Chocoa Conference 2020
February 20 - February 21
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 theme of the seventh edition of the Chocoa Conference 2019, ‘Cocoapolitics and Choconomics’, allowed lively presentations and vivid discussions. The economics and politics of cocoa are often discussed, but as they are interwoven it is hard to pinpoint if an issue is a consequence of the one or of the other. This causes key issues within the cocoa supply chain to persist. Especially poverty (or the absence of a living income), child labour and deforestation have not been effectively addressed. The speakers, panellists and audience will discuss these key issues.
