1.8 million children work in the cocoa fields of Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire.
These children are vulnerable to brutal labor practices, including trafficking and slavery.
Candy companies--including but not limited to Nestlé, Hershey, Cargill, ADM, and Barry Callebout--have admitted accountability and promised to remedy this situation. Sadly, 14 years has passed since this agreement and little has changed.
The candy industry is a US 70-billion-dollar industry. It should have changed.
