The first Schoggifestival had been planned for April 2020. But then came the Corona lockdown and the festival had to be canceled. The Schoggifestival team then created a platform to bring together multifaceted messages from the world of chocolate in a simple way.


  • Listen to our first podcasts (2020) about the chocolate festival and Easter tips.
  • Dig through the fine online chocolate assortment of the chocolate festival exhibitors.
  • Get an overview of Switzerland and the cocoa in its industrially produced chocolate (a summary from the Schoggifestival ehrundredlich).
  • Read about the history and background of abusive child labour in cocoa in this new report (April 2020) from Public Eye.
  • Read the Cocoa Barometer documents to find out about current sustainability developments and critical issues in the cocoa sector.
  • Watch and listen to the audio-visual messages from the exhibitors and organizers reporting from the Schoggi home office in April 2020 – here on our website or at our Schoggifestival YouTube Channel

The Schoggifestival ehrundredlich could not be held as planned on April 3 & 4, 2020. But the Schoggibewegung has started anyway. An input from Andrea and Anja, project managers of the festival.
