Chocolate - the bitter truth (child slavery)

Postby Kay » Thu 10 Nov 2011 10:02 GMT

As some of you know, November is chocolate month on Not Delia. We've been having fun learning all about chocolate, sampling it, and we even had a visit to a little "factory" where they make artisan luxury chocolates.

Delicious as chocolate is, there's a darker side to the industry - child slavery.

The BBC's Panorama investigated the issue and ND published an article about it today.

PS: We've written about modern slavery before on BE:

Please add your voices to the campaign against child slavery. And do comment here if you have anything to say about the issue.
