Mr. Aduhene-Tano Kojo is the Recorder and Area president of the Fenaso-Domeabra Kuapa Kokoo Co-op in the Bekwai Area of Ghana. Mr. Kojo has been a member of Kuapa Kokoo since 1996 where he harvests about 10 bags of cocoa per year.

Taste Divine Chocolate!

At the heart of Divine's heavenly tasting chocolate there is a unique story. Not only do the Kuapa Kokoo farmers' receive a Fairtrade price for their cocoa, but they also own 45% of the company, therefore they have a direct influence over how the company is run and share in the profits from the chocolate.

Come hear about the direct benefits of Fair Trade!
