De Grote Chocoladewijzer
There are still many challenges in the cocoa and chocolate sector that need to be resolved. Chocolate is a product of pleasure, but cocoa farmers still live in poverty. Luckily, there are a lot of improvements and there is more and more sustainable chocolate available. But what does ‘sustainable chocolate’ mean. And what kind of chocolate should you buy to make a sustainable choice? We help you with these questions during the Grote Chocoladewijzer, held on Saturday the 25th of February at the Chocoa Festival. We will talk with people from the chocolate industry about the right choices you can make as a consumer. Because by making the right chocolate choice, you can make the world a little bit better by eating chocolate, piece by piece!
