Did you know that most chocolate consumed in the US is tainted with the labor of more than a quarter of a million child slaves in Africa? Whether we have wanted it or not, over the years most of our purchases have supported slavery in the chocolate industry. Fair Trade certifies only chocolate products that demonstrate there is no slave labor in the supply chain
This Valentine’s Day you can be one of hundreds of thousands of people who will be giving Fair Trade chocolate to their Valentines. Look for Fair Trade chocolate at your local supermarkets and specialty stores. Make a difference in people’s lives.
