You have always been wondering what's going on in a chocolate brand office? And you also always wanted to know how ecologically the employees of the perhaps fairest chocolate in the world live? Then why don’t you accompany us to our office in Munich for a day and see what we are doing (apart from eating chocolate)?
Marios Georgiadis has visited our production partner Niche Cocoa in Tema as well as our cocoa farmers in Suhum. He has recorded his impressions in a captivating travel report. Marios Georgiadis was born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus. He studied Hotel and Tourism Management at SSTH, Chur, Switzerland and has served as a hotel director on cruise ships for 19 years. He now works from home in recruitment.
Finally, we have some good news regarding our coconut-palm tree project: This May we gave our Ghanaian farmers the first load of coconut-palm tree seedlings.
We have visited Yayra Glover to discuss our collaboration and meet some of their farmers and listen to their stories a couple of days ago. We have heard heart warming stories from them and are more convinced then ever, that the hard work of Yayra and his team is really paying for their member farmers.
Last year we planted 7,000 trees near Kumasi that will be very beneficial to farmers in different ways. Most will wildly increase soil health and fertility while some can be used to provide construction material and regrow thereafter.
