Help Protect Vulnerable People
Help protect vulnerable people from modern slavery, child labour and forced labour. ACRATH invites you to support the Be Slavery Free campaign calling on Starbucks to Come Clean on Cocoa.
You may think of Starbucks as a coffee chain, but the company also sells huge amounts of chocolate products. With more than 35,000 Starbucks stores worldwide selling millions of drinks and snacks daily, that’s a lot of chocolate. Starbucks sources cocoa, the raw ingredient for chocolate, from West Africa. Much of the cocoa from the region is linked to serious social and environmental problems, including child labour. Starbucks claims to source its cocoa responsibly. But when it comes to paying cocoa farmers a living income, addressing child labour, or protecting forests, Starbucks is evading accountability
Having engaged with Starbuck for over three years in an effort to bring about change, Be Slavery Free has now launched a campaign. You are invited to join the campaign. Tell Starbucks to come clean on cocoa. Click here to write a letter to Starbucks.
