Chocolate Now and Future: Where demand, sustainability and flavor intersect
Presented by Ed Seguine, president of Seguine Cacao Cocoa & Chocolate Advisers
Seguine, one of the world's leading experts in cacao and chocolate -- from the plant to production -- will discuss how cacao genetics research can help achieve increased yields without compromising taste, the cultural changes driving increased demand for cacao, and potential shortages/prohibitive costs if cacao research efforts are not accelerated.
