Being Green - 10 April 2020
Easter is said to be the peak holiday for chocolate sales around the world, beating even Valentine’s Day and Christmas. In Being Green this week, Glynis Crook asks just how environmentally friendly your favourite slab is. Do you know where the cocoa is sourced, are the farmers paid a fair price, and do they use sustainable farming methods? She speaks to Antonino Allegra, the head chocolate-maker at local brand, Afrikoa, which sources its organic cacao beans directly from farmers in Tanzania.
