In the Media: Cocoa-nomics: Now can chocolate companies stamp out slavery?

From the CNN Freedom Project: (March 6, 2014)

“Is change really happening in the cocoa fields? Is child labor actually being eradicated, is slavery in the plantations finally coming to and end and are conditions improving for workers? After watching Cocoa-nomics, CNN’s investigation into the chocolate industry’s supply chains, Richard Quest challenged a panel of experts.”*

From the CNN Freedom Project: (February 17, 2014)

“Two years ago, the documentary Chocolate’s Child Slaves exposed the plight of youngsters forced to harvest the beans that make the chocolate we eat around the world. Many of the children made to work in the cocoa plantations in countries like Ivory Coast have never even tasted chocolate. Now CNN has returned to the plantations, this time with the Executive Vice President of Nestle, to find out if anything has changed and to see if the chocolate industry is willing and able to eradicate slavery from its supply chains.”**
