Divine Chocolate was founded by the Ghanaian Kuapa Kokoo Farmers Union (KKFU) – a cooperative of 100,000 cocoa farmers. The cooperative is a key shareholder of the Divine Chocolate business making it the only Fairtrade chocolate company that is co-owned by cocoa farmers. This means smallholder farmers receive a share of the distributable profits from the sale of our chocolate, and a say in how the company is run. As a company founded on Fairtrade principles, Divine Chocolate openly communicates their support for women’s empowerment and gender equality, through distinctive packaging, public campaigns and consumer-orientated events. Their annual reports and online corporate narrative indicates how gender inequality affects rights within the cocoa supply chain, and why it is a priority for the company to tackle this through how they do business as well as any programmes or initiatives they run.
