What is fair trade cocoa? with Dianna Lovett of Cocomama

This week on Just a Taste, we spoke with Dianna Lovett, Founder of Cocomama. She told us all about her lifelong love affair with chocolate, and her big-hearted wish for a world in which delicious treats could be enjoyed with more peace of mind. Lovett wanted to create a company that would utilize only ethically responsible cocoa while supporting small-scale farmers.  She traveled the world from West Africa to Central America to find the perfect beans and discovered FUNDOPO, an Organic, Fair Trade cooperative in the Dominican Republic – and from there Cocomama was created.
