Working to Make Easter Traffik Free

February 16, 2016

You may not be aware that boys as young as 10 are trafficked to perform the traffikbackbreaking and hazardous job of harvesting cocoa beans in the Cote D’Ivoire, West Africa. These cocoa beans are turned into the chocolate that we buy and love from our local supermarkets.

As Easter approaches, supermarkets are gearing up to sell millions of chocolate Easter eggs, that may be made with cocoa beans picked by the hand of a trafficked child. easter eggs

Supermarkets have enormous buying power and influence, we are asking them to help end the trafficking of children by stocking more certified chocolate eggs – those stamped with the Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or UTZ Certified mark.

These certification marks show customers that the chocolate has been made in monitored conditions that aim to prevent the trafficking of children.
