For the first time, these two bars will also carry Halal Certification.

Commercial director David Francis said: “We are especially pleased with these two new flavours joining our flagship range. The mango and coconut combination tastes wonderful and we think is unique on the market, while the milk and whole almond bar is a very superior version of this perennial favourite.”

Imam Iftikhar Daad al-Alzhari, head of education at Harrow Central Mosque in London, said: “Fairtrade is continuing to grow at an incredible rate worldwide and is going from strength to strength. One of the reasons for its success is companies such as Divine Chocolate have committed to promote and sell chocolates which are Fairtrade certified. Divine Chocolate does not only believe that farmers in the developing countries deserve something better in return, they have practically demonstrated this through the 45% ownership of Divine Chocolate by the cocoa farmers.”

The new flavours have first listings in Booths and Liberty’s and will be on sale at Divine’s Fairtrade Fortnight Pop Up Shop in Seven Dials in London.
