CHOCO TEC is one of the most successful congresses and most important meeting places for the chocolate industry.


As a special alternative to this year's Choco Tec we offer you our digital web seminar "Whistleblower - CHOCO TEC". 

We present the web seminar with a series of lectures, which are divided into 5 blocks. This allows you to flexibly choose which series is of particular interest to you and to follow it conveniently from your workplace or home office.
Of course, our experts will be available for questions and discussions in the usual manner after the presentations.

The thirdweb seminar of the series will take place on April 14, 2021, further blocks are planned for  June 9, 2021 and September 9, 2021.
