Chocothon – Launches Today!

By November 3, 2016Startup Scoop

We are incredibly excited to announce the official launch of Chocothon’s crowdfunding campaign today! The campaign kicks off with a world tour to present it to key stakeholders around the international chocolate community. Our goal is to build a more sustainable cocoa supply chain that is equipped to fulfill global demand.


Chocothon is a joint effort led by Google Food Labs and the International Trade Centre (ITC) with knowledge support from Business School Lausanne (BSL) and the Future Food Institute (FFI), aimed at creating a shared value platform to foster sustainable Ghanaian cocoa farming. Crowdfooding is thrilled to act as technical partner, providing the platform on which the funding to support this cause can be raised. We believe crowdfunding is truly impactful in bringing out diverse levels of engagement across the audiences this campaign will touch. Coinciding with the collaborative theme throughout the Chocothon philosophy, crowdfunding aims to not only gather financial resources towards this cause but also the knowledge and expertise that can be shared and contributed.


What can you do to help Chocothon? Spread the word to your personal network, raising awareness and heightening understanding of the problems and solutions we’re exploring in our journey.
