CocoáFair Organic Chocolate

It’s a scientific fact: chocolate makes you feel good.

CocoàFair was started so you could feel especially good, because not only are you eating a mouthwatering, organic chocolate bar made from the best cocoa beans on earth, but CocoàFair is a social business, meaning that the profits from the company go back into Cape Town’s communities to support local initiatives. So whether you’re enjoying your dark, milk, or white chocolate, you can feel good about the fact that CocoàFair is putting your money to use by paying fair wages to farmers producing the raw materials, creating employment opportunities, and starting projects driven by social innovation that will benefit the development of communities in South Africa.

Why you want CocoàFair chocolate:
• It is the first chocolate factory in Africa that produces the entire chocolate product, from the cocoa bean to the finished bar.
• It’s organic!
• It’s better than fair trade because not only are CocoàFair paying their farmers fair trade prices, but they are also teaming up with them to help them grow and enhance their products.
• It’s a social enterprise, so your money doesn’t go back into someone’s pocket; your money goes right back into supporting the disadvantaged communities around you.
• It’s incredibly delicious!

CocoàFair Vision:
CocoàFair want to combat poverty in Africa with chocolate. Their plan is to set up small-scale enterprises throughout Africa that will provide their chocolate factory in Cape Town with all the raw materials they need to make the best chocolate on earth. They will partner with these enterprises and get their raw materials directly from them so they won’t need any middlemen. This will decrease chocolate prices for you and increase wages for their farmers, creating greater social wealth for all parties involved. They plan on setting up one social enterprise per year (at minimum), financed by CocoàFair’s profits.

So no, none of us should feel guilty for that cocoa, it’s actually quite good for you (without all that sugar, but let’s not go there with my personal habits.) Without further delay, here you go:
