The Dark Side of Chocolate : Child Trafficking and Illegal Child Labor in the Cocoa Industry( Visual )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does your favourite chocolate have a bitter taste? Maybe it will after this horrifying uncovering of brutal trafficking and illegal child labour in the chocolate industry. The programme sets out to investigate persistent rumours of child trafficking and illegal child labour in the chocolate industry. In Mali shocking hidden footage reveals illegal trafficking of small children to the cocoa fields in neighbouring Ivory Cost. Kids as young as seven years of age work in the plantations, where they face a dangerous job cutting down the cocoa and carrying heavy loads. The Dark Side of Chocolate conflicts with the pictures painted by large international companies like Nestle, Berry Callebaut and Mars who signed the Cocoa Protocol in 2001 promising to work for a total eradication of child labour in the cocoa sector by 2008. Now, two years later, this film documents that child labour and trafficked children still is a heavy burden to the cocoa industry
