After a cocktail reception at the Hotel Villa Pamphili on 13 September, it will be down to business with a preliminary programme that will include EU Food Safety guidelines, supply chain issues looking at traceability and deforestation goals, as well as innovation trends in the cocoa sector.
This year the ECA Forum will be hosting CHOCOVISION as a roundtable discussion on traceability. Previously organized as a biannual stand-alone event, the CHOCOVISION session at the ECA Forum will stay true to its core and bring together senior business leaders and key stakeholders in the cocoa, chocolate and confectionery industry to explore impactful measures to drive a sustainable chocolate supply chain.
Event organisers say they are are continuously assessing the Covid situation in Europe to make sure that all participants can safely attend our event. All guests will be required to hold a valid Covid vaccination or recovery certificate in order to comply with the Green Pass regulations in place in Italy. More information is available on the ECA website.
