100% exploitation free the norm in chocolate
the problemThings aren’t being shared evenly in the chocolate supply chain. The chain starts with millions of farmers who produce cocoa and ends with the billions of consumers who enjoy chocolate. But what about the bit in between? This section is dominated by a handful of chocolate giants that profits from keeping the cocoa purchasing price as low as possible. As a result, farmers are forced to live in poverty... leading to illegal child labor and forced labor.
What?! Illegal child labor?Right now there is illegal child labor and forced labor on cocoa farms in West Africa. This is a result of the unequally divided cocoa chain. Tony’s Chocolonely exists to change that. Illegal child labor and forced labor are against the law - it needs to stop.
