About the Heritage Chocolate Society

For the last 20 years, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate and Mars Wrigley has sponsored an annual meeting with its historic site partners called The Heritage Chocolate Society (HCS). At these meetings, honest and lively discussions are encouraged about new research, cultural impact, and the current challenges facing these partners. Mars Wrigley provides best in class speakers and experts to challenge the current paradigms and encourages historic site partners to openly engage with their visitors on the truth of chocolate’s past while providing resources and tools to help them address the challenging reality of its history given the cultural climate.
