Cocoa

You can enjoy chocolate that makes you feel as good as it tastes! Cocoa farmers are often forced to sell their harvest to middlemen who rig scales or misrepresent prices, and media reports of child slavery show the stark contrast between the delicious treat and the difficult conditions of the people who produce it. Fair Trade certification ensures that farmers receive a fair price, allows farmers to invest in techniques that bring out the flavors of the region, and strictly prohibits slave and child labor.

News & Facts:

NBC News: Chocolate Is a Bittersweet Way of Life in Ghana

This should be a prosperous time for Justice Obini, a cocoa farmer in West Africa. With appetite for chocolate at an all-time high – the global demand has risen 13 percent in five years – his cocoa beans are sought after. Yet Obini struggles daily to take care of his farm -- and his family of ten.

Cocoa trees in much of West Africa are becoming barren, yet farmers living in poverty cannot afford to replant new seedlings. This forces farmers to use more fertilizers, which is expensive and harmful to workers and the environment. Fair Trade connects farmers to credit and teaches sustainable farming.
