It's a hot summer day and we will forgive you for thinking more about ice creams and froyos than chocolate. But if you, like us, are a bit chocolate obsessed, we thought you'd might be interested in which bars and truffles out there can help you satisfy that sweet tooth in a more sustainable way through fairtrade.
What is fairtrade?
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Read more about it on the Fairtrade Foundation website.
Mars owned Maltesers have hit UK shelves with a fairtrade certification, in the same year that the UK’s 3rd largest chocolate brand celebrates its 75th anniversary. This is another milestone in the brand’s journey towards Mars achieving 100% certified cocoa. It is estimated that the move will contribute in excess of $1 million in annual fairtrade premium funds for cocoa farmers to invest in their farms, businesses and communities. (RRP: £2.09/135g)
