We will explore the transformation of the Brazilian chocolate market, traditionally oriented to mass confections, but increasingly opening windows to a growing number of premium and craft chocolate brands. We will also cover initiatives that are accelerating the quality learning curve for farmers and craft chocolate makers such as the Cocoa Innovation Center, as well as the Geographic Indication project for the South of Bahia.
