The Cocoa Association of Asia (CAA) International Cocoa Conference will now take place from 4 to 5 November 2021 at the Raffles City Convention Centre (RCCC), Singapore.

Organizers said the decision has been made considering the safety of guests and audience as its top priority. The conference was originally scheduled for March this year, before been put back to June, but the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has meant that organizers were left with the only option to reschedule for next year.

The 2021 conference will continue to bring together over 500 of the world’s leading players in cocoa and chocolate to Singapore for a two-day event of discussions, networking opportunities and a Gala Dinner.

In 2017 the Conference theme was 'Making Asian Cocoa Great Again'. Since then, Asia’s growing affluence and changing lifestyle has boosted consumption of cocoa products, raising demand year on year.
