About this event

This workshop will give you the opportunity to meet the makers from the Cross Atlantic Chocolate Collective. A cooperative based in the Global south, with members spanning the African continent and Caribbean. This cooperative is comprised of farmers on a mission to radically change some of the systemic issues that have plagued farmers in the Global South for decades, by tackling issues and addressing problems such as; providing living wages, using sustainable techniques in harvesting/growing methods, and providing learning opportunities to member farmers that allow them to broaden their skill sets.

On top of this, Cross Atlantic Chocolate Collective provides the resources and the education needed for local growers to process chocolate in and on the continent and the Caribbean oppose to exporting to Europe or the U.S, which has been the standard for decades.

During the session you will learn about who these farmers are, what their mission is , how you can be involved in this radical movement and their plan to partner with like-minded organizations in the states to help further their mission and broaden the vision of radicalizing the chocolate industry.

All attendees will be eligible to request a sample box of chocolate shipped from one of the cooperative producers
