At the Schoggifestival ehrundredlich 2020, we support to our best knowledge and conscience those companies that convince us with their social and ecological responsibility, but also with their products: social entrepreneurs, bean-to-bar companies, direct trade organisations, but also start-ups that attach great importance to the authentic character of their chocolate, pioneers in empowerment and trading companies that economically combine social and ecological values and build sustainable supply chains for chocolate – an honest generation of cocoa and chocolate companies.

The NGOs and the research that belong to this area with critical and innovative ideas are also welcome.
