Waitrose & Partners is responding to Fairtrade’s call to action with a brand new commitment, it will make all the cocoa in its own brand confectionery 100% Fairtrade by the end of 2019. This will significantly increase its Fairtrade cocoa volumes so that farmers can sell more and with the new Minimum Price, they will benefit from a 20% increase in value.

Fairtrade Fortnight: all about chocolate
Saturday 2nd March, 10am-12pm at Guille-Allés Library
A family event aimed at 4-11-year-olds to celebrate and learn all about cocoa and chocolate. Who grows cocoa and where? What are their lives like? How are the beans made into chocolate? How can we make the industry fairer for farmers?
There will be activities, crafts and films to help find the answers to all of these questions, a guided sensory chocolate tasting, and a chocolate-themed story time at 11am.
