My Weekly - - Our Life -

Gath­er­ing, fer­ment­ing, husk­ing, dry­ing, roast­ing, crush­ing, grind­ing... these are just a few of the steps be­fore choco­late be­comes our favourite treat, and it all starts with gath­er­ing the pods from the trees in a del­i­cate process in­volv­ing a sharp knife – of­ten done by women! To make sure our love of choco­late in Choco­late Week ben­e­fits our sis­ters over­seas, look out for Fair­trade choco­late in Sains­bury, the Co-op and Star­bucks!
