The Chocolate Makers' Forum (CMF) is a must-attend event for chocolate makers, this year offered as an online session.
The session will focus on the new and upcoming EU legislation and its impact on the chocolate industry, with expert speakers sharing insights on how they navigate the policy measures, traceability, and risk assessment required to continue sales on the EU markets.
It will tackle the impact of sustainability policies on the business of craft chocolate makers, including topics such as fair pricing and living income, and how to communicate sustainability policies to customers.
The session will be followed by the Women in Cocoa and Chocolate Network (WINCC), focusing on the gender aspects of the CMF topics.
There will be a Q&A session to attend on 6 December 15.00-16.00 CET, to follow developments together and ask your practical questions.

The webinar: European policy developments
The EU requirements for your chocolate business are changing significantly from January 2024 on. The upcoming European policy developments will impact your sourcing policies and on your business.
What are the exact changes for you? What do chocolate makers need to do? If you don't buy your cocoa yourself but through traders, what do you do? How do you know what your trader is doing so that you can communicate that to the consumer?
We will discuss this and more with the experts, including EU policy makers and country or trade professionals. We will also address the impact of sustainability policies on the business of craft chocolate makers, including topics such as fair pricing and living income, and how to communicate sustainability policies to customers.
Join us to adapt in time to the necessary changes.
Since the developments are in full swing, there may be more information - or more of your questions - in the following months. Therefore we offer a complimentary Q&A session for the CMF participants, to ask your questions as time passes and we collectively adapt to the new regulation.
Date of Q&A session: 6 December 2023, from 15.00-16.00 CET
