Ghirardelli: It’s time to go Fair Trade now!

22nd July, 2014 - Posted by Sakshi Pathania - No Comments

Ghirardelli_FTlabel450pxThis year, we’ve emailed Ghirardelli’s headquarters over 700 times and more than 10,000 people have joined the call to ensure that the premium chocolate sold is made using certified Fair Trade cocoa.

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!

Join us on Thursday, July 24 to tell Ghirardelli to go Fair Trade.

We think this issue is too important to be postponed. We want Ghirardelli to start listening NOW!

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.
