What is the difference between certifications and fairafric?


When you see a certificate on a bar of chocolate, it usually means, that the cocoa was grown by a certified farmer. This farmer receives a premium for the cocoa, how much can be seen below. It does not mean, that the farmer or workers involved in the harvest receive any sort of minimum pay.
The most common certificates are Fairtrade, UTZ and Rainforest Alliance.
