Cocoa Farmers for Divine Chocolate visit Budgen Thorntons in Crouch End

Celebration of Divine Chocolate for Fairtrade Fortnight 2013


On Monday 4th March 2013 Mary Appiah and Esther Mintah Ephraim, cocoa farmers from Kuapo Kokoo in Ghana visited Crouch End. After admiring the clocktower with Wendy from Divine Chocolate, they headed for the Community Hub in Budgens where they were greeted by a crowd of children from Stroud Green Primary School who were ready and eager to hear how we get from the huge cocoa pod to the delicious Divine Chocolate.

Some of them held a cocoa pod and even crunched some dried cocoa beans but most of all they enjoyed tasting the chocolate.  Duringthe hour in Budgens there were more visitors, this time from St Gilda's and also shoppers interested to see what was going on oin the middle of their supermarket.
