CHOCOA Conference 2019 - 'Cocoapolitics and Choconomics', Netherlands

21 Feb 2019 - 22 Feb 2019

The 2019 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, ‘Cocoapolitics and Choconomics’, with speakers such as Michel Arrion of ICCO, Filip Buggenhout of Cargill, Cédric van Cutsem of Cocoa Life/Mondelez International, Etelle Higonet of Mighty Earth and David Guest of the University of Sydney, will allow lively presentations and vivid discussions. Untangling politics and economics is essential to develop new sustainability policies that make sure that key issues within the cocoa supply chain finally get changed. 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."
