Fairtrade Fortnight 2019: 25th February – 10th March

Fairtrade Fortnight  25th February – 10th March

Raise the Bar in Cocoa!

She deserves a living income

In spite of producing the raw ingredient for one of our favourite treats – chocolate – the vast majority of cocoa producers fail to gain a living income from their product and continue to live in poverty as they struggle with volatile markets, climate change, and a poor return that means they are unable to invest in their farms.

Fairtrade Fortnight this year sees the launch of a 3-year campaign to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and particularly women working in the sector.
