On 7 December, Nestle announced that their Kit Kat chocolate confectionery product is going Fairtrade in the UK and Ireland as a breakthrough for cocoa farmers in Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast).
The move which will kick off in mid-January 2010, will benefit thousands of farmers in Côte d’Ivoire who as well as a Fairtrade price (or market price if higher), will receive additional Fairtrade premium payments to invest in long term community and business development projects of their own choice.
