Future of Chocolate: A Conversation with Root Capital & Taza Chocolate

June 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 | 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Impact Hub Boston, 50 Milk St 15th floor, Boston, MA 02109
It’s time to think about how we can all contribute to chocolate’s sustainable future as climate change threatens its long-term viability.
Many of us don’t think twice about eating a bar of chocolate; the more chocolate the better! But as climate change threatens the long-term viability of both the plant chocolate comes from and the farmers who grow it, it’s time that we think about how we can all contribute to chocolate’s sustainable future.
Join Root Capital’s Founder & CEO, Willy Foote, and Taza Chocolate’s Founder & CEO, Alex Whitmore, for a conversation about the relationship between climate change and chocolate. You’ll learn more about how a changing climate affects the farms that chocolate comes from, how farmers can adapt to climate shocks, and how people like you can make sure that chocolate stays around for years to come.
