Take Action
Online, in your own community, or even just when you’re buying chocolate! If every single one of us takes just a minute or two for an online fax action or more time to take action in our communities, together we WILL end child slavery in the cocoa fields.

How/Where to Buy Fair Trade Chocolate 

News Updates
World news updates related to the global fair trade movement.

For now, chocolate is a bitter sweet…

  • 284,000 children toil in abusive labour conditions in West Africa’s cocoa fields
  • Cocoa companies pay prices so low that many cocoa farmers cannot meet their families’ basic needs

But we can fix all that...with Fair Trade certified chocolate:

  • Forced and abusive child labor are prohibited
  • Farming families earn a price that is adequate to meet their basic human needs
  • Environmentally sustainable production methods are required
