The dark side of chocolate

In 2001, the Chocolate Manufacturers Association and its members signed a document that prohibited child trafficking and labour in the cocoa industry after 2008. Despite this effort, numerous children are still forced to work on cocoa plantations in Africa. The Dark Side of Chocolate is a 2010 documentary about the exploitation and slave trading of African children to harvest chocolate still occurring nearly ten years after the cocoa industry pledged to end it.
