Be part of the solutions that make cocoa more sustainably sourced!
CHOCOTHON is a collaborative platform, a sustainable innovation initiative that aims to empower and connect cocoa farmers and create new opportunities for them and other value chain stakeholders in cocoa production, reducing supply disruption risks.
Collaborate & create
With the precious support of the World Bank and Valrhona, the World Cocoa Foundation, the Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) project of the International Trade Centre (ITC), The Google Food Lab (GFL), Future Food Institute (FFI) and the Business School Lausanne (BSL) invite you to a two day hackathon to collaborate on creating, prototyping and birthing hardware and software tools which address some of the greatest challenges of cocoa farming.
Teams will have the opportunity to present their solutions to the top cocoa companies, governments and NGOS working on sustainable cocoa during the annual World Cocoa Foundation Partnership Meeting on 25 October at the Impact Hub DC in Washington. The hackathon takes place from October 23rd till October 25th.
Join their mission as a Hacker, Designer, Developer, Volunteer and/or Mentor!
