Aloha All,

Our mission has always been & will always be to support, promote and advocate for the chocolate and cacao industry in Hawai'i. 

We understand that during this difficult and uncertain time in our world, there may be a bigger need for this than ever before.


We want you to know we’re here to stand beside you, support you and help you through this.

Together, we will overcome this.

With that said, we are launching a Social Media Member Feature Project.

This means, we want to feature & promote YOU & YOUR business on our social media platforms. (FB & IG)

If interested, please email us at info@hawaiichocolate.org with the subject line “Membership Feature”; we’ll get back to you as soon as we can to discuss details & the scheduling of your feature on both of our platforms.


We, here within the HCCA, will continue to share relief programs, grants and other announcements geared toward farmers and small businesses as we learn of them. 

Make sure you're connected with us on Facebook & Instagram!

We appreciate your continued support and aloha. 


Despite the conference’s postponement, the majority of our existing memberships typically come up for renewal this time of year to coincide with the discount for attending the annual conference and the Association’s elections for Board of Directors. If you haven’t had a chance to renew your membership yet, or are thinking of joining, we encourage you to do so now—particularly so you can receive the discounted rate for the conference once the Fall Conference date is released. 

Additionally, certified and full-membership status members are eligible to run for and vote for a Board Member position.


Become a member with the Hawaii Chocolate and Cacao Association for benefits including invitations to meetings and networking events, industry promotion, discounts, member newsletter, education material, and more. As an active member you will receive a member discount on future conference and event registrations.


Your membership is an opportunity to save while continuing to support the Hawaii Chocolate & Cacao Assoc.
