The Fine Chocolate Industry Association is a non-profit professional international association for anyone working in the chocolate industry. We welcome chocolate professionals who support the association's Vision, Mission and Code of Ethics. FCIA is the only organization focused 100% on the fine chocolate segment of the industry.
One of the big picture benefits of FICA is our commitment to provide unbiased information on what differentiates fine chocolate and fine chocolate making from mass market chocolate.

We celebrate the artistry and craftsmanship of the fine chocolate professional focused on producing superior products made from premium chocolate and ingredients. Membership includes professionals involved in chocolate from blossom to bonbon and bar:
"Bakon USA is very happy to be one of the founding members of the FCIA. It is a great place to meet people who share an endless passion for chocolate! Each meeting is a new source of inspiration."
"As a new member in the FCIA the last year's event was my first exposure to the membership. Not only was I welcomed as a peer, I was exposed to suppliers and fellow chocolatiers that cared as much as I do about Chocolate. The evening provided a wealth of information, from quality packaging suppliers to extremely unique chocolates to work with and educational resources. I look forward to a continuing membership as "Papa's Chocolates" continues to grow."
"The FCIA community is a very important and absolutely unique resource for those of us who are passionate about fine chocolate. For me and my team, the informal networking and the more formal information sharing is invaluable. There is simply no other forum like it in our industry."
