Slavery Free Chocolate

Are You Buying Ethical Chocolate?

girl posterDid you know that much of the chocolate available in Australia comes from cocoa beans picked by children, many of whom have been trafficked or forced to work in exploitative conditions?   It is estimated that there are at least 800,000 children working in the cocoa industry at present:  5-10% of these have been trafficked.  To ensure that the chocolate you buy has been produced in an ethical manner, look for the following labels: Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or UTZ. 

How can you help?
