Most cocoa workers live below the poverty line of $2 per day. Yet the companies that make your favorite chocolate bars are not doing much to support the women who grow and pick cocoa for them.
Companies are happy to put women front and center in their advertising but not in their supply chains.
This matters because it’s women who most often provide food for their families and those families are going hungry.
And because you buy the bars, you really can change the way those chocolate companies do business.
