Chocolate

Delicious chocolate supporting cocoa farmers and their communities!

Chocolate

Although fair trade chocolate may be a relatively new movement, the conditions that it tries to prevent are not. When you take a bite into that delicious chocolate bar, do you stop to think about who grew the cocoa that made this treat possible? Possibly one of the more than 15,000 child slaves working on cocoa farms in West Africa. 

Five North Chocolate is committed to sourcing only the highest quality, Fair Trade Certified™ cocoa from around the world to create a delicious chocolate snack you feel good about eating. 2/3 of the world’s cocoa is grown at five degrees north of the equator. Here, West African farmers are too often exploited for their work.

Lake Champlain Chocolates is committed to buying fair trade chocolate certified by a third party and is proud to have earned Fair for Life - Social & Fair Trade Certification. In addition, they are embarking on direct partnerships with cacao growers in Guatemala and other emerging markets, and funding a World Cocoa Foundation scholarship to empower women and educate youth in Ivory Coast, Africa.

Divine Chocolate, is co-owned by the 85,000 farmer members of Kuapa Kokoo, the cooperative in Ghana that supplies the cocoa for each bar of Divine. As owners, they get a share in the profits, a say in the company, and a voice in the global marketplace. By owning the largest share of Divine, Kuapa Kokoo farmers have a seat at the table, therefore more benefits go to smallholder farming families and communities, and they have more control over their own destinies.
