What Is Fair Trade?
Fair trade cocoa and chocolate are all about building trust and a mutually beneficial relationship that bridges the diverse cultural and geographic boundaries. As a global movement, it ensures that small farmers in developing countries have better economic stability.
So when you buy fair trade chocolate from us, you are effectively supporting eco-friendly farming methods, promoting fair working standards and investing in sustainable agriculture.
Even better, fair trade ensures that the cocoa is only of premium quality; this means that you only get organic and delicious chocolate!
Some Fair Trade Chocolate Facts
Here are some exciting facts about fair trade cocoa:
- The average cocoa farmer is over 50 years old because younger generations are not interested in the industry and the benefits are poor.
- Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire are the top producers of cocoa with the former contributing 40% of all the cocoa available globally.
- Fair trade standards prohibit the use of GMOs and agro-chemicals.
- As farmers are paid a fair price for their work, they are able to increase their productivity and quality
Benefits Of Fair Trade
Fair trade chocolate sales help in paying back the farmers with premiums that cooperatives use to develop and improve farms.
This results in increased quality of cocoa, which in turn leads to a substantial increase in income.
