Fair trade chocolate is chocolate with a conscience, meaning we can enjoy the luxury of chocolate whilst making a difference to the life of third-world producers at the same time. By buying fair trade, we are guaranteeing a fair price for the cocoa and sugar farmers in developing countries, ensuring they have a stable economic future.
Organic Times uses only 100% certified organic chocolate that is grown and purchased through the “Hand-in-Hand” programme, named so, as it is only by working hand-in-hand with these co-operative farmers that we can help improve the quality of life in their communities. “Hand-in-Hand” gives back to the farmers that practice sustainable farming through education, health and environmental programmes and ensures farmers are paid based on a fair pricing structure that is independent from the fluctuating world market.
Organics and fair trade are inextricably linked: what’s better for the planet has to be better for the people working on it. Organic Times is committed to producing quality organic products and contributing to an ecologically sustainable and humane world.
