Delicious, finest quality fair trade and organic baking cocoa, from CONACADO, a cocoa co-operative in the Dominican Republic.
Imported from our friends Trade Aid in New Zealand, who ensure the cocoa 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 cocoa 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!

Appreciate your attention to detail and as always regard NI as one of the best sources of info on social-welfare, justice and environmental issues on a global scale. Keeps it all in perspective, which becomes increasingly harder to do in the info-overload age!
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
Love your organisation and your shop, keep up the fab work.
