Our Mission is Growing the
Local Cacao Industry
Beyond creating, implementing and promoting the Big Island Chocolate Festival, the Kona Cacao Association will work with cacao growers, producers, chocolate enthusiasts and chefs to help create a recognizable brand for Hawaii Island Chocolate.
We will work together towards creating a structure to maintain the quality of cacao grown, marketed and shipped from Hawaii for the future growth of this fledging industry. By joining together, KCA members can create opportunities that will help everyone involved in the cacao industry on the Big Island of Hawaii.
