Ever wondered what it’s like for the people growing your chocolate? Ever thought that they may be children? This article in The Washington Post breaks all illusion that there is no human cost involved in the chocolate industry. The food giants have all made claims to stop child labour but many cannot trace the cocoa they use. Insight into the daily lives of these children is not only a wake-up call to consumers - it is a call to make public private partnerships accountable, transparent, and to change core business practice.
