Why support us?
We are a group of volunteers of Altrocioccolato, an event that is working to create connections between fair economy and fair commerce, linking local craftsmen, artists and fair commerce projects.
For several years we have been committed with enthusiasm to the development of the event.
After the 14th edition we want to grow bigger and to travel around the world!
Thanks to the event we have been in contact with the people working inside the plantations, to have a closer look to the problems and the struggles of everyday life inside the production process of cocoa.
We firmly believe that another world is possible: we want to draw people closer to world of fair economy. The cocoa product and production is the mean we want to use to draw people closer to the conditions inside the plantations thus valuing the work beyond the product.
What are you helping us to achieve?
– The travelling Museum of Chocolate
The world of cocoa is complex and hides a lot of shadows.
The environment around the workers is often unfair and far from the sweetness contained in the chocolate bars.
Our will is to set up a travelling Museum made of cocoa pods, cocoa seeds, raw materials with a laboratory where the production of the chocolate bars is explained in details and colourful information panels.
In these panels we will tell of the world of chocolate, of cocoa trees and the story behind their worldwide spread, of the journey of the cocoa beans to become chocolate and the conditions of the workers inside the production process.
- The Solidarity Caravan
We will travel throughout Italy to spread the topics of fair economy in order to give a tangible help to cocoa producers in Togo and Ivory Coast. These groups of producers are working to make fair supply chains of cocoa. We will bring through the squares of Italy a travelling museum, the beginning of our adventure.
You are helping us to sow the idea of justice!
We can realize all of this thanks to your help.
You can meet us in every Italian city, we will experience the world of cocoa, the things to avoid and all the precious sides of fair and good chocolate for everyone!
Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
