Cacao of Excellence, a leading organization dedicated to promoting superior quality cocoa and recognizing its producers, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Eurochocolate, the renowned European chocolate festival in Perugia, Italy.

Together, they intend to present the culture, history and extraordinary producers of the ancient cocoa crop.

The partnership will culminate in Cacao of Excellence taking part in the highly anticipated Eurochocolate Festival 2023, which will take place from 13 to 22 October 2023.

Eurochocolate is an annual event that has captivated chocolate aficionados since its inception in 1994.

The festival, which takes place in the charming city of Perugia, attracts nearly one million visitors each year, both tourists and Italians.

This year’s event has an even greater significance since the news of a new exciting adventure is in these days: the forthcoming construction in the historic building of the Covered Market of Perugia of “The City of Chocolate”: a permanent structure ( 2,800 m2 ) dedicated exclusively to the world of cocoa and chocolate which will be inaugurated in October 2024 on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Eurochocolate.

The innovative facility will feature a demonstration farm and chocolate demonstration lab, providing visitors with a captivating experience that walks the entire journey from cocoa to chocolate.

With the construction of this state-of-the-art facility, the company reaffirms its commitment to the cocoa industry and promotes an inclusive vision for the future of chocolate.
