CRS Fair Trade Chocolate
Make the World Sweeter
Would you like to indulge your sweet tooth and support economic justice? Our CRS Fair Trade chocolate partners can help you do just that. Through SERRV and Equal Exchange, you can buy fair trade chocolate for any occasion and know that you’re supporting fair trade cocoa farmers.
Our partners are fully committed to fair trade and ensure that every item they sell meets the highest of both quality and social justice standards. So there’s no guilt involved when you enjoy one of these delicious treats! Your purchases build the market for fair trade cocoa farmers, ensure that no child or forced labor is used, and they make the world a sweeter place for everyone who loves chocolate.

It Tastes Good to Do Good
Show your solidarity with small family farmers abroad! Whether you’re a fan of milk, mint, toffee, nut, caramel or milk chocolate, you’ll find what you’re looking for from our partners. Fair trade isn’t only about paying a fair price to producers; it’s also about honoring the care they put into their crops by producing high quality products. So let that chocolate melt in your mouth and savor the flavor of their hard work! Want to learn more? Check out our resources page for activities, lesson plans and general information.
Your chocolate purchases from our partners at Equal Exchange and SERRV support the livelihoods of cocoa farmers from cooperatives like Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana and CONACADO in the Dominican Republic. When you order, be sure to let them know you’re a CRS Fair Trade customer so that a percentage of your purchase will be donated back to the CRS Fair Trade Fund!
