Fair Trade in Ghana

Examples of Fair Trade in Ghana

Fair Trade in Ghana

Ghana has very strong unionised labour to fight for the rights of workers. They have worked well with Fair Trade workers and have enabled Ghana to lead the way with Fair Trade chocolate, pineapples and latterly gold.

Most cocoa farmers in Ghana have never tasted chocolate, but farmers from a Fairtrade-certified cooperative in Ghana own 44% of the Divine chocolate company. Launched in 1998, it went down in history as the first farmer-owned confectionery brand in the UK. Divine is not sold in Ghana, the national chocolate is Kingsbite – it is especially manufactured to cope with the heat and humidity in Ghana where Divine chocolate would just melt!
