We got some information about the Fair Trade of chocolate
The chocolate is made from Cocoa, and Cocoa was first planted in Ghana in 1879. Ghana is renowned for the quality of its cocoa beans.
Cocoa accounts for 28% of Ghana’s foreign exchange earnings and 57% of total agricultural exports. In 2006, Ghana exported 358,000 tonnes of cocoa worth $ 1.06bn making it the second most important export commodity after gold. Kuapa Kokoo is a cocoa-growing co-operative set up in 1993 in response to the partial liberalisation of the cocoa sector in Ghana. It is the only farmer-owned organisation among the private companies that have been granted government licences to trade cocoa. In this marketing role, Kuapa Kokoo purchases cocoa from members and other farmers on behalf of the state-run cocoa board which controls all exports. Kuapa Kokoo now represents almost 50,000 small-scale cocoa growers and in 2008/09 sold 27% of production to the Fairtrade market. About the survey questionnaires
