Divine Chocolate's founding purpose is to help farmers gain and share of the wealth that they have help create which puts them higher up on the value chain.
Divine benefits small scale cocoa farmers in Ghana. These farmers are members of Kuapa Kokoo, a cooperative that was established in 1993 when cocoa farmers united to negotiate better prices for their crops. Kuapa Kokoo then partnered with the cooperative, Twin Trading, the Body Shop, and Comic Relief to form Divine Chocolate. And in 1998 became the 1st farmer owned chocolatier in the world. Today 85,000 cocoa farmers in Ghana benefit from the sales of Divine chocolates by receiving a premium price for the cocoa and by the funding of wells and schools.
