Easter 2017 – Supporting Fair Trade with Divine Chocolate

Make your Easter more meaningful this year through supporting fair trade. Our Fair Trade WA shop is selling Divine Chocolate’s premium Ghana cocoa milk, white and dark chocolate eggs that make the perfect gift for children and adults alike.

The fair trade cooperative behind Divine Chocolate is Kuapa Kokoo, a Ghana based collective of farmers producing high quality since the 1990’s. The cocoa farmers own a 44% share in the company, ensuring they receive a greater share of profits and influence in the local cocoa industry. 

Representing over 50,000 small local growers, the fair trade enterprise has been able to invest in the community through a range of social projects - providing wells for clean drinking water and sanitation, funding the building of local schools and access to agricultural loans and technical assistance.
