Fairtrade America, the leading international certifier of ethically sourced products, is upping its efforts to spread the word about the serious issues of child labor & slavery in the cocoa industry. Fairtrade America & The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands will screen «The Chocolate Case» on November 8th. Join us for an evening of education, empowerment & chocolate!

«The Chocolate Case» follows the incredible journey of three Dutch journalists, who tried to persuade large corporations to end the use of child labor in the chocolate industry, but when rebuffed, decide to take matters into their own hands by creating the world's first slave-free chocolate bar. Their epic 10-year journey, resulted in the creation of Tony's Chocolonely, now one of Holland's leading brands. The film is beautifully pieced together using archive footage, combined with new material, resulting in an up-tempo, funny, sometimes moving, but overall inspiring film.

The film will be followed by a brief Q&A.
