Horeca and retail have a special opportunity to serve the best chocolate to their guests and customers. We organize the Retail event for them, to discuss the latest trends and innovations in the field of chocolate. If you have a retail or coffee shop, and you are selling chocolate in Europe, then this is the place to be! Meet the makers behind the chocolate bars that you are selling and get to hear their stories. You will be able to inspire and inform your guests and clients.
During Chocoa the whole cocoa and chocolate industry comes together, from cocoa farmers to chocolate makers and shopkeepers. Everyone is connected through the love for chocolate. A large group of chocolate makers from the United States, Asia and Latin America will be present, as well as European brands. Many chocolate makers who produce in the same origin as where their cocoa beans come from. What to think of Peru, Ecuador, Vietnam and many more? Learn everything you ever wanted to know about chocolate and be unique in the varieties of chocolate that you offer in your store.
Some topics that will be discussed during the event:
- What are the latest consumer trends in the Netherlands and how can this be compared to other countries?
- What can be learned from other premium sectors, such as coffee?
Learn how to taste like a professional from the one and only chocolate sommelier and organizer of this event – Caroline Lubbers. Close the event with a dedicated tour over the Festival floor, where almost 80 exhibitors with unique chocolates are looking forward to meeting with you. On Sunday 23rd February you will be able to witness the winner of the award: best Cocoa Drink!
