This year Divine is celebrating the people who grow the ingredients and the people who enjoy the chocolate from all over the world. With the new Advent calendar, open each window to reveal ‘Merry Christmas’ in languages from 24 different countries where Divine chocolate is sold, made or where the Fairtrade ingredients are sourced. So if you would like to learn how to say Merry Christmas in Twi from Ghana – read on!
As Divine Chocolate spreads around the globe, more and more chocolate lovers can discover its delicious treats whilst farmers benefit from the Fairtrade price and premium for more of the crops they grow.
This includes Kuapa Kokoo, the co-operative of 85,000 farmers in Ghana who grow all the cocoa in Divine chocolate. They own 44% of the Divine so share in the profits from the chocolate they help to create, as well as the Fairtrade price and premium for their cocoa beans, which they are empowered to invest in their farms, families and communities.
Divine Chocolate also sources Fairtrade sugar from Kasinthula Cane Growers Association in Malawi and Fairtrade vanilla from Madagascar, which is why this year you can learn how to say Merry Christmas in Twi from Ghana, Chichewa from Malawi and Malagasy from Madagascar.
Discover how Christmas is celebrated around the world this Advent, and put a smile on your face with Merry Christmas messages from Africa, Europe and beyond.
