Event details

From climate change to economic instability and inequality, the route from cocoa bean to bar and our indulgence in chocolate is fraught with challenges and controversies. 

Our panel of chocolate experts from across the globe will discuss these challenges and the opportunities for a better future in chocolate production, consumption and the distribution of value. Learn more about the potential of chocolate and the role consumers can play and how your choices can directly impact the lives of others.

This event is delivered in partnership with York Cocoa House who believe that now, more than ever, we need to strive towards creating better chocolate. Chocolate is a luxury that cannot be fully enjoyed if it does not do good. The company opened York Cocoa Works in 2018 with a circular economy approach to the chocolate making process in the quest to create better chocolate for people and the planet.

Join us for a lively discussion and learn more about the people, communities and supply chains all working to explore the full potential of chocolate. 

This event will take place live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function, but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.

Presented in collaboration with York Cocoa House.

This event is part of the York Cocoa House Festival programme. Why not attend related in-person events: The Flavour of Chocolate: Taste training and The Making of the Chocolate City?
