In 2019 we discussed how funding is increasingly available to support the production of sustainable cocoa, as it has an important role in tackling deforestation and biodiversity loss. Nevertheless, a lack of coordination between sustainability projects and available funding leads to inefficiency in capital allocation. We want to spread this knowledge by organizing a special panel discussion.
For the first time we reunited influential experts in impact investment. During Chocoa 2019, These experts discussed the most important aspects within the sustainable cocoa industry. Attendees got a new perspective on the cocoa industry with a special focus on impact investment. The panel explored in great detail how impact investment could enhance collaboration between stakeholders, bring focus on market results, and boost the transition towards a sustainable cocoa supply chain. During Chocoa 2020, experts will speak once more, during a panel you do not want to miss out on.
On Friday 21nd February the 2020 panel discussion will take place preceding the Chocoa 2020 Conference between 09:00 and 10:30 in Amsterdam. The subject will be announced shortly.
All participants and exhibitors of the Chocoa 2020 Conference, the Chocolate Makers’ Forum, and/or the Trade Fair are welcome to attend this side event.”
