Conscious Chocolate

Filed under: Events — chansen @ 2:57 pm

This past Tuesday and Thursday, Judy Logback came to campus for two presentations on the Kallari Cocoa Bean Coop in Ecuador. Logback spoke of the major issues of the cocoa and chocolate industry and was direct about the devastating conditions that cocoa farmers live by as they are continually taken advantage of by chocolate monopolies. Logback talked of the inspiring work that is done at the Kallari Coop and accompanying these informative presentations were tantalizing chocolate tastings that had students and teachers smiling alike.
