Divine Chocolate For The Holidays

The Holiday season is upon us! 'Tis the season to treat yourself to delicious chocolates by the fireside. LATF discovered a unique chocolate company called Divine Chocolate, which is the only Fairtrade Chocolate Company in the world that is co-owned by cocoa farmers. Yes... farmers!

In the early 1990s, Nana Frimpong Abebrese began creating a farmer-owned company to help farmers sell their own cocoa in Ghana. Nana was a visionary farmer representative and independent representative of COCOBOD (a Ghanaian government-controlled institution that fixes the buying price for cocoa in Ghana). With the support of Twin Trading, a fairtrade company aiming to support cocoa farmers, Nana and a group of other farmers found ways to ensure the net gains of the company would belong to farmers, farmers could be paid in cash, and fair trade premiums could be invested in social programs.

They launched their first chocolate bar in 1998 and finally launched in the United States on February 14th, 2008! 

Divine Chocolate is as unique as its company history. For the holidays, we recommend:
