Divine Chocolate

Divine Chocolate began back in 1997, when the Kuapa Kokoo cocoa farmers’ cooperative in Ghana voted at their AGM to set up a chocolate company in order to access the valuable chocolate market, and a year later the first Divine bar was launched in the UK.

Set up with the support of Twin Trading, Body Shop, Christian Aid and Comic Relief, the company was established with the aim to improve the livelihood of smallholder cocoa farmers. Today Divine is successfully proving that an international company creating delicious chocolate can also be farmer-owned, with fair and dignified trading relations at its heart. Everything Divine does aims to empower farmers, empower chocolate lovers and change the way that business is done. To this end Divine has successfully both grown sales to over £12 million with the expansion of Divine USA and has been at the forefront of raising consumer, business and government awareness about the need for fairer trade. Furthermore, Kuapa Kokoo now owns the largest share of Divine, meaning they also share in the profits and a say in the running of the company.
