Slavery-Free Easter

2 April 2019 | General Interest


Slavery-free chocolate tastes delicious. Apart from the great taste, it also means that no enslaved child has been used in the production of the chocolate.

You can buy slavery-free chocolate in big supermarkets and smaller shops. The easiest way to tell if your chocolate is slavery-free is to check if it has one of these commonly used certification symbols on the wrapping.








Children as young as 12 years old are picking cocoa beans in West Africa that are used in the chocolate we eat. Some of these children are trafficked and taken away from their families. Most are forced to pick cocoa from an early age for low, or no wages, for long hours, in dangerous working conditions and without any possibility of attending school.
