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!

I have subscribed to New Internationalist for over 25 years, and can vouch for its fearless, high quality reporting of the real issues all over the world. And lovely items in their shop, too!
I began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
The New Internationalist magazine explains and clarifies all the confusions and contradictions we encounter daily in the media's international news coverage.
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
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.
