Event Description

For those of you who have a Fine Chocolate Business or are seriously considering starting one, we are hosting a few events on Saturday June 27th in New York City that you may be interested in attending.

If you are planning to be in New York for the Fancy Food Show, or live in the general area, consider joining us for our educational program and/or the Fine Chocolate Industry Cocktail Reception.

Registration is required. More information is available on the FCIA's website:

The Educational Program consists of 2 sessions:
The State of the Cocoa Bean
Doing More with Less; tips and techniques that fine chocolate companies can use to sustain and thrive in the current economic climate.

The educational program is followed by the cocktail reception. Come for one or both. I hope to see you there!

What MaryJo neglected to mention was the name of the presenter for the State of the Cocoa Bean session"

"Dr Juan C. Motomayor discusses the implications for the industry of the results of the 2008 study: Geographic and Genetic Population Differentiation of the Amazonian Chocolate Tree where the researchers studied genetic markers in more than 1,200 cacao samples representing geographic regions around the world discovering there are 10 genetic clusters, not just 3 i.e. Forastero, Trinitario and Criollo."

I would love to join you and meet you in person, but I will be out of the country that week. Will miss the Fancy Food Show as well! Bummer!
