Buying Fairtrade chocolate makes a difference for cocoa farmers, their families and communities around the world.
Life is tough for cocoa farmers. Although demand has been high, the price of cocoa beans has fallen in recent years. Cocoa trees are being damaged by disease, climate change, and the fact that they’re simply old. At the same time, the poor prospects of cocoa farming are discouraging the next generation from getting involved.
Fairtrade works to help make cocoa farming more sustainable in countries such as Ivory Coast and Ghana. The Fairtrade Minimum Price acts as a safety net when prices fall while farmers can invest the extra Fairtrade Premium they earn in their businesses and communities to build a better future.
