We are committed to the protection of people and the environment. Therefore we assure you that along the entire supply chain of fairafric we work according to the strictest guidelines. Currently we are certified organic and are a recognized supplier of the Fair Trade Shop Confederation (Weltladendachverband).
That is why certifications are important to us...
You as customers have more power than you actually think. Every time you buy a bar of chocolate, you make a choice. We want to encourage you to ask critically for details about the working conditions and interrelationships along the entire supply chain of your favorite products. fairafric is always available to answer your questions.
About 1/3 of the entire global cocoa production is certified by a sustainability label. However, child labor, rainforest deforestation and life below the poverty line are still major challenges in West Africa, which even well-known certifications could not solve.
We are convinced that only sustainable economic activity at eye level in conjunction with strict environmental protection requirements have a future. That is why we are taking a decisive step forward in organic cocoa cultivation in cooperation with Yayra Glover Limited:
We stand for ecological agriculture - fair to humans & nature.
Sourcing only the best and most sustainable organic ingredients, especially in Africa, is not an easy task, why do we do it?
Fully traceable back to the farm
What's the difference?
The cocoa for your everyday chocolate is sourced through different stages with the cocoa changing hands many times before the chocolate producer eventually turns it into chocolate. In most cases you can only identify the country of origin with certainty.
Only using organic beans does also mean that we know where the beans are from as this is integral part of the certification. Fairafric works with only 861 farmers of whom we know that they have been trained in an exceptional manner. The quality of their cocoa, which we examine every time, is simply outstanding.
That's how fairafric has a positive impact along the value chain with every single bar!
