FCC Courses are held annually in the United Kingdom.

The FCC Courses aim to provide an extensive insight into various aspects of the cocoa trade, focusing on developing awareness, knowledge, and skills to equip cocoa professionals with the necessary abilities to successfully navigate through the complexities of the market.  There is a strong focus towards a greater understanding of the FCC Contracts which support the underlying physical trade.

Our courses are suitable for both beginners and experienced professionals within the cocoa profession.  This is highly unique amongst the international trade, offering those who attend the opportunity to also network and form new partnerships.
