Waitrose Chocolate Competition

To celebrate the festive season, we've teamed up with Waitrose to give you a chance to win some delicious Fairtrade chocolate.


We've joined forces with Waitrose to give away a delicious selection of festive chocolate-y treats. Waitrose is committed to only sourcing Fairtrade cocoa for all its own-brand chocolate lines. Goodies include a festive chocolate avocado (for the millennial in your life), a range of flavoured chocolate bars and even a special guest appearance from Excitable Edgar himself.

Behind every chunk of chocolate is a farmer who deserves decent pay for their work so they can support themselves and their families. With Fairtrade, they can expect to receive at least the Fairtrade Minimum Price, and the Fairtrade Premium (an additional sum of money) ensures that they also have the means to invest back into their community.

Make sure you keep looking out for the FAIRTRADE Mark when you shop so that farmers and producers can get a fair price for their work, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.

The competition will run on Instagram from Wednesday 18 December to Thursday 19 December 2019.
