We frequently indulge ourselves and our family members with chocolate, however we not often cease to consider the way it will get from the cocoa tree to the candy store.
This movie, Chocolate’s Coronary heart of Darkness, goes to Ivory Coast, which produces about 40 % of the world’s cocoa. It tells the story of how 1000’s of kids from neighbouring Burkina Faso and Ghana are trafficked to reap cocoa pods.
The youngsters work lengthy days with toxic pesticides and harmful instruments, with little or no reward. The Ivory Coast farms and cooperatives then provide the cocoa to the largest chocolate producers on the earth.
On this investigation into baby labour and deforestation, we journey to Europe to ask the chocolate business executives and members of the European Parliament why an business value greater than $100bn yearly remains to be concerned in digital slavery and environmental destruction.
