CHOCOA TRADE FAIR
The Chocoa Trade Fair is a meeting place for cocoa producers and distributors, offering network and sales opportunities
ABOUT THE TRADE FAIR
Chocoa Chocoa is organised to promote the consumption and production of sustainable cocoa and chocolate. By providing a market place, the objective of the Chocoa Trade Fair is to facilitate new contacts between cocoa growers, chocolate makers, importers, suppliers of equipment and service providers in the cocoa sector.
The 2015 Chocoa Trade Fair will be organised on Thursday and Friday March 5th and 6th.
Always dreamed of making your own chocolate but got no clue where to start? Want to buy directly from cocoa farmers, but got no leads? Want to expand your cocoa network? Are you importing chocolate or other cocoa products and are you looking for new opportunities? Then, the Trade Fair is definitely interesting for you!
Cocoa growers from several countries will bring their beans and cocoa products to Amsterdam. In 2014 Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Vietnam were represented. The 2015 trade show is building on this success. Buyers can test and taste raw or roasted beans, liquor and other cocoa products and suppliers of equipment and service providers can demonstrate their products to a broad audience in the cocoa sector. There will be seminars on solutions for challenges of small scale cocoa marketing and chocolate production, such as small scale chocolate making, storage, logistics and more.
Are you a supplier of equipment to the cocoa and chocolate sector and do you want to meet potential customers? Are you looking for new business opportunities in the field? Would you like to give a presentation to an audience of professionals or potential customers? Come to the Chocoa Trade Fair 2015 in Amsterdam!
