In last week’s blog post, we took an in-depth look at the issue of food waste. Today we would like to show what you can do personally to prevent the unnecessary waste of food. We have some great tips and recipes from Germany and Ghana!
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!

Imagine if all the food produced worldwide since the beginning of this year was simply thrown away. That would be pretty stupid, wouldn’t it? And an insane waste of labor, money and resources.
But that is exactly what is happening. Every year, a third of the food produced globally simply ends up in the bin. In Germany, we are among the front-runners when it comes to throwing food away. But other countries, such as Ghana, are also struggling with this problem. So let’s talk about it.
We take Earth Day as an opportunity this week to talk about an important and topical issue: Tree planting. Many companies, from social businesses to fast food chains, are nowadays advertising products with planting trees or want to use it as a way to offset their carbon footprint. But what is the real impact of this trend and what should companies and consumers look out for?
