Green & Black chocolate, which has always been organic, is now going Fairtrade in the USA and the world by the end of the year. Great news for the Fairtrade farmers and for us, as ethical chocolate eaters.
For 15 years they have had one line, Maya chocolate, but now they are expanding the whole line to be completely Fairtrade. They will be working with farmers and co-operatives in the Dominican Republic to get the beans. This helps the 36,000 farmers because they get job security and educational and health benefits for their families.
