FAIR TRADE COCOA

Independent family cocoa farmers produce most of the world’s cocoa. At Rogers’ Chocolates, we have always recognized the need and have been committed to support initiatives that provide a better livelihood to cocoa farmers in developing nations. For us, this means a Fair Trade investment is made so farmers and their communities have more financial and social capital so their families, farms and communities can thrive.

Up until April 1 2016, we met our commitment by working exclusively with chocolate suppliers who are members of the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) and committed to delivering essential support to ensure quality of life for farmers through sustainable cocoa growing practices and fair pricing policies.

Today we are proud to advise you that we have taken our commitment to support the cocoa farmers to a much higher level. On March 22, 2016 we set an objective to use 100% Fair Trade Certified Cocoa in all products we sell. Today, we are close to achieving our objective with over 98% of all chocolate products we sell being Fair Trade Certified. Now, with every purchase of Rogers’ Chocolates you are ensuring farmers get a fairer deal. You are helping to keep their children in school, improve their communities, protect the environment and grow the best quality products for all of us.

Our employees have always produced the best tasting chocolates in the world and now that taste just got a little better. While it will take us a little time to change all of our packaging, look for the words “Certified Fair Trade” and the Fair Trade Logo on our products and feel good that your purchase supports a better world.

Steeped in tradition and rich with history

The first Rogers' chocolates were made in 1885 by Charles "Candy" Rogers in the back of his grocery store in Victoria, B.C. He quickly became a popular man. In 1891, Rogers expanded his chocolate operation to the company's current heritage storefront on Government Street in Victoria and the rest, as they say, is history.
