Chocolate: The Dark Side of the Cocoa Industry

Thursday, April 25, 2013  
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM

Africa’s Cote d'Ivoire is a primary source for cacao, the main ingredient in chocolate. Cacao is often harvested by child laborers, lured away from their families by false promises of hourly wages and access to education. Steps have been taken by the Chocolate Manufacturers Association to outlaw these practices, but several major companies are not yet in full compliance. Find out the villains and the heroes in this not-so-sweet documentary.
