With news of child labor, human trafficking and slavery in the cocoa farming industry even the most devoted chocaholic can hesitate when reaching for that chocolate bar.

The LWR Chocolate project offers a sweet alternative: Fair Trade chocolate from Divine Chocolate.

With our Fair Trade partner, SERRV, the LWR Chocolate Project delivers high quality Fair Trade chocolate directly from the Kuapa Kokoo cocoa farmer’s association in Ghana. And the farmers of Kuapa Kokoo have an ownership stake in Divine Chocolate and sit on the Board of Directors so they are truly involved with your chocolate from bean to bar.

Divine Chocolate & Kuapa Kokoo

“Pa pa paa. (The best of the best.)”

— Kuapa Kokoo’s motto.

Kuapa Kokoo (“Good Cocoa Farmers Company” in the local Twi language) is a democratically operated, Fair Trade Certified cooperative in Ghana, West Africa.

Kuapa Kokoo’s 45,000 members use environmentally responsible farming techniques and oppose child labor. They receive a fair price on their cocoa beans and spread the wealth by investing in their communities. By doing so, they set a good example — and are a source of knowledge — for other farmers.

Kuapa Kokoo is part owner of Divine Chocolate, making it the first ever farmer-owned brand of chocolate. Kuapa Kokoo supplies the cocoa, and Divine processes the chocolate and brings it to market.

Because we believe so strongly in our work with Kuapa Kokoo, LWR also owns shares of Divine Chocolate and has a voice on their Board of Directors.
