what score does green & blacks get then?

I've never heard of alter eco.... I take that back. I just went to their website ( http://www.altereco-usa.com/main.php ) and their quinoa looks familiar. but I haven't seen their chocolate in the store.

Meg Dunn If it makes you feel a bit better, your post alerted me and I checked the box, thus avoiding bothering my fb friends. Not that children working in coca productions is trivial, but I've posted from this cause before. I don't want to spam my friends repeatedly.

I don't understand. Green and Blacks 29% and yet Alter Eco is the answer.

Well Green and Blacks where bought out by Cadbury's which has now been taken over by Craft....so anything credibility is now out the window, I hope that clears things up!!!

never heard of Alter Eco. I think Green & Blacks are now owned by Nestle - not a very nice company at at all.

Buying Fair Trade goods gives the farmers who grow the cocoa a decent amount of money for them to provide financial support to their families for food, clothing, and shelter. If anyone is interested in the topic, The Business of World Hunger, there are anthropologists that specialize in this that can give resources on how to find Fair Trade products and explain Agribusinesses.

Ok, but in defense of my pick, G&B gets a "B" and is in their top five of the only companies to get As or Bs. Plus: I can buy it at my local Kroger.

So many of these kids in Uganda still need a sponsor http://www.auntiesangels.com/beasponsor.htm
All the kids live in unimaginable poverty.
Their daily meals consist of porridge for breakfast, beans and cornmeal for lunch and supper.
This is what they are served at school. At home they get even less or don't eat at all.
They live in mud huts and have no running water or electricity.

Go to our site and choose one to support.
You can write them letters and they will write to you.
It's...

It's such a rewarding thing to do.. Sponsorship of one child is only $15 a month!
They get 2 meals a day at school, an education and a small gift each month.
What can you get with $15? Not much. But to them its life changing!!!

I knew that Green and Blacks have one of their chocolate bars which is Fair Trade, but I hadn't heard of Alter Eco before. Roll on the day when all chocolate is Fair Trade and all companies are getting A+ on this quiz!
