El Corte Inglés Introduces Award Winning Ecuadorian Chocolate To Its Stores

El Corte Inglés now stocks award-winning Pacari chocolates in its stores, reports.

In late January, the Spanish retailer introduced the chocolates to just 40 outlets, but Santiago Peralta, the founder of Pacari, says he hopes to see the products available in up to 300 El Corte Inglés stores by the end of the year.

Peralta said sales have been positive so far, commenting, “The Spanish consumer knows how to appreciate the quality of food and is willing to pay for it.”

“We are optimistic about this market,” he added.

Founded in 2002, Pacari is a family run business that uses high quality cocoa grown in Ecuador, Peru and Colombia.


Its products have won more than 100 awards, including three Silver Medals at the World Finals of the International Chocolate Awards 2015.

Pacari chocolates are sold in more than 37 countries around the world, including Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, China and the US.
