Cocoa Child Labor and Deforestation Strategy Session to be held December 18th

Cocoa Strategy Session Announcement


Members of the Child Labor Coalition’s Cocoa Committee are convening a strategy session in Washington, DC on Tuesday, December 18, 2018. The meeting will take place at Fairtrade America, 1400 Eye Street, NW, suite 425.


The goal of the Cocoa Committee’s efforts is to reduce child labor, child trafficking and deforestation in West Africa, where more than two million children help produce cocoa, a critical ingredient in the chocolate that so many of us consume.


Mighty Earth’s Etelle Higonnet will provide a number of updates to participants, including a discussion of efforts by the European Union to enact legislation that would work to make cocoa supply chains more responsible.
