Cacaofest - Balboa Park  

World Fair Trade Day

May 2015

This was a unique opportunity for Fair Trade San Diego to be a part of this event in Balboa Park for World Fair Trade.  Many people signed up to be a part of the Fair Trade movement in San Diego.  People are becoming more aware of where their food and products are sourced.  People count and especially the women who grow, sew and harvest the products we enjoy every day. 

Divine Chocolate donated samples of their dark chocolate to the event.
Divine is the only Fair Trade chocolate company which is owned by its cocoa farmers.
