A Matter of Taste

Spread the love


‘A Matter of Taste’ examines what the six biggest chocolate companies and the three certifiers are doing to prevent and end human trafficking and child labour in the cocoa farms of West Africa. Never before have these questions been asked or the businesses compared on what they are doing.



Mondelēz International welcomes the release of the report ‘A Matter of Taste’ and the visibility it brings to the critical issue of child labor as well as to the significant progress achieved towards making the cocoa supply chain sustainable. Our $400 million Cocoa Life program invests directly in cocoa communities and has already reached 92,000 farmers. We are pleased that Stop The Traffik recognizes that Cocoa Life tackles the root causes of child labor and adopts a community-led development approach. We value our ongoing dialogue with Stop The Traffik and will continue to seek their opinion as we strengthen our approach to tackling child labor based on recommendations from human rights consultancy Embode.
