🎧 Chocolate—the world’s most seductive treat and its dark shadow (Rear Vision)

Listened Chocolate—the world’s most seductive treat and its dark shadow from ABC Radio National

Chocolate is one of our most popular indulgences but there is a darker side to the industry – one connected with colonialism, the industrial revolution and modern-day slavery.

This podcast dives into the history of chocolate and its relationship with child labour. I was intrigued by the way in which some companies will purchase fair trade for a single product creating the false impression that all their products are made with fair trade chocolate. It reminded me of Jeremy Cherfas’ discussion of ethical coffee.
