This light, vegan chocolate has a cocoa content of 42 percent and is refined with a cream made from cashews from gebana Burkina Faso. The cream gives the chocolate a velvety-soft texture with a mouthfeel like milk chocolate. But you can't taste the cashews. Like all fairafric chocolate bars, this one is made entirely in Ghana. The German company has been in Ghana since 2016 and in 2020 it opened a new solar-powered factory with almost 100 employees. One bar weighs 80 grams.
Allergens: may contain traces of dairy products, almonds and hazelnuts.
*From certified organic agriculture.
FARMER FROM NSUTA WAWASE, GHANA
At my age, it's difficult to run a farm.
"I'm a widow and have 4 sons, 4 daughters and 31 grandchildren. Our main income comes from farming and trade," says Helina Asare. Besides cocoa beans, Helina and her family grow cassava, plantains, bananas and maize. They also keep a few goats. "I can live off the sale of my products. But I must say that it's a tremendous amount of work running a farm, especially at my age. I don't have enough money to support my whole family, especially my grandchildren. I hope that one day things will get better."
