Divine celebrates a decade of fairtrade chocolate at the.gallery@oxo

Divine Chocolate is co-owned by Kuapa Kokoo, a co-operative of 45,000 cocoa farmers in Ghana who grow the Fairtrade beans for Divine and Dubble and who share in the profits.

The exhibition at Oxo Tower Wharf brought together a collection of striking images by leading photojournalists giving an insight into the lives of Kuapa Kokoo farmers.

The firm – which has its offices in Gainsford Street near Tower Bridge – now produces nine different bars. The latest is white chocolate with strawberries.

This year Divine has produced a dark chocolate Advent Calendar (2.95).

All Divine products are available from www.ethicalsuperstore.com

The firm will also have a presence at the Ethical Christmas Emporium to be held at the Bargehouse later this month.

Last year managing director Sophi Tranchell won a major award for women in business and the company was named Britain's best social enterprise.
