Divine Chocolate has added two limited edition flavours to its range this Christmas: dark chocolate with pear and ginger and milk chocolate with spiced toffee apple.
As with all of its regular chocolate products, these special editions are made with Fairtrade cocoa from Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana, the co-operative that owns 45% of Divine.
Kuapa Kokoo, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, has 65,000 cocoa farmer members who benefit from the Fairtrade premium on the sale of their beans and receive a 45% share of Divine’s distributable profits. This gives them more economic stability and a greater voice in the industry.
Divine has also released a luxury Belgian chocolate collection this Christmas – a boxed selection of 16 milk and dark chocolates with soft or praline centres in a variety of different flavours, including hazelnut crisp and ginger praline.
“We are very proud of this collection,” says Divine’s Charlotte Borger, “and have dedicated time to sourcing the ingredients to ensure they are all high quality and palm oil-free.”
This year’s Christmas range also includes: milk chocolate festive shapes; after dinner thins; dark, milk and white chocolate stars; and dark and milk chocolate coins.
