What a fantastic start to Fairtrade Fortnight!
Fairtrade companies, supporters, producers, farmers, Londoners and everyone in between gathered together on the Thames on London’s Southbank to celebrate the launch of Fairtrade Fortnight with a Fairtrade Fairground.
Divine Chocolate was giving away free delicious tasters of chocolate and were joined by a Henna Tattooist who was giving free Adinkra symbol Henna tattoos (the Ghanaian symbols which feature on the Divine packaging). The two Ghanaian cocoa farmers from Kuapa Kokoo, the cooperative of farmers which co-owns Divine Chocolate, had flown into Heathrow that morning and met visitors to the stall and telling everyone about the difference Fairtrade is making to them and their communities. The weather was glorious and the event was a lot of fun thanks to dancing Fairtrade bananas, a walking talking Dubble bar, games and rides for the children and lots of wonderful Fairtrade samples to try.
Happy Fairtrade Fortnight everyone
From everyone at Divine Chocolate and Kuapa Kokoo
