Barry Callebaut is launching BC LIVE, a new digital events platform, the week of June 22 with a series of “bite-sized” webinars to understand lifestyle trends and how chocolate can play a role to meet these specific consumer needs. 

“BC LIVE is a curated and high-touch digital experience, led by our in-house industry experts, that will deliver all the information that food manufacturers need to know about today’s chocolate trends and solutions,” said TJ Mulvihill, v.p. of marketing, North America.

Ideally suited for food manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada, viewers will learn about trends in wellness and sustainability; product solutions, including the launch of two new solutions for vegan and other growing lifestyle categories; plus a behind-the-scenes, new concepts creation experience of “Better For You” treats created by our chefs in real-time.
