Ghirardelli Chocolate claims to make premium chocolate by carefully selecting cocoa beans of the highest quality, but real quality should not come at the cost of environmental destruction, poverty, and bitter child labor. We are demanding the company label its chocolate as certified Fair Trade
Earlier this month we were set to meet with Ghirardelli’s leadership, however they postponed the meeting a second time. And now it’s time we take to the streets!
On Thursday, July 24th, we are calling on the Fair Trade community to come together to speak up for cocoa farmers and urge Ghirardelli to Put a Fair Trade Label On It.
Join us for a rally at Ghirardelli’s flagship store during the height of tourist season. We’ll be collecting signatures to our petition and educating passersby about Ghirardelli’s practice and the benefits of Fair Trade to producers around the globe.
