Divine Chocolate is a global social enterprise driven by a mission. Their mission is to help end exploitation in the cocoa industry, creating a world where farmers thrive and prosper.
Divine exist to help end exploitation in the cocoa industry, they champion the needs of farmers, enabling them to thrive and prosper and together build a sustainable and fair world.
Our business model reflects the belief that producers should earn a share of the profits they help to create. That’s why Kuapa Kokoo Farmers’ Union, a co-operative of over 100,000 cocoa farmers in Ghana, who grow the finest quality cocoa for our everyday and seasonal collections, co-own Divine Chocolate. Their stake in Divine Chocolate is a first in the Fairtrade world.
As a co-owner, the farmers receive a share of the distributable profits from the sale of the chocolate. This means that smallholder farming families are not only sustainably remunerated as suppliers, they are also empowered to invest in their own families, farms and communities.
In addition to the benefits of co-ownership and fairtrade, Divine has supported many projects aimed at the empowerment of women, adult education, and promoting good governance.
