STOP THE TRAFFIK has been campaigning since November 2012, asking Mondelēz for two things:
Despite their recent announcements we have still not received a clear answer to our questions! There are still no clear details about when chocolate bars such as Toblerone will be made with certified cocoa beans and no timeline for certification of the rest of their range.
This is not enough and we need your help getting Mondelēz’s attention.
We have sent out 20,000 postcards to supporters who have signed them to petition Mondelēz, asking the cocoa giant to make Toblerone traffik-free. We’ll be presenting these to Mondelēz at their London and Melbourne offices on Anti-Slavery Day, Friday 18 October.
But we want to make an even bigger impact! We really want to grab Mondelēz's attention and how better than utilising the power of cyberspace? So this Anti-Slavery Day, join our Thunderclap to add your voice and ask Mondelēz this one question: When will Toblerone be traffik-free?
STOP THE TRAFFIK
We are STOP THE TRAFFIK, a global movement of individuals, communities and organisations fighting to prevent human trafficking throughout the world.
Human trafficking is when a person is bought and sold against their will. This is often through the use of threat, force or deception. It is the fastest growing international crime and no country is unaffected.
We campaign against trafficking in many forms and one of our key campaigns focuses on raising awareness of child trafficking in the cocoa industry. Over a third of the cocoa that makes the world’s chocolate comes from the Ivory Coast, West Africa and here thousands of children are trafficked from the Ivory Coast and neighbouring countries to pick and harvest these beans.
Since we started out in 2006 our message has not changed but our voice has grown stronger. We have over 55,000 supporters throughout the world and together we campaign for traffik-free chocolate. We want the ingredients of violence and exploitation to be removed from chocolate. Because you don’t always have to eat chocolate for it to make you feel sick.
Join our Thunderclap and add your voice to our chocolate campaign, demanding that Mondelez eliminate trafficking from their supply chains and answer our questions, giving a public timeline for certifying their chocolate ranges.
