    To the Spanish Sol means sun, to the French the earth and is phonetically “soul” in English. All of which are the inspiration behind, ChocoSol chocolate. The energy of the sun roasts the raw cacao bean, nurtures the chocolate’s earth and the final solid chocolate product feeds our souls.

    Mainstream Fair Trade

    hillary — 4 years ago

    Have your say

    Would you buy Cadbury knowing they have a fair trade chocolate bar?

    • Maybe


    • Yes


    • No


    So, why all the buzz about fair trade? It's about a quality product making it's way to you with the satisfaction of knowing the farmer (who harvested that chocolate from bean to bar) gets a proper wage for his or her work. Guilt-free chocolate indulgence! Choco-locate has provided you with several local options for fair trade products in your city. But the biggest complaint is that some consumers want the nostalgic childhood chocolate they grew up on. Well, finally that too can be a fair trade product.

    Fair trade bars
    Chocolate giants are finally dipping into the world of Ethical chocolate. Cadbury Canada is expanding the Fair Trade chocolate market in Canada by declaring all products sold in Canada (from its Dairy Milk line) will have the Official Fair Trade Certified logo. This doubles the amount of Fair Trade certified chocolate sold in Canada!
    James is a fair trade certified cocoa farmer from Ghana. Choco-locate was lucky enough to sit down with James at a recent event in Dundas Square to hear first hand how this change will affect his family and community in Ghana.

'Film tells the not-so-sweet side of chocolate'

What do you think of when you think of chocolate? Decadence? Dieting? An industry rife with exploitation and labour abuses?

Toronto director Michael Allcock offers a peek at the various sides of chocolate in the new documentary Semisweet: Life In Chocolate, airing on TVO on June 6. The film tells four stories – of Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, two raw food enthusiasts; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” and more.

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
