A typical cocoa farmer in Cote d’Ivoire lives on around 74p a day. Many live in poverty. For women the situation is even worse, carrying a large part of the farming and domestic burden, but often having fewer rights than men. ‘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. There are 2 versions of this film, one is 11 minutes (aimed at age 11+) and the other version is 8 minutes long (aimed at age 7+) Full length version available here
