Fair Trade Chocolate

According to Green America: “Cocoa is a $16 billion a year industry, but the average annual revenue the cocoa farmers receives is between $30 and $110 per household. The Fair Trade certification for chocolate has given over 42,000 cocoa farmers in West Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas a decent price for their crop. Since 90% of the world’s cocoa is grown on small family farms of 12 acres or less, Fair Trade cocoa is directly improving the standard of living for farmers in the poorest regions of the world.”  Learn more about the value of Fair Trade Certified Chocolate here.
