In the countries where the cocoa is produced that Nestlé is supplied with, such as Cote d'Ivoire and Mali, there is child labor and child trafficking. Children are taken from their families and forced to work on cocoa plantations for often no pay at all. There are companies that produce fair trade chocolate, but they do not compete with popular companies such as Nestlé. If Nestlé were able to ensure their chocolate is fair trade, they would be able to compete with other top chocolate producers, and eventually encourage them to follow the movement toward fair trade. Everyone that signs this petition is pledging that they will support Nestlé in their move to fair trade.
