our statement against chocolate

NVBM asks that all future bake sale donations be free of chocolate. This decision has been made in light of the intense amount of water that it takes to produce chocolate, but more importantly regarding the issue of human slavery, and in particular child slavery.

“The truth is that consumers today have no sure way of knowing if the chocolate they are buying involved

the use of child labor or slave labor. There are many different labels on chocolate bars today, such as Fair Trade Certified, however, no single label can guarantee that the chocolate was made without the use of exploitive labor. In 2010, the founders of the Fair Trade Certification process had to suspend several of their West African suppliers due to evidence that they were using child labor.”
(Food Empowerment Project)

Chocolate: The Bitter Truth @ http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/passionateeyeshowcase/2010/chocolate/

***As always, NVBM encourages the use of fair trade/unbleached sugar, unbleached flour, and to refrain from the use of palm oil.
