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!

Thank you for your wonderful magazine. I look forward to receiving it every month and always find a lot to think about when I read it.
I have been really happy with the purchases I have made and will definitely buy again from your organization.
I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.
... we just love supporting the great work you guys do ...
A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
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.
