Just like wine, chocolate has nuances that can be learned through serious tasting. Head to the Chocoa Festival to learn how to ‘slow’ taste and learn all about the history of chocolate. Also look out for chocolate workshops organised by chocolate makers and other experts.
Chocoa is a yearly event in Amsterdam, organised to show that the cocoa sector in Amsterdam has sustainable ambitions and to contribute to the sustainability of the entire cocoa chain. Chocoa wants to boost production and consumption of sustainable cocoa and chocolate. The event is unique in the world because it brings together all the stakeholders, thereby building a bridge between the production and consumption of chocolate. Chocoa brings together chocolate lovers, traders, buyers, connoisseurs and chefs to Amsterdam, the biggest cacao distribution centre in the world! Chocoa is divided into several programs: the European Market Academy, the Trade Fair, Chocolate Makers’ Forum, Conference, the professional dinner and the Festival are all set up to inform and inspire you to make you part of this mission towards: good cocoa, better chocolate!
Meet producers of cocoa, cocoa products, service providers and other stakeholders at the Chocoa Trade Fair for sustainable cocoa.
Chocolate makers unite to share experiences, find new cocoa origins, take a guided tour on the Trade Fair and have your chocolate tested.
Join us in discussions to stimulate the production and consumption of sustainable cocoa and chocolate.
