Win-win with Saint Nicholas. Delicious chocolate with fair cocoa!
Saint Nicholas chocolates you can enjoy to the fullest. Because: it’s of the best quality, made according to Belgian tradition… and fair trade. You’ll be doing yourself, your colleagues, and our cocoa partners a great favour.
Those who’ve been good get fair-trade chocolate. Because Saint Nicholas not only loves ‘goodies’; he also stands up for a living income.
The cocoa in this Bite to Fight chocolate comes from our Ivorian partner CPR Canaan. Oxfam Fair Trade pays an extra premium for the cocoa in addition to the fair-trade price and premium. The cocoa cooperative sustainably invests this extra premium. This is how they achieve a living income for each family together. A living income is a human right. It covers the cost of essentials such as food, rent, education, healthcare, etc. and it provides a bit of a nest egg.
When you choose Bite to Fight chocolate, you are contributing directly to a sustainable future for farmers and their families.
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:
A security buffer
This results in:
A sustainable environment
A future for the whole family!
