Changing the Chocolate Industry

Recording: Changing the Chocolate Industry, Mar 12, 2019


This is a story about cocoa, a Dutch journalist, and how a small chocolate brand is changing the global chocolate industry from within by going against the grain. Right now slaves are working on cocoa farms in West Africa. Many of them are children. Tony's Chocolonely exists to change that. Our vision is 100% slave-free chocolate. Not just our chocolate, but all chocolate worldwide. Now the #1 chocolate brand in the Netherlands, we're leading by example to show other companies that chocolate can be made without the use of modern slavery or illegal child labor.
