About the Webinar:

Cocoa production is a driver of deforestation. Today, many chocolate brands have made commitments to tackle deforestation within their supply chains, but how can the industry ensure cocoa is not grown at the expense of tropical forests? Join us, along with speakers from Mighty Earth, Valrhona, and World Cocoa Foundation to discuss the solutions in the first of a series of Earthworm Foundation cocoa webinars.
