The Story of Chocolate - Unwrapping the Bar
If you enjoyed some chocolate over Easter you may be interested in “The Story Of Chocolate” at the link below which looks at the heart of the chocolate industry and how Fairtrade is working towards a living income for cocoa farmers. It specifically focuses on women cocoa farmers in Côte d’Ivoire and the role of women in community development. The story is about 11 minutes long.
Saturday, 9th May was World Fair Trade Day, a moment to celebrate the role that fair trade plays in the fight against poverty across the globe. In the face of a global crisis, farmers and workers around the world are playing a vital but often forgotten role.
