The company said its growth outpaced the global chocolate market, which increased by about 2% during the period. Sales volume in the Region Americas increased 17%, and in North America sales volume was driven by the company’s corporate accounts in the industrial business and Gourmet due to a continued improvement in the food service business in the United States.
