The Story of Chocolate: Unwrapping the Bar


‘The Story of Chocolate: Unwrapping the Bar’  looks at the unfairness at the heart of the chocolate industry and how Fairtrade is working towards a living income for cocoa farmers. It specifically focuses on women cocoa farmers and the role of women in community development.

This film is 11 minutes 48 seconds and there is a shorter version (8 minutes) here. We would recommend the longer version for a KS3 lesson about cocoa, global trade and gender empowerment.

Although many of us cannot be together in schools right now, we can still learn about Fairtrade together at home. Get in touch to tell us about your activities via email ( or Twitter. Please tag @FairtradeUKEd and use the hashtag #FairtradeTogether on social media posts!
