Fairtrade Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is a wonderful thing.  The simple combination of warm milk with molten chocolate creates a drink that’s beloved by millions.  But if you’re the sort of person who enjoys hot chocolate, then you’ll want to do so with the knowledge that your drink has been ethically sourced, which is exactly what you will find with the Fairtrade hot chocolates and cocoas available here.

Growing quality cocoa requires high temperatures, and little seasonal variation in climate.  For this reason, most of the world’s cocoa comes from countries within twenty latitudinal degrees of the equator – and much of that comes from West Africa.  Unfortunately, worker’s rights tend to fall far down the producer’s priorities and all too often the supply chain is blighted by exploitation.

That’s where organisations like Fairtrade come in.  It’s their role to ensure farmers and workers receive a fair price for their labour, and funds to develop their businesses to make them more efficient, sustainable and – above all – ethical.  Fairtrade is 50% owned by the workers and farmers on whose behalf it works.  They all have a say in how the organisation operates, through a series of democratic organisations of small-hold farmers, which make local decisions.

Through this consultative, bottom-up approach, Fairtrade cocoa farmers have been empowered – and lovers of hot chocolate are able to enjoy Fairtrade hot chocolate mix in the knowledge that it’s been ethically obtained.  On this page you’ll find all of our Fairtrade hot chocolate – be sure to look through and select the one that’s right for you!
