Monthly chocolate programming 

Our global community has a new normal. Social distancing keeps guests aways from cacao and chocolate experiences, thousands are kept from their plantations, factories, and kitchens as we await a permanent solution for the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute, Uncommon Cacao, and the Craft Chocolate Experience partnered in March 2020 to foster a collective action for the financial solvency crisis in the specialty cacao and chocolate sector.

The #StayHomeWithChocolate Festival is an emergent, temporary, and collaborative platform to keep interest and boost alternative ways to celebrate global chocolate companies and the consumers that love their products.

aLL YOU NEED TO DO IS STAY HOME with chocolate!
