Have you ever purchased a chocolate bar in your lifetime? If so, I have bad news for you: you’re a criminal. You may be wondering when Congress passed a law against chocolate, but that’s not actually the issue at hand. The issue is that everyone who has bought chocolate has supported child slavery. Don’t be alarmed. You’re not going to jail or anything and no judge would ever take this case, but this is the subject of the documentary The Chocolate Case.
The Chocolate Case follows the journey of Dutch journalist
Teun van de Keuken (or Tony for short), who tried to expose the chocolate industry for their use of child slavery for harvesting
cocoa beans. Although this started out as a journalistic endeavor, the mission evolved over many years and Tony ended up creating
the first 100% slave-free chocolate bars with his company, Tony Chocolonely.
