2019 theme: The Responsibility of Taste
The specialty cacao-chocolate industry has been heavily focused on taste - quality of flavor and the ability to discern quality - as a vehicle of market differentiation. At the same time, many of the marketing tools of specialty chocolate rely on linking good taste to social and economic goodness. The links among these elements remain blurry, are not yet clearly defined by specialty cacao or chocolate producers, and often rely on interpretations of work from related but different industries. We aim to hold a thoughtful conversation on what this means for the future of chocolate.
