Even the Easter bunny stands up for a fair income!

Is the Easter bunny bringing fair chocolate to you and your colleagues this year? Oxfam Fair Trade offers a selection of delicious Easter chocolate of the finest quality, made in the Belgian artisanal tradition and with fair products from the South.

Oxfam Fair Trade collaborates with small local cooperations of cocoa farmers, paying them a fair price. To us that is the bare minimum. And when everyone gets what they are entitled to, chocolate tastes even better, doesn’t it?

What’s Bite to Fight about?

Does a product carry this logo? Then Oxfam Fair Trade pays an extra premium to the cocoa farmers, on top of a world wide applied faire trade price and premium.

This Oxfam premium closes the income gap for our cocoa partners and their families. This way they get a living income for their sustainable work and can gradually build a buffer for tougher times.

What is a living income? For starters, it is a human right. We stand with the farmers in fighting for that right. Today, the average farmer in the Ivory Coast, where Bite to Fight chocolate gets its cocoa, only makes a third of a living income. This gap can only be bridged when the chocolate industry in its entirety is ready to pay a fair price.

A fair income covers:

food

Food

shelter

Housing

services

Essential services

buffer

A security buffer

This results in:

Education

A sustainable environment

A future for the whole family!
