Fair Trade Treat

Cadbury Going Fair Trade

One of the world’s top-selling chocolate makers, Cadbury, is set to become a fair trade dealer later this year, giving a boost to thousands of cocoa farmers in Africa.

Fair trade products try to make sure farmers from poorer countries get the best price for their goods.

Cadbury said getting fair trade status for its chocolate would triple the amount of fair trade cocoa it gets from Ghana – a country in Africa – to about 15,000 tons a year.


The move is part of the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership, which is a multi-million-dollar program designed to help cocoa farming communities over the next 10 years.


Last year, hundreds of millions of dollars were spent on fair trade products like coffee, bananas and sugar.
