What do you do when you find out that slavery forms the basis of your chocolate bar? You produce your own slave free chocolate and you make it your mission to rid the entire chocolate sector of slave labour. Tony‘s Chocolonely’s story is an inspiring one on how the consumer can impact circomstances under which products are being made and on how to make a difference in a world that is set in chocolate. Responsible business at its
finest; be inspired and find out what you can do to make the world a better place.
