Haworth Primary School pupils enjoy a Fairtrade treat
8:00am Monday 17th March 2014 in News
Pupils enjoyed an all-expenses-paid trip to the world’s first international Fair Trade Visitor Centre.
Youngsters from Haworth Primary School received a traditional Ghanaian-style welcome when they arrived at the centre in Garstang, which is called The Fig Tree.
The children made their own bars of Fairtrade chocolate, using cocoa from the town of New Koforidua, in Ghana.
Pupils selected cocoa beans, roasted them and followed all the other processes to make them into chocolate bars. They even designed their own wrappers.
Tracy Roe, food leader at Haworth Primary, said: “This was an amazing experience for the children. They really came to terms with what Fairtrade means, not just money to the farmers, but having basic needs met, such as medical provision, education and water.”
