Divine is the only chocolate company in the world which is 100% Fairtrade and owned by cocoa farmers. Kuapa Kokoo owns 44% of Divine Chocolate and receives four income streams from their chocolate company. While Fairtrade ensures farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and additional income to invest in their community, company ownership gives farmers a share of Divine’s profits and a stronger voice in the cocoa industry.
