Founded in 2012, Hawaii Chocolate and Cacao Association's mission is to promote the emerging chocolate and cacao industry in Hawaii. We work diligently to assure the health of our industry and provide education and information to our members and the public.
There has been an update to the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) that now includes cacao.
Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2, or CFAP 2, will provide producers with financial assistance that gives them the ability to absorb some of the increased marketing costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
The USDA will accept CFAP 2 applications from TODAY, September 21, 2020 through December 11, 2020.
For more information please visit: https://www.farmers.gov/cfap

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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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.
