Members of the newly formed Direct Cacao organisation and other guests in discussion about how we can create a revolution to save and protect the world's great cacao resource. Hosted by Martin Christy of Seventy% with a panel including Sophi Tranchell of Divine Chocolate, Santiago Peralta of Pacari, Phillip Kaufmann, conservationist and founder of Original Beans, Mott Green of The Grenada Chocolate Company and Maricel Presilla.
Great chocolate needs great cacao. We could lose this precious resource unless cacao farmers can build sustainable livelihoods growing fine cacao. We need a new model that benefits consumers, chocolate makers and farmers alike - a virtuous circle of value, price, sustainability and all the pleasure and flavour that can come from great origin chocolate.
Tickets cost £10, payable on the door and can be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
