Divine Chocolate Tasting
Global Exchange Fair Trade Store
DATE: Tuesday, May 4th
TIME: 5-7pm


Meet a Fair Trade Chocolate Farmer!
Mr. Aduhene-Tano Kojo is the Recorder and Area president of the Fenaso-Domeabra
Kuapa Kokoo Co-op in the Bekwai Area of Ghana. Mr. Kojo has been a member of
Kuapa Kokoo since 1996 where he harvests about 10 bags of cocoa per year. Learn
how Fair Trade has helped him to send his children to school and has benefited his
whole community.

Taste Divine Chocolate!
At the heart of Divine’s heavenly tasting chocolate there is a unique story. Not only do
the Kuapa Kokoo’s farmers receive a Fair Trade price for their cocoa, but they also
own 45% of the company, therefore they have a direct influence over how the
company is run and share in the profits from the chocolate.
