Cocoa, human rights and advocacy, this is where Andrea feels at home in terms of content. Fieldwork in Mexico, journalism in the Swiss media, and many years of working on human rights in the cocoa value chain at Public Eye made her realize how important it is to know the people and their needs in food production chains. She is therefore excited to use the Schoggifestival to turn the conventional chocolate world on its head with new, more sustainable approaches.


A few years ago, the illustrator and graphic designer’s attention fell on the problems in the cocoa business. Since then, she has supported sustainable production and meaningful projects in the field of cocoa and is fascinated by how cocoa has accompanied people for so many years and what delicious products can be made from the fine cocoa. With her work for the Schoggifestival she wants to express her gratitude to the wonderful nature and to those producers who work for a better chocolate world.


Anja studied sociology and cultural studies. With her company, the agency Nunyola GmbH, she exclusively serves customers behind whose social and ecological responsibility she can stand. She is also active in her parents’ company Yayra Glover Ltd. in Ghana, which has the great goal of decolonizing cocoa. She initiated the chocolate festival before the pandemic with the aim of informing consumers and getting them to think about alternatives when buying chocolate that would improve the lives of cocoa producers in the long term.


Evelyn is a human geographer with a focus on development and globalization. In Bali, Indonesia, she supported the civil society organization Kalimajari in the implementation of the project “Sustainable Cocoa” with the aim of making the local cocoa sector ecologically and socially sustainable. In the course of researching her Master’s thesis “Human Equality and Societal Transformation: Gendered perspectives within a cacao-growing community in Bali, Indonesia”, she was able to emphasize that women and men can be affected by power structures and development approaches in different ways. As a chocolate lover, Evelyn appreciates knowing the personal stories of the people behind the products and wants to continue advocating for sustainable and transparent value chains and human rights in the cocoa sector at the Good Chocolate Hub.


Diana is the founder of Detours Zürich, a tourism company that offers Social Impact Walking Tours on various subjects for locals and travelers alike.
With her Ethical Chocolate tour, Diana and her team raise awareness about the challenges in the chocolate industry, address the history of chocolate and its colonial ties, and shine a light on local, honest chocolate makers who follow the bean-to-bar trade model.
Diana is convinced that by showcasing local solutions to global problems, consumers will get inspired to change their consumption behaviour, choosing to enjoy ethically and sustainably produced chocolate.
In joining the team of Schoggifestival, Diana looks forward to opening up new synergies between visitors, locals and chocolate makers, while expanding her own expertise and knowledge on ethical practices in the chocolate world.
