What could be better than chocolate? Chocolate that supports the farmers that grow the cocoa, of course!
45% of Divine Chocolate is owned by the Ghanaian farmers in the Kuapa Kokoo agricultural cooperative. Farmers not only benefit from Fair Trade cocoa prices, they also recieve a share in Divine Chocolate’s profits and have meaningful input in company decisions.
In addition, Kuapa Kokoo has invested its Fair Trade income in building schools, sinking wells for clean drinking water to villages, providing mobile medical clinics for farmers in remote growing regions, and fostering women’s income generation projects to help women earn additional income for their families when the cocoa season is over.
