GOOD COCOA BETTER CHOCOLATE
"Good cocoa" should always be produced under good sustainable circumstances. "Better chocolate" is produced from those good cocoa beans.
Today less than 20 per cent of the cocoa production is sustainable. The demand for sustainable chocolate is growing but the production of cocoa is not. We want to see this changed by bringing together the cocoa and chocolate industry in order to contribute to the sustainability of the entire chain.
Chocoa is a yearly event in Amsterdam aimed to boost the production and consumption of sustainable cocoa and chocolate. Next edition will be on March 5-9th 2015. Chocoa brings together chocolate lovers, producers, traders, buyers, connoisseurs and chefs in Amsterdam, and consists of several events:
Promoting consumption of sustainable chocolate through education, communication, chocolate and wine tastings and plenty of fun! The best national and international chocolatiers have the opportunity to introduce their chocolates. How is chocolate being made, and what specific aromas can you differentiate? Learn, see and taste during the Festival.
Chefs get to learn more about the secrets of ‘fine or flavour’ and ‘single origin’ chocolate by culinary historian, food author and award winning chef Maricel Presilla. We already know much about the use of chocolate in sweet dishes, but what about chocolate in savoury dishes?
All events are set up to inform and inspire you for: good cocoa, better chocolate. Doing good was never so easy ánd tasteful!
Chocoa 2014 from 27 - 31 March was a great success! The organisation is currently working on the next edition which will be held on March 5-9th 2015. Keep an eye on this website for updated information, or visit our Facebook page. We are looking forward to see you (again)!
