We have been cooking up a storm in our kitchen over the last few months to come up with not one, but two tasty new Geobars. Geobar Crunchy Granola packed with oats and Fairtrade honey and Geobar Chocolate Break, a chewy raisin cereal bar half coated in Fairtrade milk chocolate. Perfect to take along with you on your Springtime walks!

March 1, 2012 - Happy Birthday Geobar and let’s raise £1000 for Sport Relief!
Today is Geobar’s 13th Birthday. To celebrate, we are launching a special version of our GeoHero game. Score over 1000 points on our leaderboard, and we will donate £1 to Sport Relief. This much money could, for example, transform the lives of a whole community living in the slums of Kenya by giving them permanent access to clean water. We need 1000 of you to get playing – so go change the world one bite at a time and have some Geolly Good Fun …
February 14, 2012 - Senor Geo de Chocolat has found his soul mate …
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Senor Geo de Chocolat has fallen head over heels for Fair Madame Cocoa. She is sweet, original and full of goodness. She oozes natural beauty and, most importantly, she has a caring heart. She met Senor Geo de Chocolat throughout recent competition and is looking forward to sharing romantic days of fruit picking in the countryside and nights counting the stars. Fair Madame Cocoa is our new chocolate character – come back on line later this month to find out more about the new Geobar product that she will be associated with!
February 7, 2012 - Take a Step this Fairtrade Fortnight …

From coffee mornings to street carnivals, your Traidcraft Big Brew can be anything you want it to be and we have some lovely resources to help you host a brilliant event.
Little steps add up to big changes. Join with us in changing the world one bite at a time!
December 19, 2011 - Go the extra mile with Geobar and Sport Relief!
For 2012, Geobar is once again a supporting partner of Sport Relief. Geobar packs on sale in March will carry a lovely bright red sticker indicating that 5p from the sale of that box will be donated to Sport Relief.
As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. All the money raised by the public helps people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.
The Sport Relief Weekend takes place from 23rd to 25th March and our Geobar team will be there to meet you at some of the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Miles around the country. There will be more fun things happening on our website too to raise even more funds. Sign up to our newsletter for the latest updates or enter the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile now at sportrelief.com
When you fundraise for Sport Relief, you’ll help to transform lives – both on your doorstep in the UK and throughout the world’s poorest countries.
Sport Relief is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England/Wales); SC039730 (Scotland)
