Other stuff here Other stuff here Other stuff here I am doing some weeding on the farm Here I am uprooting the weeds. This is important because the dry cocoa leaves fall to become manure, so when I uproot the weeds it gives a way for the dry leaves to reach the ground. SLIDE TITLE HERE

Other stuff here My message to young people in the UK is that you should continue in the good way you have been doing and support Fairtrade. And also, tell the shops and supermarkets in the UK to stock more Fairtrade chocolate. So What is Divines Social Mission? Improving the lives of cocoa farmers Divine Chocolates mission is to improve the lives of West African cocoa farmers by creating and selling chocolate bars

that allow the farmers to earn more from the sale of those chocolate bars The Divine Story Begins with cocoa farmers in Africa . . . Ghanaian cocoa farmers typically earn less than 1 each day

Farmers have little control over the price they get for their cocoa beans Wanting to gain more control, farmers pooled resources to create a co-operative of cocoa farmers, known as the Kuapa Kokoo

Farmers Union Kuapa Kokoo means good cocoa farmer in Twi, the language of the cocoa farmers The Divine Story The Kuapa Kokoo Farmers Union

They produce nearly 1% of world cocoa output Around 70% of their cocoa beans are sold to Fairtrade buyers The Fairtrade market is not yet large enough for them to be able to sell all their beans this way

As demand for Fairtrade products rise farmers will be able to sell more of their crop through Fairtrade channels The Kuapa Kokoo slogan , Pa Pa Paa, means best of the best In 1997 Kuapa Kokoo made the major and innovative decision to set up a chocolate company in the UK in order to get more value from

their cocoa The Divine Story How is the Divine business model different? Partnership based Committed to Fairtrade Ownership The TDA Chocolate Title/Theme: A Love that

Poem Competition Grows Rules: Poems must be about the theme: A Love that Grows This is the Divine Poetry Competition so make sure you only mention Divine Chocolate and not other chocolate products Try to think beyond common stereotypes of developing countries. Fair Trade is about
