Are you buying Slavery-free Easter Chocolate?
Did 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?
The International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF) estimates that there are 500,000 – 1,500,000 children working in the cocoa sector in West Africa. Want slavery-free Easter chocolate? Look for these certification labels: Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ.
