I like dark chocolate. They call it bittersweet because it has less sugar.
The lives of many chocolate farmers are bitter.
Chocolate is a very labor intensive crop. According to the non-profit Oxfam America, cocoa farmers around the world on average typically make even less – about three percent of the price of a chocolate bar. Human trafficking is involved in the chocolate trade. Knowing that can take all the sweetness out chocolate.
Fair trade chocolate benefits small farmers who run their own co-opts and profits are put make into the community.
You can buy Fair trade chocolate through Lutheran World Relief
