As people across the country celebrate Valentine's Day, child and trafficked labor continues on cocoa farms in West Africa.  Today, the International Labor Rights Forum released a brand new chocolate company scorecard ranking companies based on their commitment to ending child labor and ensuring transparency in their supply chains.  Check it out here!

Three companies stood out as the most "bitter" when it came to worker rights: Hershey, M&M/Mars and Nestle.  Since 2001, we have heard the same talking points from major chocolate companies about what they are doing about child labor, but the practice still continues.  Please join us today in getting beyond the talking points and asking Hershey, M&M/Mars and Nestle what each company is doing specifically to ensure they are respecting internationally recognized labor rights in their cocoa sourcing.

      Even if the commodity(chocolate) in question were a necessity such practices would be totally unacceptible. For chocolate manufacturers to make such huge profit off of an indulgence food, and give nothing back to the communities and laborers from which they profit is inexcusable. Chocolate is everywhere, and we all take it for granted, giving no thought to where it comes from and how its made. We can all make a positive change in the world by monitoring the companies that produce products that we take for granted. If we demand changes directly corporations and change the way we spend a small amount of our income, by boycotting companies that engage in such horrendous practices and supporting those that don't, we can help to improve the lives of multitudes.

      I believe that everyone wins when we agree to respect everyone's human rights.

      I want to support a decent living wage for cocoa farmers and a childhood of happiness and learning for their children. I am aware of the chocolate industry's measures to eliminate child labor, and they are not working. Please buy fair trade cocoa.
