fairafric is going climate posititve!

fairafric wird klimapositiv!

We say goodbye to milk chocolate and hello to climate positivity!

The production of chocolates, environmental impacts cannot (yet) be avoided. That's why we offset all CO2 emissions that occur. To do this, we invest in collaboration with Natureoffice in a natural forest reforestation project in Togo. In the years 2021-2023, we offset more than 900 tons of CO2 in this way.

How does fairafric become climate positive?

For more than 8 years, fairafric has been producing our chocolate in a climate-neutral manner since our inception. In 2024, we want to take the next step - we want to become climate positive! 🌍 In the following, we explain how we plan to achieve this goal.

1. Solar-driven production

An essential role in our production is played by our solar-powered factory. Since early 2021, the entire roof of our chocolate factory has been covered with 578 solar panels. On average, this solar installation generates approximately 16,500.25 kWh per month. Fairafric also makes the transportation of chocolate to Europe as climate-friendly as possible. Specifically, we use ships instead of airplanes, transporting from the port city of Tema to Hamburg. The refrigerated container is maintained at 16 degrees Celsius, and we offset the CO2 emissions with NatureOffice.

2.Transition to a 100% vegan product range.

Starting from the end of 2023, we ceased the production of milk chocolate for the European market, thus completely eliminating animal products from our offerings. Throughout the year 2024, the remaining milk chocolates will be sold out. We are especially delighted by the successful launch of our vegan bar, the Creamy Cashew. Strengthened by this positive feedback, we will introduce new alternative milk chocolates to the market in the future - another significant milestone in significantly reducing our CO2 footprint.

3. Transition to dynamic Agroforestry 

Starting this year, we are sourcing our organic cocoa from Dynamic Agroforestry Farms (DAF) in Ghana. The goal is to create a symbiosis of different complementary trees and plants. These not only generate much more biomass and sequester more CO2 than we emit in the entire value chain but also contribute to multiplying the incomes of our cocoa farmers.
