Love chocolate, hate injustice?
Farming communities face unpredictable weather patterns that disrupt their income security.
When we choose chocolate that is Fairtrade, we are choosing fairer prices paid to the people who grow the cocoa, and as a result, more financial power to adapt to climate change and become more climate resilient.
It means more financial freedom to invest in their business, diversify crops, share expertise and build sustainable livelihoods for their families and communities.
Fairtrade is about better prices, safe working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
Buying Fairtrade is easy. There are over 6,000 Fairtrade products from coffee and tea to flowers and gold, so when you shop, look for the FAIRTRADE Mark.
The path to living incomes
In 2019 Fairtrade launched an ambitious three year campaign calling on governments and the chocolate industry (worth £4billion in the UK alone) to commit to paying the living income to cocoa farmers in West Africa.
Ways to get involved
With thousands of local campaigning groups across the UK, including Towns, Schools, Universities and Faith Groups, there are lots of ways to get involved with Fairtrade in your community.
From coffee mornings to running marathons, supporters across the UK are finding fun and creative ways to raise money for Fairtrade.
