The opening event of Chocoa, the European Markets Academy, takes you on an exciting journey through the heart of the cocoa trade in Amsterdam! Cocoa producers and chocolate makers will follow various lectures from selected experts on the most important features of the European cocoa and chocolate markets. The focus of the workshops will be on regulations for export, trends in Europe and customer preferences when it comes to post harvesting, or chocolate making. There are 3 dedicated programs: one for cocoa producers and exporters, one for chocolate makers and one for participants of last year.
Depending on the program of your choice, the Academy includes excursions to cocoa warehouses and other cocoa companies in and around Amsterdam. The Academy is your gateway to successful business ventures in the future.
