Amazing that chocolate can do such incredible things, change lives and be delicious. The story of Divine Chocolate began in 1997 when Ghanian cocoa farmer’s co-operative called “Kuapa Kokoo” (meaning “good cocoa”) set out to create their own chocolate bar for the mainstream UK market.
Not only do cocoa farmers and their communities receive fair-trade benefits, they also own 45% of Divine Chocolate, allowing them a share in management decision making and a share of profits. Even the packaging reflects the chocolate’s roots, with each ‘Adinkra Symbol’ taken from West African culture. For example, one to the symbols used represents a ‘spiders web’, meaning ‘wisdom and creativity’.
