Isalkar ,TNN | Jul 2, 2014, 12.45 AM IST PUNE: Ban on import of milk and milk products from China has been extended for one more year from June 23, 2014 across the country. The banned items include chocolates and chocolate products, candies, confectionery and food preparations with milk and milk solids as an ingredient. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the country's food regulatory  body, has made it clear that the ban will continue 'unless there are dependable reports about significant improvement in the situation'. Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) official have reiterated that they would initiate strict action against those found selling Chinese milk products in and around the city. The ban was imposed after it was found that melamine, an industrial chemical which could be harmful if consumed, was present in some dairy products imported from China. The ban has been in force since September 2008 and has been extended periodically. The ban has been extended by one more year, from June 23, 2014, since there have been doubts about any improvement in the quality of milk from China. Action will be initiated against those found selling the banned products, said Shashikant Kekare, joint commissioner (food), FDA, Pune division. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade had first banned import of Chinese milk products in September 2008 after reports suggested that they contained melamine,  which damages kidneys in the long run. Chinese dairy farmers were using melamine to increase their profit margins. First, they diluted milk by 30% and then added melamine to increase its protein content. A quality-control equipment is designed to detect nitrogen and not melamine, said Dilip Sangat, assistant commissioner (food), FDA Pune.  3 Manipal Institute of Technology students  build 3D chocolate printer Malavika Murali,ET Bureau | Aug 2, 2014, 01.01 PM IST    Students of Manipal Institute of Technology are launching  India’s  first 3D chocolate printer. RELATED   MIT students make 3D-printed ice cream    MIT plans innovation lab for Nashik after Kumbh    100 metere crack in Manipal causes worry    Formula Manipal unveils its competition vehicle   While the West has been quick to 3D print food items like cheeseburgers and chocolates, this technology is only now entering the East with China and India dabbling in it. Students of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States recently gained fame for building a 3D ice cream printer. Now students of Manipal Institute of Technology are launching India's first 3D chocolate printer. Named Chocobot, the 3D chocolate printer makes custom-shaped chocolates and icing. It will be sold commercially in the second half of August. This could be the next big thing. We love 3D printing and everybody loves food, said Gopal Krishna, director of Global3dlabs, the startup launched by the students of MIT. The Manipal startup, which launched its first 3D printer 'Pramaan' at Rs 75,000 in April, collaborated with a local bakery, that served as a testbed, giving inputs and suggestions, throughout the development process.  World over, industries are warming up to the idea of digital food. NASA funded a project this year of 3D printed pizza for astronauts pioneered by Indian-  4 srcin engineer Anjan Contractor who used crust, cheese and protein as raw material. Chocolate maker Hershey's struck a multi-year deal earlier this year with South Carolina's 3D Systems to build a 3D chocolate printer, while Barcelona-based startup Natural Machines has launched a Kickstarter campaign of $100,000 (around Rs 60 lakh) for Foodini, a 3D printer that can print multi-course meals, from crackers to caviar. Chocobot, is like a regular 3D printer, with the same design software but produces chocolates in different shapes and sizes. It takes about 40 minutes to print a plate of chocolates. It's a cost-cutting measure and it's new technology. Both serve well for a bakery startup like ours. Of course, there is the time constraint, but that does not bother us too much, said Prajwal Kumar, who heads marketing at Fiona's bakery in Manipal, highlighting the financial strains of shelling out employees' salaries that could be solved by buying the printer that will produce the same quantity. The Chocolate Industry dated on 04 February 2014 Who are the main manufacturers of chocolate in the world? Candy Industry   publishes an annual list of the top 100 global confectionery companies, ranking them by net sales. The table below is an extract from this list, giving the top ten global confectionery companies that manufacture some form of chocolate, by net confectionery sales value in 2013: Company Net Sales 2013 (US$ millions) Mars Inc (USA) 17,640 Mondelēz International Inc (USA)  14,862 Nestlé SA (Switzerland) 11,760 Meiji Holdings Co Ltd (Japan) 11,742* Ferrero Group (Italy) 10,900 Hershey Foods Corp (USA) 7,043 Arcor (Argentina) 3,700 Chocoladenfabriken Lindt & Sprüngli AG (Switzerland) 3,149 Ezaki Glico Co Ltd (Japan) 3,018* Yildiz Holding (Turkey) 2,500
