The produce in the meal was grown locally by cooperatives of meat and vegetable farmers who attended the dinner and enjoyed talking to the cocoa farmers about the similar issues they both faced.

Everyone at the concert enjoyed meeting the farmers and sampling Divine Chocolate. The farmers were very impressed by the hospitality in Merthyr Tydfil and the fantastic music throughout the evenings event.
