What a journey! The Dubble and Divine bars have finished their trek from bean to bar. The final piece in the chocolate chain is YOU! The choices you make when you reach for a chocolate bar have an influence all the way back through the chain to its very beginning, the cocoa farmer.
In the UK, as of 2014, 21% of the chocolate market is certified Fairtrade but remember the farmers of Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana would love to sell all of their cocoa beans to Fairtrade companies. What's more, Divine Chocolate Ltd are proving that Fairtrade is just the beginning and the Kuapa Kokoo farmers are proud to co-own Divine Chocolate Ltd and have a say in how their chocolate is made and a share of the profits too!
Check out this great little film about how Divine and Dubble have led the way to change the way the chocolate industry is working.
