Divine Chocolate is the only chocolate company in the world which is 100% Fairtrade and co-owned by the farmers. Kuapa Kokoo is a co-operative of over 80,000 cocoa farmers in Ghana and they are the largest shareholder in Divine, with a 44% share in the company.
While Fairtrade ensures farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and additional income to invest in their community, company ownership gives farmers a share of Divine’s profits and a stronger voice in the cocoa industry. Now that’s honest, ethical business!
Inside, every Divine wrapper tells a story, with a chocolate recipe or information about one of the farmers who take a real pride in the quality of their cocoa and the company they co-own.
Why do we love Divine?
Because they're putting people first; Divine Chocolate’s mission is to "improve the livelihood of smallholder cocoa producers in West Africa by establishing their own branded proposition in the UK chocolate market..." so more people get a share in the wealth they’ve helped to create.
As part of the Elevator competition Divine are giving away three Milk Chocolate Collection packs :)
