Organizations We Support
TCF Sales supports a number of industry associations related to the confectionery trade through membership sponsor fees, discounts for students, and charitable dollars.
Organizations such as the Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), Retail Confectioners International (RCI), and Professional Manufacturing Confectioner's Association (PMCA) promote the production of chocolate and candy confections and fine chocolate, and provide a wealth of information and training opportunities for its members. TCF Sales is happy to support these organizations through membership and sponsor fees, and we appreciate the opportunity to mingle with members and exhibit equipment at periodic regional and national conferences and tradeshows.
TCF Sales supports chocolate and pastry schools such as Ecole Chocolat and the Chocolate Academy, with student equipment discounts. We are traditionally the low cost provider of high quality confectionery equipment but wish to further assist industry students by offering an additional discount in hope of further promoting the trade.
We also support industry and non-industry organizations with charitable contributions, including the Heirloom Cacao Preservation (HCP) and the Belize Foundation for Research & Environmental Education (BFREE). The HCP works diligently to identify and preserve heirloom cacao, and BFREE provides research and environmental education regarding rainforest conservation and cacao agroforestry.
