In the second of the FCIA Fine Chocolate Glossary debate-style webinars, you will have a chance to hear once again from the experts: leading agroforestry practitioners, and experienced professionals whose knowledge has guided the application of agroforestry for cocoa farmers worldwide.
Selasse Gidiglo, Senior Officer, Rainforest Alliance
Jerry Toth, Agroforestry Practitioner, Cacao Grower, Chocolate Maker, TMA & To'ak Chocolate (Ecuador)
James Hazen, Chief of Party, Catholic Relief Services (Madagascar)
Dr. Lisette Phelan, Postdoctoral Researcher, School of Geography, University of Leeds
These experts will engage in live debate over the meanings of agroforestry-related terms. In doing so, they will model the type of professional debate and meaning-generation that the FCIA is incorporating into the soon-to-be-launched Fine Chocolate Glossary.
After our panelists reach their consensus (or not!) on the meanings of these important terms, audience members will have a chance to ask these leading agroforestry experts their questions.
The cannabis industry is growing rapidly, with cannabis sales projected to reach more than $22 billion this year! Already, 17 states have legalized cannabis for adults 21+ and 37 states have approved cannabis for medical use. It is no wonder that people from all industries are looking for a way to participate in this new and exciting trend.
Join Emma Rose, of Rosie's Confections, in exploring the relationship between chocolate and cannabis. These two amazing plants share amazing traits such as a diversity of flavonoids, terpenes and even endocannabinoids. With edibles being an increasingly popular way of consuming cannabis, Emma is here to share with you her knowledge of different cannabis extracts, infusion techniques, best-practices for manufacturing chocolate edibles as well as regulations seen in different states/markets.
Have you ever been confused by industry terms used to describe fine chocolate and the value chain? How can your company better communicate fine chocolate and your supply chain to consumers? Can we begin as an industry to agree on a common language?
Join Kate Cavallin and Dr. Kristy Leissle on May 19th as they lead a 75 minute presentation, supported by FCIA company members and outside experts, to address these questions. They will share an extensive glossary of terms, vetted by industry and outside experts, in an important step to adapt a common language for fine chocolate.
During this session, Kate Cavallin will present an overview of the Cocoa Ecosystem Initiative: Why is this important to your company and how can it be used?
There will also be an Expert Panel Review of Glossary of Terms.
