Creating a World Where Chocolate is Cherished By Everyone, Including Cocoa Farmers
In March 2017, Divine Chocolate welcomed to the United States Mercy Zaah, a cocoa farmer from Ghana who was visiting as a representative of Kuapa Kokoo, the farmers’ co-op that co-owns Divine Chocolate. She helped commemorate the company’s past decade of achievements in both sales growth and gender equality by participating in key meetings and events. Divine Chocolate and Kuapa Kokoo, both led by women, are pioneering progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 5, which aims to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment. In support of these values, Zaah spoke about how her life is directly impacted by Divine’s commitment to inclusion and giving women cocoa farmers a voice.
