CHANGING THE WORLD WITH CHOCOLATE!
FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED™
Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company's COCOA and CANE SUGAR is Fair Trade Certified. Fair Trade is one way Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company can make a global impact from its St. Louis headquarters. Purchasing Fair Trade Certified ingredients ensures that the farmers will continue to farm for generations to come. With the Fair Trade premiums our company will pay – the Ivory Coast Farmers will make $200.00 more a metric ton of Cocoa – which nearly doubles their income. In Belize – where Cane Sugar is grown, farmers will make more than $60.00 a metric ton. With Fair Trade, EVERY PURCHASE MATTERS. Funds from the Fair Trade premiums are used to increase product quality, develop infrastructure, train cooperative leadership, bring safe drinking water to villages, establish local health clinics and schools.
