Stage 10: Selling in shops


What are the problems cocoa farmers face?

Price of cocoa keeps going up and down on the world market = no long term security

Very low pay: farmers only receive a fraction of the price paid for each chocolate bar

Farming equipment, food, medicine etc are very expensive

Changing to produce other crops is difficult

Scales are often ‘fixed’ to show a higher reading than is true

Children often have to work to bring in extra income for farming families

Machetes and pesticides can be very dangerous.


How does Fairtrade help?

Long term contracts

Protects the environment

A minimum price

The “Fairtrade Premium”

Working together in “cooperatives”

No child labour

Better working conditions

Able to borrow money safely


"Fairtrade is good to the farmer and makes us happy. We would like to sell more cocoa to Fairtrade so more farmers can taste a better life."

Comfort Kwaasibea, cocoa farmer.


“We can proudly take good care of ourselves and our children... because of Fairtrade we can stand on our own because we are self sufficient.”

Akua Gyamfua, cocoa farmer

and stall holder.


CHOCOLATE TASTING!!


How to taste chocolate

  • Smell the chocolate

  • Check the appearance
