Geography - Where does our food come from?

Ministry of Chocolate Workshop

Tuesday 29th September


We learnt that our chocolate bar starts its journey as a cocoa bean growing on a cocoa tree in hot and humid countries which lie near to the Equator.

The cocoa beans farmers work extremely hard to harvest the beans, pack them and weigh them ready to be shipped to chocolate factories in other continents.

They haven’t always got a fair price for their cocoa beans, that’s were the Fairtrade organisation comes in.

A special visitor from ‘The Ministry of Chocolate’ taught us that with the help of Fairtrade, the cocoa farmers are never cheated and receive a fair price for the produce that they sell.

When you eat chocolate, you are sharing a yummy gift from cocoa farmers around the world. Chocolate brings the world together!
