Most cocoa farmers do not earn enough to cover their basic needs. This is in part due to unreliable market prices and an unfair supply chain.

In recent years, the price of cocoa beans has slumped. Disease and age are damaging cocoa trees, while climate change is making crops harder to grow.

What difference does choosing Fairtrade make?

When you choose Fairtrade chocolate, you know that farmers in places like Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana are getting a fairer price for their cocoa.

Farmers and workers receive the Fairtrade Minimum Price for their crop. It means they are more likely to be able to cover household costs like education, food and healthcare.

They also receive an additional Fairtrade Premium, which they can choose to invest in their communities and to fight the effects of climate change.
