Direct Trade Chocolate Tasting – Mesjokke

Luc and Per from Mesjokke make their own chocolate, in their own factory in Utrecht. They buy their cocoa directly from the cocoa farmers and pay a fair price. That’s really honest chocolate! It’s not only fair trade, it’s also very tasty. That must be tasted, of course! This Saturday afternoon you can have fun in the Greenhouse. It is fingerlickin’ good…
