chocoa conferences

The 2020 Chocoa Conference provides a platform for discussion on sustainability and quality and a direct connection to the market through the Cocoa Fair, allowing the participants to meet cocoa producers from all over the world.

The 8th edition of the conferences promise to be thought-provoking and exciting. We are preparing a selection of highly relevant themes including; Future of Organic, Technology Driven Sustainability, Supporting Entrepreneurship of Cocoa Farmers and an overlapping topic merging Carbon footprint of a Chocolate Bar with Sustainability of the supply chain after Farm-Gate. In addition, we will have an open debate on defining the concept of Forest Friendly Chocolate.
Furthermore, a diverse mix of speakers will host interesting discussions during breakaway sessions, where the above-mentioned issues will be debated in-depth. Visitor participation is highly encouraged during these sessions. The debates will include participants from all areas of the supply-chain, from farmer to government level. The goal is to create an inclusive conversation that addresses the above issues through a holistic approach. The following 4 blocks and topics will be organised during the 2 days:

  • Innovation driven sustainability
  • Carbon footprint of a chocolate bar
  • Promoting Farmer entrepreneurs
  • Future of Organic

Introducing a new format: the Chocoa Passe-partout
This year we have decided to change the format of the B2B program by creating a ‘passe-partout’. One ticket  gives access to all B2B sessions, allowing visitors to pick and compose their personal program, by selecting their favourite topics from all that are on offer! There will be 2 main tracks consisting of the Conferences and Chocolate Makers’ Forum.
Each program will roughly have a morning block and an afternoon block. you choose a main track, but you can also move around during Chocoa – upon availability.
