Fair Trade Houston presents The Chocolate Case
Fair Trade Houston is hosting a second screening of The Chocolate Case and tasting of Fair Trade chocolate and other Fair Trade goodies. Guests can come for the film, enjoy the treats, and even shop the Fair Trade store for gifts.
The film follows three Dutch journalists who uncover child labor in the cocoa production chain, which triggers them to try to persuade large corporations to end unethical practices. The trio sets out on a mission to develop the first ‘slave-free’ chocolate bar, known as ‘Tony’s Chocolonely’ – now one of Holland’s leading chocolate brands. The film is both an expose of problems within the chocolate supply chain, and an inspirational story of people trying to change the world they live in.
