Cocoa Association of Asia - International Cocoa Conference & Dinner, Singapore

03 Oct 2017 - 04 Oct 2017

Making Asian Cocoa Great Again!
Proudly organized by the Cocoa Association of Asia (CAA), this October, The 2017 CAA International Cocoa Conference will bring together over 500 of the world’s leading players in cocoa & chocolate to Singapore for a powerful 2-day event of discussions, networking and deal-making.
Unprecedented volatility in cocoa prices and increasing headwinds in cocoa & chocolate consumption have undoubtedly had an effect on the industry in recent times while production in Asia has stagnated and is at risk of dwindling further – this naturally leads to the question of how the industry will make cocoa great again, globally and particularly in Asia.
Join us and participate as renowned experts present and debate in a series of interactive panel discussions on key topics ranging from global cocoa fundamentals & sustainability to the future consumption trends in Asia & beyond.
