Welcome! Thanks for visiting Slave Free Chocolate. 1.8 million children in the countries of Ghana and Cote D' Ivoire are vulnerable for falling into the worst forms of child labor category (UN ILO 182). Too many of these children are victims of trafficking and used as slave labor. Under the Harkin Engel Protocol the candy companies, including but not limited to, Nestle, Hershey, Cargill, ADM and Barry Callebout admitted accountability and promised to remedy this situation. Sadly, 14 years has passed and very little it anything has changed for the better. Given that the candy industry is a 70 billion dollar industry this should be a win. Help us make this happen.
