Shady Chocolate – The Dark Side of Chocolate
IN-DEPTH VIDEOS, 21 Sep 2015
Ever since it was revealed that the chocolate industry is involved with child slavery in the Ivory Coast, the industry has been busy – due to consumer demands – explaining what exactly it does to actively fight trafficking and child labour.
But does the industry live up to its own promises?
In this investigative film, director Miki Mistrati tries to find out, if the chocolate industry – which is one of the largest corporations in the world – speak the truth, when they say that they provide education, medical care etc for the children of the Ivory Coast. However, the project runs into trouble already from the get-go because the embassy of the Ivory Coast won’t let Miki enter the country until he has an invitation – from the chocolate industry.
