The Dark Side of Chocolate

Hi guys,


I just saw that documentary on the dark side of the chocolate industry. It's sickening. This industry according to this documentary is covering one of the worst child labor and human trafficking scheme. The who worked on this documentary journalists investigated how human trafficking and child labor in the Ivory Coast fuels the worldwide chocolate industry. The crew interviewed both proponents and opponents of these alleged practices, and most of the time used hidden camera to capture the reality in cocoa plantations.

We now have to think twice before eating those nice chocolate bars we love so much. We have to request more transparency in regards of work conditions of people working on both cocoa plantations. We might want to stick to fairtrade chocolates.


Purple love,
