Cadbury Dairy Milk has been Fairtrade since 2009 and was the first mainstream chocolate brand to become Fairtrade certified. Cadbury and Fairtrade are now building on this relationship through a global partnership between Cocoa Life and Fairtrade.

Cadbury's Fairtrade Story

Cadbury and Fairtrade are working in a global partnership between Cocoa Life and Fairtrade to support the roll out of Cocoa Life to Cadbury brands driving greater scale and impact for cocoa farmers and their communities.

Fairtrade will become a partner for the whole Cocoa Life programme, working together to secure the long-term future of cocoa farming communities. By 2019, all Cadbury chocolate in the UK and Ireland will display the Cocoa Life branding, symbolising the adoption of the programme across the Cadbury range.

Fairtrade and Cadbury have achieved significant impact and change since beginning to work together almost a decade ago, for example, farmer income has increased 49% more and cocoa yield increased 37% more in Ghanaian Cocoa Life communities than in communities outside the programme, by enabling the establishment of strong farmer organisations in Ghana, who’ve facilitated the delivery of many benefits to farmers and their communities. These include micro-saving and loan schemes, providing agricultural inputs and training on income diversification and environmental sustainability.

”A glass and a half of milk in every half pound bar of chocolate”. Cadbury Dairy Milk milk chocolate was launched in 1905 and became an instant success. Made with fresh milk and Fairtrade cocoa beans, Cadbury Dairy Milk remains one of the UK’s most loved chocolate brands.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons

Buttons are little bags of fun shaped milk chocolate. And they have been since 1960 when Cadbury first made them. Made with quality Fairtrade cocoa and signature fresh milk, these childhood favourites remain one of the nations’ most popular chocolate treats.
