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.

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.
