A farmer receives about 4% of the cost of a chocolate bar. For a cocoa farmer to get close to a living income, 100g of milk (30%) chocolate would cost about 12 cents more. According to the CSIRO, an average Australian eats 32kgs of chocolate a year and we are increasingly eating dark (60% - 80%) chocolate. We calculate we would need to pay $60 more per year for their chocolate, in order for a cocoa farmer to get close to earning a living income.
We are asking you to donate this amount to STOP THE TRAFFK as your chocolate offset. We will use your donation to campaign and partner with chocolate companies and producers to raise farmer’s incomes.
