A farmer from West Africa has visited Exmouth to tell residents about the importance of supporting Fairtrade produce.
Isaac Baidoo is a member of Kuapa Kokoo, a Fairtrade cooperative in Ghana which grows cocoa beans for the brand Divine Chocolate.
Isaac, who is both a farmer in his own right and a welfare representative for others in their cooperative, came to Exmouth as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.
During his visit, he spoke to a primary schools conference attended by youngsters from across the town, then visited Exmouth Community College where he spoke to around 100 pupils.
He also attended a reception with residents and dignitaries including Exmouth mayor Brian Cole.
Tim Dumper, of the Exmouth Fairtrade Steering Group, said he would like to thank The Beacon School and the community college for hosting the events.
He added: “We would like to thank Isaac for his very informative presentations, and we wish him, and Kuapa Kokoo, all the best for the future.”
