Cadbury receives Fair Trade certification

Cadbury has announced that Cadbury Dairy Milk will soon be receiving Fair Trade certification in Canada. This is the largest and first major confectionery brand in Canada to receive the certification.

Fair Trade chocolate means that more than 20 million Fair Trade bars will be in virtually every Canadian grocery store, gas station, convenience shop, depanier and corner retailer by the summer of 2010. By moving to Fair Trade certification, Cadbury is committing to fair cocoa production; sustainability of current and new crops; and an improved quality of life for cocoa farmers, their families and communities.
