A cocoa cooperative in Ghana owns 44% of Divine Chocolate and receives four income streams from their chocolate company.
- The first is the income from their cocoa bought at the guaranteed minimum Fairtrade price
- The second is an additional premium of $200 per tonne, which the cooperative invests in their own projects
- The third comes from Divine's Producer Support & Development Fund (2% of Divine's turnover) which is invested in the cooperative's most progressive programmes
- And last but certainly not least,as the biggest shareholder in Divine Chocolate, the cooperative also receives 44% of any distributed profit
