Oikocredit Live: The Future of Cocoa – Is Sustainable Chocolate Possible?

NORAN-PE-09.jpg11 June | 2024

An online event on 26 June, 18:45-20:00 CEST.

Are you a chocoholic? We sure are!

But have you ever wondered how you could enjoy a delicious piece – or, let’s be honest, a whole bar – of chocolate AND contribute to a better planet and fair payment for cocoa famers? Register now for our online event and get an exclusive discount to enjoy delicious chocolate made with cocoa from Conacado and other Oikocredit partners!

Join our online session together with Conacado, a cocoa cooperative from the Dominican Republic and Chocolatemakers – a Dutch bean-to-bar chocolate producer – and find out!

We’ll spill the cocoa beans on:

  • How cocoa can be sourced ethically and sustainably
  • How Chocolatemakers is striving for positive change
  • What hurdles Oikocredit partner Conacado faces
  • The role of microloans in supporting cocoa farmers

Our guest speakers will share stories from their work, the challenges they face, and the triumphs they celebrate in their mission to produce exceptional chocolate.

This session offers a rare glimpse into the lives and passions of the people dedicated to providing us the sweet treat we love!
