The second edition of the International Symposium on Cocoa Research (ISCR) takes place in Montpellier, France, from 5 December to 7 December.

Postponed from September because of COVID-19 concerns, the Symposium is organised by The International Cocoa Organization (ICCO) in partnership with the French institution Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD).

Having previously attracted over 500 participants, not only from the scientific community but also from the entire cocoa value chain, the ISCR has become a well-established event in the sector for anyone concerned about the future of cocoa.

The main theme of the 2022 edition is: ‘Innovations to Support Market Development and Promote Sustainability in Cocoa Farming to Improve Farmers' Incomes’.

Organisers said for all those attending, the event will will comply with the strictest measures in terms of prevention of COVID-19 – see more on the agenda at iscrsymposium.org
