5 of Our Favourite Fair Trade Chocolates
Everybody loves chocolate. But not everybody pays attention to how these delectable treats are made or how these chocolate ingredients are sourced. Unfortunately, many chocolates are not slave-free, meaning the cocoa beans to make them come from the most impoverished regions of the world where labour laws are non-existent.
Fair trade chocolates are chocolates made from ethically sourced ingredients like cocoa and sugar. At the same time, they support farmers living in disadvantaged communities by paying a fair price for their products, for this case cocoa beans and sugar.
Fair trade products are made to strict ethical standards, and many of these products are organic meaning they’ve been produced without exposing the environment to harmful chemicals.
It is likely that you’ve never heard of fair trade chocolates before. However, many people may be surprised to find out that some of the chocolate brands they recognise are produced using an ethical sourcing process.
If you’re a chocolate lover, we highly recommended that you pay attention to the ingredients in your favourite chocolate bar. You should switch to fair trade chocolates.
