Delicious, finest quality fair trade and organic drinking chocolate, made using cocoa from CONACADO, a cocoa co-operative in the Dominican Republic.
Imported from our friends Trade Aid in New Zealand, who ensure the cocoa and sugar producers receive a fairer, higher income than they otherwise would. This income helps ensure they can feed their families and educate their kids, and allows their communities to invest in health and education - giving them hope for brighter futures.
By buying this fair trade drinking chocolate you:
- bring positive change to cocoa farmers' lives
- provide them with hope for a brighter future
- bring justice to international trade
- are simply making a sweet choice.
Millions of cocoa farmers face economic ruin as the prices they receive for their crops are often less than the cost of production. Low prices mean poverty and hunger for these growers all over the world. Fair trade is a way out of this poverty trap, supporting cocoa co-operatives with higher prices. An additional payment of a social premium funds local community projects and provides farmers with access to a range of services, including education for their children that provides hope for a brighter future. A sweeter deal for all!

For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
(The New Internationalist Magazine) maintains an easy lead as the most readable, interesting, controversial and informative magazine on questions of development
I have enjoyed reading your magazine since I was 14 years old when I discovered it in my school library. I'm now 32 and the magazine still delivers.
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
