How the Chocolate Industry Still Profits from Child Labor | Business documentary from 2019
In 2001, the lucrative chocolate industry, due to pressure from NGOs, committed itself to put an end to child labor in cacao plantations before 2006. But has that promise been kept? The Ivory Coast, the world’s largest cacao producer, made a real effort to eradicate this scourge on the country. They built schools and trained farmers. Television adverts even reminded populations that child labor is illegal. But further into isolated areas of the forest, at the end of near-impassable roads, Paul Moreira discovered child slaves, forced to work in plantations, their incomes often seized by traffickers. These child slaves are separated from their parents and sometimes resold onto other traffickers.
