Cocoa Farmer Visit Promotes Fair Trade

Nicholas Kwame Adjei-Gyan from Kuapa Kokoo toured Devon in March 2010 as part of Fair Trade Fortnight, providing an insight into the workings of the 45,000+ cocoa cooperative in Ghana.

Plymouth was the first city in the South West to achieve the status of 'Fair Trade City' and the Kuapo Cocoa Co-operative has worked closely with the Ghana Link since its inception.

This together with the VSO Community Xchange has provided a good foundation for gaining an insight into the commerce within each city.
