Film tip 'The Dark Side of Chocolate'

This engaging documentary explores what is behind the sweet taste of chocolate. As the film crew travels to African countries such as Mali and Ivory Coast it becomes apparent that child trafficking, child labour and even slavery is all to common on cocoa plantations.

As Ghana and Ivory Coast alone supply 75% of the world's cocoa market the scale of the problem is hard to ignore. But while the problem seems obvious and is supported by evidence, large corporations like Nestle continue to make huge profits without making efforts to tackle the issue.
