Chocolate lovers, I have some bad news for you: quite surely the vast majority of you, by consuming chocolate, are financing, and therefore favouring, the exploitation of children in African cocoa plantations.
Powerful and perfectly legally armoured multinationals, people in extreme humility in need of employment and resources, lax and manipulable governments together with a star product highly consumed by the West, make chocolate a perfect Molotov cocktail for the violation of human rights.
“The Case of Chocolate” is a documentary directed by several Dutch journalists who embark on the adventure of uncovering everything that lies behind every appealing and seemingly innocent bar of chocolate, always with an eye towards child exploitation.
Their goal? To try to make this world a better place.
