WHY CHOOSE FAIRTRADE CHOCOLATE?

Five new Fairtrade chocolate bars…….

At Fairtrade, we’re all fans of chocolate.

But we know that cocoa farming can be punishing. Farmers work long, hard days – often not earning enough to live on. According to research, a typical cocoa farmer in Côte d’Ivoire earns less than $1 a day.

Added to that is the increasing impact of climate change, with unpredictable weather and new pests and diseases attacking cocoa crops.

Together with farmers and businesses, Fairtrade is working for a fairer future in chocolate.

Fairtrade farmers receive the Fairtrade Minimum Price for their goods, plus the Fairtrade Premium.

This extra sum of money means that not only can cocoa farmers pay for everyday necessities like healthcare, they can invest the Premium into projects to help the community or to improve biodiversity where they live.

So next time you get your chocolate fix, make sure it has the Fairtrade MARK on the label.

How does Fairtrade pricing work?

HOW DOES FAIRTRADE PRICING WORK?
So how can Fairtrade often be cheaper but also give farmers and workers a fairer deal?

Imagine you have bought a £1 bar of supermarket (NOT Fairtrade) chocolate. Of that £1, just six pence goes to the cocoa producer.

So who did you just give 94p to? About 40p went to the chocolate company, 35p to the retailer and the rest to other parts of the supply chain.

Seen like this, it’s obvious that giving farmers and workers a better deal is not about asking you to pay a higher price. It’s about giving producers a bigger proportion of the price you already pay.
