Year 6 attended a Fairtrade conference on Friday 10th March about Divine chocolate. Only 1% of the cocoa beans grown in the world are sold through Fairtrade. They learnt how cocoa beans were produced in Ghana and how a co-operative of 85,000 farmers got together and now produce cocoa beans for their own chocolate. This is called Divine and it is produced in Switzerland. Parents joined the pupils for the conference and a 'good time was had by all' especially the chocolate tasting.
