Our article on the renowned Salon du Chocolat opening in The Big Apple created a buzz on our social media channels this week. Established in 1994 as one of the world’s largest chocolate and cocoa shows, the NYC offering in November brings together producers, chocolatiers, chefs and consumers.
Lumina Intelligence analyst Oliver Nieburg’s podcast interview for CN with Rick Scobey, the president of the World Cocoa Foundation, was an interesting and far-reaching discussion that outlined how cocoa outside sustainability programmes can be deforestation-free and what happens to farmers encroaching on protected areas. Worth another listen.
CN’s podcast series is proving popular this week, as another, this time on a new exhibition at York Chocolate Story on the history of the KitKat bar, was shared widely on our social media channels. In this one, we speak to the man behind the exhibition, guest experience manager Bernie Fleck.
The confectionery giant’s statement that says 43% of its chocolate already carry the Cocoa Life logo, including Milka, Cadbury Dairy Milk, and Côte d’Or, while Toblerone and more local brands will be added to its sustainability program, proved popular and controversial with commentators on social media.
Brazilian confectionery company Roma scored a coup by winning a trademark for a chocolate crypto coin using the Bitcoin logo. It also got a thumbs-up from CN’s social media followers.
