Ethically Produced Chocolate Treats from Cocoa Loco
Choosing organic is an easy choice to make if you want to make sure that your food does not contain potentially harmful chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, additives, preservatives and petroleum derivatives. Organic chocolate is made using high quality ingredients free from all harmful chemicals mentioned. Cocoa beans used in making organic chocolate is grown through organic farming, which means cultivating the soil for cocoa trees without the use of pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides. Most big name chocolate brands use non-organic chocolate and contain additives like fructose corn syrup, artificial flavouring and colouring. So eating organic chocolate is not only good for our bodies but on the environment as well.
Cocoa Loco founders Sarah and Rory share Fairtrade’s vision of making cocoa farming sustainable so that cocoa farmers can better provide for themselves and their families. They make sure these farmers are paid fairly for their produce and have decent working conditions. Fairtrade set a fairtrade minimum as a safety net to protect small scale farmers in the event that cocoa bean prices plummet. Cocoa growers also get a fairtrade premium which goes directly to their community to fund social projects like schools, clinics, clean water supply and many more. These initiatives have already changed many lives and for the better. Hopefully, more and more companies join Fairtrade’s mission to improve the lives of farmers and growers from impoverished regions of the world. Buying fairtrade chocolate means the cocoa farmers are paid a premium for their cocoa. This allows farmers to invest in community projects, helping the poorest communities climb out of poverty.
