Chocolate lover? Ditto here at Global Exchange.
That’s why cocoa is the current focus of our Fair Trade Campaign. It’s a tasty way to get Fair Trade-savvy. Plus, chocolate companies have a nasty tendency to use cocoa grown using child and forced labor. Let’s end that, with Fair Trade.
Global Exchange is actively challenging the entire cocoa industry to stop using child labor and start using Fair Trade certified cocoa, through corporate campaigns and policy work.
First off, our goal is to persuade these two companies to take the lead in the United States by bringing Fair Trade certified chocolate to checkout aisles and school fundraising:
We can’t end child labor and poverty in the cocoa fields without YOUR involvement.

- We Want More from our S'mores Campaign
