Backwards NOT Forwards
Thousands of boys as young as 10 yrs old, from the Cote D’Ivoire and neighbouring countries, are trafficked to pick and harvest Cocoa beans? We believe chocolate companies have a responsibility to seriously address the key issues that contribute to children being trafficked to work on cocoa farms and prevent the physical, emotional and sexual abuse these children are subjected to. It was therefore a great disappointment when Mondelez, the largest chocolate company in the world (they own Cadbury, Milka and Toblerone brands) did not produce a Fair Trade Easter Egg in 2016 as they had done in previous years.
What can we do? Backwards is NOT Forwards. Ask Mondelez why they have not stocked their Fairtrade Dairy Milk Egg for Easter 2016!
