On Friday we went to Cadbury World. We got to eat chocolate and we went to this room where there was this lady who talked about Fairtrade. Fairtrade is where farmers grow something and they need to be paid the right amount of money so they can grow and sell more. We learnt how to make chocolate and how they ate in the past - they used to drink it. We went into a cinema where they told us how they made the chocolate and the chairs did different things so it felt like we were the coco beans.
