Re: Company (Inditex) behind Zara investigated for 'slave labour'

There could be a danger of subcontracters using slave labour in other sectors too.
The Dark Side of Chocolate
Quote:
Lindt & Sprüngli’s ‘flavour’ cocoa is sourced from South America and the Caribbean. Its ‘consumer’ beans come exclusively from Ghana. Cocoa beans for cocoa butter are sourced by third parties mainly from West Africa and Indonesia and then processed – i.e. roasted and pressed – into cocoa butter. Lindt & Sprüngli insists its suppliers to adhere to the Lindt & Sprüngli Supplier Code of Conduct. In future, Lindt & Sprüngli will look into possibilities of extending its traceability programme for cocoa beans to cocoa butter.
