Fair Trade Sales

Sunday, February 19, 2017 between Services

PRODUCTS of the MONTH:  It's cocoa time again! The February Fair Trade Sale will feature four varieties of cocoa, including our newest addition, Organic Spicy Hot Cocoa. This "cocoa with a kick" contains cinnamon and cayenne pepper!  Additionally, we will have Organic Dark Hot Chocolate (with real ground chocolate in the mix), Organic Hot Cocoa Mix (rich and flavorful), and Organic Baking Cocoa (great for making baked goods or cocoa from scratch).

PERSPECTIVE: “But what’s the best thing about our cocoa?  It’s the story – about farmer ownership, empowerment and an evolving supply chain. It starts in the Dominican Republic, where cacao trees grow abundantly in the tropical climate and cocoa is a huge industry. Historically, this industry has been dominated by 4 dominant exporters, and farmers have had little involvement beyond growing, harvesting and selling to intermediaries.  

That’s where CONACADO (The National Confederation of Dominican Cacao Producers) has been blazing a trail since 1985. It began as a development project during a low in the global cocoa market, to study how cacao fermentation techniques could improve the quality of cacao production. Before then, 100% of Dominican cacao production was low-quality unfermented beans, which could be sold cheaply to the United States. But after successfully proving that higher quality, fermented cacao could increase income to small farmers, CONACADO expanded its work to educate farmers on these techniques and organize them into regional associations, or bloques. Then, the co-operative entered a commercialization phase of the project and began seeking out niche markets for their unique, high quality cacao." Quoted from the Equal Exchange's Web Site.

SHOP FAIR TRADE:  Sunday, February 19 between Services on the patio. Buy fairly traded, organic coffee, tea, chocolate and olive oil. Support small-scale, organic farmers with your purchases. We look forward to seeing you under the canopy!
