Our CEO, Ruth Dearnley, has been demonstrating how to enjoy chocolate with a lighter conscience in the STOP THE TRAFFIK office, now that the first packets of Fair trade Maltesers have hit the shelves.

We are delighted to share the news that after Mars promised to make Maltesers Fair trade last autumn, they have been true to their word and chocolate lovers in the UK are now able to enjoy Maltesers in the knowledge that no forced labour has been involved in their production.
Up to 75% of the world’s cocoa beans are grown in small farms in West Africa. In the Ivory Coast alone, there are an estimated 200,000 children working the fields, many trafficked and labouring against their will, to create chocolate enjoyed around the world.
We can all help combat trafficking in the cocoa industry by making the simple choice of buying Fair trade or Rainforest Alliance certified chocolate.
Blowing off some steam in the STOP THE TRAFFIK office.
