Let’s talk about beans! Cocoa beans are very important for us to be able to produce our chocolate. To ensure that it not only tastes good but also meets the highest organic quality standards, the little beans have to go through a number of processes and inspections before they can be turned into chocolate. Today we would like to show you what the journey of our fairafric beans looks like.
Our premium quality organic chocolate is produced from tree to bar in rural Ghana. This wildly increases Africa's share of the value chain in the chocolate industry.
By not only sourcing the cocoa in Ghana but by producing the chocolate from bean to (wrapped) bar in Ghana, fairafric has a tremendous social impact, with every bar.
70% of the world’s cocoa comes from West Africa, but less than 1% of the world’s chocolate is made there. We are changing this system.
We pay the highest cocoa premiums in West Africa: 600 USD per ton of cocoa. Thus, the farmers can finance second and third degree education for their kids.
We are fairafric - a German-Ghanaian social business that is revolutionizing the chocolate world. Africa's raw materials have always been used primarily for the production of goods in the Global North. That is why it is important to us to go one step further, to process raw materials locally and to transfer the added value as far as possible to Africa. In order to achieve this goal, we produce world-class chocolate in Ghana - from tree to bar. In doing so, we create jobs outside agriculture and multiply local income in the country of cocoa origin. With every purchase of fairafric you help to create qualified jobs in Africa, which in turn lead to higher income, better access to higher education and health care. No development aid, but a real opportunity. Be a part of it!

Last week, we have already announced it in our newsletter: fairafric now has an extension officer! Mubarak will make sure that child labor will not be an issue on the farms where fairafric’s cocoa is harvested. Due to this occasion we would like to tell you more about child labor in the cocoa sector and explain how we prevent it.
We love chocolate. You have probably noticed that by now. And we are not the only ones who do. Chocolate consumption is increasing worldwide and so is the demand for cocoa. However, cocoa farmers are increasingly experiencing declining yields and are struggling with the consequences of climate change. In this blog post, you will learn how protecting biodiversity can help to overcome these challenges and what our hunger for chocolate has to do with mosquitoes.
