Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate and Africa Theme Week.
Cacao is often grown by subsistence farmers in distant lands, making oversight in labor practices challenging.
Unfortunate consequences of this geographic schism can be poor labor conditions, low pay, and forms of slavery—conditions some chocolate makers are trying to address.
Today's Milk Chocolate (bar) was from Tony's Chocolonely (Amsterdam, The Netherlands). This company has pledged to work to help eliminate slavery (in the cacao supply chain going back to farms in Africa) by making 100% slave free chocolate.
This thick 32% cacao milk chocolate bar was a creamy, high-end milk chocolate experience.
